Ofcourse it is very cool to rent a punter and glide through the camals of Giethoorn. But don't think you can punter and not pay attention. Before you know it you will end up like this guy. Luckely he had some friends aboard who, after laughing for a few minutes, pulled him back on board.
Husband was done with steering so I got on the steering wheel ... boy! that wasn t as easy as it looked! Moved over the water like a drunk dragonfly ... yelled at hubby he could steer again ... far too scary!
The kids did not mind at all, they thought it quite funny.
Don t try to hang on too long.....
Haha, this guy was boating with some firends, and I think they drank more than just lemonade ;-)
His friends just left him hanging here and too bad this bloke was as trained as he was .. he just used his arms to get on land... we were so hoping for him to fall!
It can be quite busy on the canals in Giethoorn. A sign here says: give way to traffic from the left.
The canals are narrow so it takes some steermanship to not get into trouble with other boats.
