Three Weeks

Three weeks from now we’ll be in the Netherlands. We’ll start cycling on May 13 with a ride from The Hague to Burgh-Haamstede in Zeeland, south of Rotterdam. It should be an easy and scenic day hopping from island to island in the southwest of the Netherlands. Easy unless there is a headwind. Or very easy if there is a tailwind. By the North Sea, you never know.

We were out for a ride today. Part of it was near the Vancouver airport, flat and near the ocean. A strong headwind on the way out to the sea and a fast ride back. A crosswind on the bridge back to the city. Good practice.

We’re looking forward to the trip.

  1. Sounds like a walk in the park compared to some of your trips but a lovely, and very pleasant ride.

  2. home again and getting the updates! love the travel colour for this year…. safety first! Can’t wait to follow your trip…..

  3. To clarify: It wasn’t a selfie of just me. It was actually a selfie of the two of us, but Roy has the Photoshop powers!

  4. Mahalo for your plans. Sounds great.

    Just came from a week in Laos and beginning 2 weeks in Myanmar. Had a delicious local lunch with many dishes for $2 USD today and at sunset saw the Shwedagon Pagoda with thousands of stupas glittering gold leaf in the waning light – magical. Looking forward to your cycling adventures. Safe travels. Aloha, Bill & Gretchen (Honolulu)

  5. The countdown is on! You both must be so excited. I’m excited for you. Love your choice of travel colours.
