World Cup Madness

Everything here is House of Orange-Nassau ORANGE for the World Cup. I collected three stamps at the Albert Heijn and got this lovely Wuppie for just €2.49! What a bargain.

Even though our France trip has fallen through, Simon and I continue to train. We're hoping to do a couple of weekend trips to Belgium and Germany later in the summer.

Yesterday we rode east-northeast going past the Kager Plassen and and turning back somewhere along the Westeinder Plassen.

Distance: 27 miles
Time: 1 hour, 26 minutes
Average speed: 19 m.p.h.

Today we did a quick loop out to Katwijk, through the dunes, and back through Wassenaar.

Distance: 20 miles
Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
Average speed: 17 m.p.h.
