Almost ready for the off, Elefanttreffen 2016

Bienvenue en Belgique / Welkom in België

Bienvenue en Belgique / Welkom in België

De overgang van Luxemburg naar België merken we eigenlijk niet. Onze bestemming is Remouchamps. Het plenst van de regen als we er aankomen, dus dat wordt een binnen activiteit: de grotten bezoeken. Er worden hier al sinds 1912 rondleidingen gegeven. Het is een...
Italy, no bikes

Surgery required

Good news and Bad news….We are very happy that we flew back to Belgium to get my knee diagnosed. It turns out that it is serious and needs to be operated on. But, it’s a relief that it should be able to be ‘fixed’. It feels better than it...
