Joost (yoost) and Marion Linders, from The Netherlands, just make me smile. We crossed paths eight times between the Interurban Trail in Seattle and lunch in Mendocino, CA.
When Murray and I met them in Seattle, I said, “You don’t have hills in The Netherlands!”
“Yes, we do,” said Joost.”We have one.” 🙂
They are riding from Seattle to San Francisco and have a flight home on Oct. 6. They have cycled a lot in Europe- often into France or Germany.
On several occasions I was having lunch in a cafe, when I heard, “David!!!!” And it was Joost, who’d seen my bike and knew I was there.
I’m pretty sure we’ll go see them in The Netherlands. Right, Jenny?
