Walking to Assen on acornsSeptember 6, 2017 in the Netherlands
1st night spent at a Vrienden op der Fiets bed and breakfast. Chatting with hosts is part of the charm. This house had a hippy feel.
Terrible trouble with my right eye in the morning : vision blurred though not painful. Worked out by midday that I hadn't removed a contact lens the night before and I now had two lenses in one eye. Quickly rectified.
Initially followed my nose - a direct but uninteresting route. Latterly followed the knoppunt network - much more scenic but longer.
Oak trees for shelter much of the way, hence walking on acorns. No elevenses and lunch was at the Pitstop cafe in Tynaarlo.
Thai evening meal in centre of Assen - very quiet after Groningen.Read more
