Friday evening I asked the man at the reception for a normal place to eat. The same question I asked my neighbours at the campsite and they said the same place, Tommenmolen. So I went there and is was a bit more fancy then I thought 🙂 Just showered, a bit wild hair, some fjallraven clothes, which are good but not for a place like that. Every place but one was already reserved, so I took the one. At this time I was the subject of a joke around the employees, which I understood 🙂
To make it even weirder, my neighbours from the campsite also entered and they said to them that I had taken the last spot 🙂 I’m good with making friends!
The second night in the tent was not a good one. There was a street light quite close to me and there were a lot of noises. I prob woke up like 5 times. Started cycling in the morning without a lot of energy. Most of the cycling paths are not that good in Belgium. Unfortunately with the bad roads and not a lot of concentration I tumbled of my bike, not a big crash but enough that my muscles hurt badly because of force when falling on the ground. I cycled on but my muscles felt bad.
I’ve fallen before so I knew that the next day would be the worst so it was decision time, what to do. In the end I opted for going home. The other option was to book a few nights in a hotel, but that didn’t seem like a fun idea. I was close to a place called Tubekes. After riding there I could catch a train to Brussels and from there to Breda and back to Nijmegen.
Waking up this morning in my own bed, very sore muscles it was the right choice for now. But my vacation just started! This morning I walked to Doppio, a coffeeshop to have some breakfast and lunch and writing this post with some good coffee.
It will take a couple of days to feel better, but there is still enough time to go an adventure!
