I checked my options today:

- plane, have to travel from Wednesday to Wednesday, Ryanair only does
flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays. This means taking off a full week
for 2 days of fun, while I'll be bored for the other 5 days.
- Instead of flying with Ryanair, fly with SAS, but that's $$$
- car + boat, or just car completely. This will cost me somewhere
between 200 and 250 euros. I think that's quite expensive for two days
of fun.

I don't like these three options. I have plans to come back to the
Netherlands for two weeks halfway september, and I don't think my
employment allows me to add 3 weeks in front of that.
