This will be one of the last blogs we do. We now are nearly at the end of our stay in Europe. We had a wonderful time and seen again that much, it is hard to remember but lucky we have our blogs, photos and videos. We had such a nice time at Boppard, so much to see and so much traffic on the Rhine that keeps you looking. We were sorry to leave and went to Garderen in Holland, also a wonderful place. We never stayed on the Veluwe so this time we made an effort to see some of the things, like Lelystad and the Open Air museum in Arnhem. We visited both of them.

After a good breakfast we left Ahrweiler and went further north direction Holland We landed in a little place called Tubbergen. It is in Twente, close to Hengelo, where I spent the first twelve of so years of my live. Up to a certain point the GPR worked well and we enjoyed the route it had set out for us.
