This trip was postponed twice! First because we bought a house in 2019. Then all travelling had to be cancelled in March 2020 due to the Corona virus situation. This setback has also brought positive outcomes to our lives. We have explored the Netherlands with new refreshing eyes and encouraged us to try new ways of experiencing tourism.
So here we are, ready to fly back from LA to Amsterdam. We packed the bikes already in San Francisco, and repacked them again (with extra bubble wrap) yesterday at Lluismi's (Alba's brother) place. If it were up to me (Jochem), I would keep on cycling to Mexico City and beyond, but alas. Maybe some other day.
The past week felt
San Francisco! We actually made it! It took some sweat and tears (but mostly smiles fortunately), but we got there. On a beautiful Saturday, we finally crossed the Golden Gate. Curious what it's like to cycle across this famous bridge? Check out the video below!
