Ahhh…The start of a New Year, an escape to nature. We had planned for weeks to escape the fireworks in our part of The Netherlands to a nice quiet location in the eastern woods of Drenthe.
Our New Year here at The Cedar Journal has finally started and with a huge bang. As promised we headed to our scheduled escape from the yearly fireworks of New Years Eve. I visited the last of the 12 provinces on my Dutch “must do” list with this camping adventure to Drenthe.
With about everything except the kitchen sink, we loaded our VW Caddy and set out on our two hour drive across the country towards the German border.
The tulips are about three weeks early with the warm spell we had two weeks ago.
There are not many things at my age that I can say are totally new experiences. Yesterday was the exception…
From April until late October I can be sure to find a roadside stand along most of my bike routes. Most capture my attention to the point that I stop, look, and then fish through my pockets or purse for money. Usually I head home with more in my bike bags than when I started the ride.
