We left the German Treffen and went to our friends Dirk and Hetty's house in Holland
and dropped off about half of the load in the trailer. We had souvenirs from as
far back as Belgium, two days after we had left their house in March, and it is now
the end of May and 12,000 km. (7,500 miles) later.
We then headed for Nordkapp (North Cape), Norway. The scenic route. It led us through
some small roads in northwestern Germany where the Rhododendrons were almost as tall
as a house. There were probably 50 km. of flowers, both wild and cultivated and
all in bloom. These flowers, the flat ground of the Low Countries and views of huge
wind turbines brought us toDenmark in two days.
