Richard, congratulations on your wonderful achievement, if I could make just one tiny suggestion, go to Amsterdam on the plane.
There is so much to see and do you would be ill advised to rush it, go to Keukenhof next year, it'll still be there waiting for you.
Just chill out and make some fine memories every day, if you are like fish you would do well to make friends in Castletownbere with the fishermen and stock up your freezer.
p.s Try the Tullamore Dew Irish whisky, you'll love
Above all enjoy every moment.
Thanks for the suggestions.
I do need some Irish whiskey.
You know, I did live in the Netherlands among other places.
Julie and I did a bike trip that ended at keukenhof.
I'm already planning my spring and summer cruise.
Great info on the Kiel Canal today on Cruiser Forum. I'm guessing we'll be there in May.
