Peace Out

6 May

After blathering about it incessantly, Trena and I are finally leaving today for our bicycle trip to the Netherlands.  There isn’t internet on board the barge so I’m not bringing my netbook. So, no blogging while I’m gone. You’ll just have to suffer a barage of posts  of my nattering on about the daily minutiae of biking through the Netherlands when I get back.

I sold my pink and black Trek and bought this one last month

I’m packing two skirts, four tops and traveling in jeans. Between that, my rain gear, my beauty products and other technology — I’ve got a packed suitcase. In addition, there are some things I’ve ordered online that I’m picking up in the Netherlands. This does not compare favorably with my disciplined bestie. LOL. I’m hearing reports of beautiful weather and just three days of scattered showers.

I do plan to meet up with some Euroean bloggers and am plotting to clean out Kantje Boord while in Amsterdam. Oh, and track down some new-to-me notions recommended by Els.

Hopefully, my consumption of cheese and Belgian frites will be balanced by pedaling 30 miles a day.

See you when I get back!

    Sounds like a wonderful trip. I’m trusting you’ll be testing the Belgian ales for us too!

    Nice looking bicycle…you are reminding me that I need to get one.

    Hey, are you still liking nail polish?

    Have fun, fun, and more fun! Thank you for giving me the idea for a bike riding vacation next year. Please take a million picture at Kantje Boord. I would love to shop there once I get a bra pattern that works for me. Enjoy your trip :)

    (Longtime lurker here): Have a great trip! My family hails from Fryslan (province in the NL’s north) and I just love the whole country. And those patat are to die for. I can’t get enough of the fries there. Enjoy and I look forward to your posts when you return.

    OMG, I can’t believe you sold your pink bicycle! Your trip sounds just delightful and I know you’ll have a delightful time. I’m heading to Amsterdam on business next month, so will be most interested to hear your reviews of that city!

    Have a great trip!

    Have a great trip, and here’s another vote for helmets for the two of you (left this on Trena’s blog, too) . . . Mr. Noile has scars on his face and arms from a slow-speed bike crash many years ago. Happily, his brain was unaffected. Don’t go risking yours!
