before heading to the Netherlands to see the bridge from Arnhem you (may) know from the movie "A Bridge Too Far"

Luck us, one museum was still open https://www.arnhemsoorlogsmuseum.com/ and we could see their amazing collection like

Hitlers sofa!

Another place I want to see was "Hotel Hartenstein" https://www.airbornemuseum.nl/de/home?g ... UREALw_wcB, where the British troops had their HQ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airborne_ ... enstein%27.

Some of you may have already heard, if not, or, are not familiar with actor, Ben Cross, who was a prolific English actor, passed away suddenly. He completed his final film before his illness took him. He made his film debut in A Bridge too Far and went on to star in many films, TV movies, and shows.

I love these bike adventures! Can’t wait until the leg heals up and can load up and go for a cruise. Definitely some great motivation for adventure. Danke!
All the best, Gents.

Sep 4th we start for another 3 days 125km bike-hike ("donkey trail"). Going by train 2.5hrs north before driving all the way back criss-cross the "Spessart" woods.
