A Travellerspoint blog

First night in Europe

overcast 12 °C
View Not The Italy Tour 2015 on Eric_The_Viking's travel map.

Arriving on time (17:15 local) in Hook of Holland, joined the queues to show our passports and we were on our way, why is it you always feel guilty when speaking to the border guard! Bikes now diverting in all different directions on leaving the port. It was a little choppy across the North Sea in places, boat wasn't to busy but glad that's behind us now.

Got the route written down in the tank bag, but the Sat Nav made easy work of finding the right roads and away, around Rotterdam and headed South East on the motorway. Quite busy with rush hour traffic.

Made it to The Campinile Hotel in Den Bosch by 19:00 hrs. Shower & food before a good nights rest. Sooty a bit under the weather tonight, hopefully ok by breakfast and once she's had something to eat.

Total distance so far 112km.

But of route planning for tomorrow before calling it a day.

Not heard from our biker buddies travelling from Calais but hopefully they're well on the way south and camped up somewhere warm & dry for the night.
