An uneventful flight that was delayed by 60 minutes by weather in Chicago. Other flights had been delayed before, so our flight was completely full. Sitting behind me were folks from a tour group. They were going to see Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris and London…all in one week! Now just six days because they had been delayed by a day.
Luggage was slow to arrive, but bike and all gear arrived in good condition. At Amsterdam I was met by Mickey. Mickey is planning to cycle across Eurasia as well. Leaving Amsterdam a little later and then joining together from St Petersburg. We left bike in the box, and took the train and metro to Mickey’s place.
In the afternoon I put the bike together and we bicycled to my Oom (Uncle) Gerard. Along the way we took an official start photo shown above left. A nice meal in Amsterdam before turning in early for the night.
