Netherlands, Veghel, 15 – 21 October 2016

Upto this point in time I was expecting my bike to arrive in Hamburg mid October and had booked my flights accordingly. From Shiraz to Dusseldorf, visit friends in the Netherlands and then a train to Hamburg to pick up my bike. BUT while waiting at Shiraz airport for my flight I got an email from the shipping agent that my bike would only be available for pickup at Hamburg in mid November which means I had a month to kill. After some research into flights to various countries (I had to get out of the EU as I am only allowed 3 months in the Schengen area) and a few quick messages I booked a return flight to New York.

I now had a week of taking it easy with friends in Veghel and doing nothing after months of non-stop travel.

    O my goodness – a month is quite a length of time to kill, but what a wonderful opportunity you had! I am so pleased you enjoyed an ‘added experience’ , brrrrilliant! 😀 A nuisance initially, but turning out to be great! Yay!
