3. Belgium and Holland

First scary experiences on the "wrong" side of the road...

rain

We met some Dutch motorcyclists whilst waiting for the ferry on the Dover side. Wonderful group and the first of many positive meetings and friendships with the Dutch along the way. Anyway the sort of took us under their wings and we rode with them through Belgium and into Holland. This gave us a chance to get a feel for riding on the right hand side of the road. Roundabouts were still a mind bender though! we really enjoyed Holland and its people.

1. Preparations

the hard yards...

sunny 13 °C

Preparing for a bike trip through 18 countries over 3 months was the most organising I have ever done. Still with only 1 visa required (Russia) it could have been worse. We got things done with about an hour or 2 to spare...

Bella was crated at Qantas in Melbourne in a Suzuki V-Strom crate obtained from a dealer but it still took us about 5 hours to get it ready for the flight. It cost $2500 to get her to London.
