Party time in Netherlands!!

Yes, it’s party time for us in Netherlands where we have a great time visiting our friends in Beuningen and then Erp! We are welcomed back at Camping Du Muk for a short stop and once again appreciate their excellent hospitality.
Jan, Nettie and Maaike pick us up and take us to a delicious smorgasbord Asian meal!

We also enjoy traditional apple cake with them on our morning tour of the district – and of course laughs as well!

Nearby in the small village of Erp we are reunited with friends Carla and Sjaak  who we met last year on the Rhine River cruise! We ride our bikes in the rain to their house to celebrate Carla’s birthday, joining their family celebrations and meeting their new beautiful little grand-daughter, Bobbi!!
