Everything Was Gouda.

Well, I have been so lax in getting new posts done. I thought I’d correct this today with a quick note about a trip I took with Ben and Tim. We visited Holland in April/May bound to do a 12 day cycling trip on a route picked out by Ben. We flew in to Amsterdam and stayed with host friends John and Lia at their B & B in Aalsmeer.

While at Aalsmeer with John and Lia, Ben guided us on the bikes to Flora, the world’s largest centre for flower distribution. If you visit Holland, make sure you go this place. It is amazing.

We were fortunate that Ben had made friends with B & B hosts Lia and John on a previous trip. Not only did we get to visit them this time, but they arranged tour bikes for Ben and Tim, and an E-bike for me. (I knew I’d never keep up with the others on a regular bike!)

We spent a couple of nights in Aalsmeer with John and Lia, visited war memorial cemeteries in Arnhem as well as interesting other places such as the outdoor museum and the magnificent gardens at Keukenhof. The trip was a huge success as far as I was concerned. I got to spend time with my sons. I met new people and made new friends. The food was great, the beer was better and I only fell off the bike three times in the whole trip! What more can I say? (Well, actually, if you’d care to see more pics you can click here. ‘Bye for now! God bless.)

    • Glad you enjoyed it Jan. Did you see the pic of me on my back? Ben decided to capture my fall rather than help me up. He was laughing so hard!
      Love. M

  1. Wow Cuz that was awesome, and there are lots of wonderful pictures.

    An E-bike is new to me, seems ideal for around here, what with all the hills. Bet they are quite expensive

    Glad you spent quality time with your boys

    Love Brian & Jan >

    • It was a fabulous time for me Brian. I think they had a good time too. The e-bike was a blessing. They are expensive but so many older folks are able to get back on two wheels because of them.
      Great to hear from you. Love to you and Jan.

  2. Looks like you and the boys had a great trip seeing many sights along the way and enjoying good food and fellowship
