Since the initial travels we have made repeat visits to France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Scotland as well as to Luxembourg and Jersey. Several of these were for the Semaine Federale or the International Tandem Rallies. More about these later.
Our recent trip to the The Netherlands, to give it it’s proper name, was to attend the 2016 International Tandem Rally, but we went there early to visit other areas as well. The first area we visited was south east of Nijmegen near Groesbeek which turned out to be a very interesting place in that it was one of the main areas used for the “Operation Market Garden” airborne landings. There are many display boards all over about this and they have an annual four day walk in celebration of the liberation. Also known as Little Switzerland due to the hilly terrain. The border with Germany was very close so we visited parts of it as well.
