Almost there

Guess where we are!

In the last week we cycled south through Germany to Emden and took a ferry across an inlet to the Netherlands.

The weather has changed; it now feels more like summer. Although it is still cool and often cloudy, the sun has come back, the rain is less and the winds have dropped.

We are in Groningen taking a day off, our first rest day in several weeks. It is a bigger city than we’ve been in for a few weeks, a lively university town with history and old buildings. It feels very Dutch and very comfortable.

  1. Congratulations are in order for sure, you two mighty cyclists! What a stellar trip, and it was glorious to travel along with you. Although, somehow, I didn’t manage to end up in the superb shape the two of you are in. Inge, you look triumphant in the sunshine with your beer and bitterballen in front of you. Cheers to each of you!


  2. WOW! You guys ROCK! Very inspiring and fun to have travelled along with you on this amazing adventure. Thanks for the blog. Sounds like Happy Birthday wishes are in order to GOOD FOR YOU Roy! What will do next year? Any body’s guess!! Nothing (so to speak) is okay too…… your wonderful home awaits you…. your own bed and pillow will probably feel like gold!

  3. I will gladly trade you all the sunshine we have for all the rain you may encounter.

  5. You look pretty happy and relaxed in your photos. Congratulations on being nearly there! I hope the sun shines on you for the remainder of the trip.
