We had a good “summer of recovery”. Now we have said goodbye to neighbours, friends and family. Our house is spic and span and we emptied some wardrobes, so that the new temporary inhabitants will feel OK. We are reading our beloved newspaper NRC for the last time and we have nothing more to do than wait for tomorrow morning 07.00 hrs for a taxi mini-van to pick us up and take us to Schiphol airport. Then, after 27 hours, we hope to make a safe landing in Cairns, Queensland, Australia, where we will be picked up by our new warmshowers hosts. They have already biked a large part of the route we want to do, so there will be a lot of information exchanging. All in all, we're back on our wheels again.
