A photographic journey telling the story of our tours to date.

Summer 2015 – Rotterdam to Northern Spain  12 Weeks, 3000 Km.

Our first cycle tour after I retired. We set off from our daughter Tavia’s house in Rotterdam to follow rivers south. This would take us along the Dutch canals to the River Meuse in Belgium, then along that river to Verdun. We would then cross to the Moselle and follow that to the Rhine.

The Rhine would take us to the Swiss border and we would continue south through Switzerland and Italy to the Liguarian Coast. Back into France and finally to Barcelona.
