I can imagine you are very impatient to hear about the adventures
of our "Euro-biker" Europafietser in Dutch (OK,
this is your first Dutch lesson!).
For the time being, we (his family) can only write you a small
resumé of the last few days. Ewan hasnt yet been
able to write anything on the Internet, but could just spare
us a few lines on a postcard and the odd telephone call.
So after weeks of poor weather, on a bright and not too chilly
morning family, friends, our Lord Mayor and parish priest
gathered together at the Lubbeek scouts' locals.
A cup of coffee and a sandwich was maybe just what the scouts
needed after a very short rest following their wild!? party
which had probably ended only a few hours beforehand.
Luckily Ewan had left the party at a decent hour, wearing
the super T-shirt the scouts had embellished by their signatures
and the text " Ewan do your best and your legs will do
the rest!" After an obligatory photo session and a small
speech Ewan set off.
"See you at the end of October" he shouted and off
he went surrounded by the cheering friends and relatives.
First stop that night was Dinant
This week our cyclist made his way through the French Champaign
region Cheers! - and leaving behind The French "Massif
Central" he is heading for the Mediterranean. A bit difficult
to find any campsite that was open, so I presume he had to
use all his charm to find a comfy bed!
More about this next week!
