    Day 65 - Emmerich to Brakel, 78 miles

    June 19, 2016 in the Netherlands

    New country and eventually a curve in the weather with no train today and even glimpses of the sun.

    One thing that's amazed me on this trip is that after a crossing a border even though you're on the same road and scenery the same you can instantly feel a different culture.

    You hear about it but first thing that strikes you about Holland is how cycle friendly it is. I covered nearly 80 miles today and it was all on cycle paths even through a couple of big towns. Even their bins next to the paths are tilted and like huge nets so you can throw your rubbish in without stopping.

    Always nice to have a bit of company on the ride and got talking to a Dutch guy called Rob a triathlete who was heading in the same direction and was happy to cruise at my touring pace until we reached his home town of Nijmegen. Really nice guy and great chatting about places we'd both riden in Europe, our bikes (very jealous of his five!), Holland and triathlons. Definitely reignited my interest in getting into doing one when I get back.

    After leaving Rob in Nijmegen it was head down along the river heading West towards Rotterdam. After a nice pint in a riverside pub I rode into the evening and checked into a really nice B&B owned by a lovely couple Ans and Hans. On walking into their home they asked if I loved dogs and said that I love them. The relaxed response of 'oh great we have three' and no warning I was a little shocked when they opened the door to be greeted by three huge alsatians that seemed to be in competition to see who could jump highest on me. Just love the reflaxed attitude of the Dutch as Ans calmly said I thought you said you loved dogs after Id clearly shat myself when they jumped on me.

    After the initial shock Billy, Rex and (never caught the third name, was Dutch) they turned out to be big softies and nice evening was spent chatting to my hosts.

    Tagesausflug Niederlande

    May 5 in the Netherlands

    Spontan ging es vom viel zu überfülltem Apenheul nach Elburg. Ein super schönes kleines Städtchen am Veluvemeer. Seelebaumeln lassen in kleinen Gassen. Anschließend eine Stunde relaxen im Wald. Akkus laden für den Alltag.

    Germany / Regensburg

    August 11, 2017 in the Netherlands

    11th August 2017.
    Arrived in Regensburg this afternoon. A real Bavarian town. Had a Bavarian lunch and staff got dressed in Bavarian costumes. Quite neat. Weather is cloudy and overcast with showers. Went for a little walk through the town. It is known as the ^ Medieval wounder of Germany^. This old town suffered hardly any damage in the second world War. It's now part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage.
    The last night on this boat. Transfer to our new boat tomorrow. Had a great night with a guy playing an electric violin. Graham was a dick and got up and danced the Irish jig. What a laugh. All these boring old farts. Had a few drinks. Last ones to go to bed.....as usual.

    Vienna

    August 8, 2017 in the Netherlands

    After our quick afternoon tour we went back to the boat for an early dinner as we were going to a classical concert at the City Palais Liechtenstein. What a beautiful palace. No wounder the poor people rebelled when they wasted so much money on such extravagant buildings. We got all dressed up and had drinks before the concert in this most beautiful room. Chandelier and gold on the walls. After drinks we listened to a great orchestra playing music by Strauss and Mozart. Very dynamic display by young musicians. Also the Vienna boys choir now allows girls to join this Academy and we had a group of young girls sing to us. Also had a young lady sing a aria and a spunky young guy sung a tenor. Awesome night. We are getting culturally sophisticated.Read more

    Vienna

    August 9, 2017 in the Netherlands

    To day we went to Schonbrunn Palace. It is the most famous and beautiful palace in Vienna. This is the summer palace of the Habsburgs who ruled much of Europe for over 600 years. The most influential ruler to have lived here was the famous Maria Theresa. Amazing place but not as good as Versailles. Lovely carriages. Beautiful gardens and statues.
