No Roads, No Cars, Just Boats

No Roads, No Cars, Just Boats


– [Narrator] Today’s
journey takes us to the Dutch town of Giethoorn. Giethoorn is just like any normal town. With one exception, roads. They don’t have them. (upbeat music) – [Narrator] And boats, lots of boats. – [Narrator] That’s Jan,
one of the town’s resident boat builders. He’s known for punters, a flat bottom boat that originated in Giethoorn. – [Narrator] And where there
are boats, there are bridges. 167 to be exact. And just like any town,
people need their groceries, their furniture, their beer, you name it. But in Giethoorn, they
must pass through Anton. He’s the town’s bridge guard. – [Narrator] One of those
boats is the fire boat. This is Bart and Erik. – [Narrator] And this is Jan. He’s in charge of
maintaining the natural lands around Giethoorn. – [Narrator] So, there you have it. The residents of Giethoorn prove that a life without asphalt, traffic and trips to the DMV can
be pretty damn great. Roads, who needs ’em? Bye, Giethoorn.
