Een Korte Trip Naar het land van de Fietsen.


A Short Trip to the Land of Bicycles. P. 1 😜

Bergen aan Zee

Let’s now behold a view of that short escape into the windy North Sea but beautiful landscape. I admit I’m a complete summer lover, and since I don’t have enough of it in Germany, I’d like to enjoy it on vacation. Of course, our purse had a hunger strike this year and didn’t want to fulfil our wishes. Therefore, we decided to get into the neighbour Holland. (Even though it wasn’t as cheaper as one might wish!)

I like Holland and the Dutch people, as I might mention before. Although this time, the aim was not to play some dumb things but to ride bicycles to make something good for the body. However, I have to confess that I was unsure a bit if I could get on the bike without panic! I hadn’t ridden any for more than fifteen years, and it’s a long time. But, as we know, In this case, learning is learned! I have had no problem; I rode like a master from the first minute.

The bulge below my stomach is my fanny pack, nothing else. πŸ˜πŸ˜‰

Anyway, we rode for three days, about a hundred kilometres (well, we are not the youngest anymore!). It was very windy sometimes, though it was not the problem, the wind just was too cold. Indeed we were lucky that the weather was not getting worse; it didn’t rain so much, just about one evening, and we had two days of sunny (almost) warm temperature.

And the architecture is fascinating;

Daar ga je en bedankt! πŸ™πŸ₯° Of course, this must have a second part with some nice pics, including Mr Vincent van Gogh. βœŒπŸ’–

  1. Thank you Aladin for turning your bike into a bike made for many, as we toured Holland with you! Wonderful photos! Thank you for sharing them all with us. We love cycling too especially along the coast where we live. Yes, it’s impossible to forget how to ride once learnt. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend. Love and light, Deborah.

    You’re getting around this summer, my friend. I have never been to Holland, but would love to see the spring flowers there and share a beer. You look born to ride, and I like the touch of the fanny/belly pack. Beautiful photos!

    • Your kind words made my day, my lovely Elaine. So it’s when one like me is so lucky to have such an active wife. 🀣
      Holland is a beautiful country with beautiful people and flowers. I will make another report about this trip. And the fanny bag has a story which I will tell one day. Thank you my friend. Blessing πŸ₯°πŸ’–

  3. In America we use a phrase / idiom – “it’s just like riding a bike” This you say to a person when you want to assure him he will be able to remember any skill, even if he has not practiced it in many years! So, you prove this idiom to be very true!πŸ‘
