After the cruise, Jan, our friend from Beuningen, kindly collected us from Nijmegen train station and we enjoyed lunch at home with Netty and Maaijke too.
Come and join us on the MS Allegro! Cruising with our lovely friends from Erp (The Netherlands) for 7 days has been relaxing and lots of fun.
Departing from Rotterdam on a sunny afternoon we begin our journey along canals with may locks, passing numerous cargo ships and industry on the banks, and visiting six towns along the way.
Entering the Netherlands the landscape changes noticeably with many varied livestock enjoying the green pastures. . . . . It’s as “pretty as a picture”. !!!!! Cows wandering around the windmills and the pigs definitely look happy and contently muddy!!
What’s this falling from the skies???..? Rain!!! We’re out of here!! . . . . . The beauty of having a motorhome we can “up & go” at the drop of a hat! The weather is looking great a few 100km north, Bruce agrees so we follow the sun!! Still in the bottom 1/3 of Germany (Bavaria) we explore more interesting places and artwork!
Leaving Bavaria, we have a date with Team Black Forest, Martin and Edith, our riding mates from Tour de Donau, at their home town of Baden-Baden (in the Black Forest). Quote from Lonely Planet travel guide: “So nice that you have to name it twice!!”
