Quick post from the road. I picked up my bike from Schipol and after an anxiety ridden exit from the airport (must be the only place in NL where you can’t cycle) I started toward Utrecht. I had to cover 80 miles today to make up for the lost time, but they flew by on paths along pastures with blase cows and gregarious sheep. This country is already even more beautiful than I imagined.
Being on the road makes me a happy camper. But waking up at 4am every day courtesy of jet lag doesn’t. We can’t have it all!
