Back in NL.

Gradually the weather changed for the better. When we reached Münster it was really hot, in the high thirties. Our last campsite in Germany was the worst until now. A big site full of caravans on small lots, completely stuffed with sheds, make shift verandas and stuff like that. Typically a site for long stay summer campers from the region. For us there was an open meadow in the full sun.
The next day we entered the Netherlands and found – to our surprise – the Villa Mondriaan in Winterswijk. Very well designed art centre on the spot of Mondriaan's youth, a worth while stop.

The campsite that evening was the opposite of the one before, a big, full, fully equipped and well organised recreation centre. Despite the crowds we had a good stay.
The next day we rode north in the pouring rain and had to stop at a B&B. The day after was beautiful again and we reached the beautiful and shining valley of river Vecht, where we put up our tent on a fresh meadow on the bank of the river. Awakening after a good night sleep was extra nice, as the weather wat at its best and so was Eveline, it was her 65th birthday. Lovely breakfast in the field we had!
Now we have reached our son's house, where the little one greeted us with a big smile and a show of her new skill: walking! While we were on our journey, she had decided to learn how to walk. Such a nice surprise.

Tomorrow we will head for Breda and conclude an interesting European tour of a good 1600 k.
