We left Holten by 10:00am this morning and rode through Rijseen, Borne, Oldenzaal, De Lutte, and then crossed the border near Guildehuis. After Bad Badthium I got us on some round about wrong road through Ohne but we finally made it to Rheine at about 6:00pm.
We did well to have an early lunch and to eat as much as we had. We're learning to eat before we are hungry to avoid "bonking".
Lauren found us a warm shower host who after feeding us, letting us set up our tent in his yard, helping us buy our train tickets to Berlin, and serving us plenty of beer, showed us a series of PowerPoint slide shows of his bike tours all over the world. We were thrilled by his pictures of his pilgrimage to Santiago. He has been all over. This is the first time I've used the warm showers network and I'm really looking forward to continuing with the opportunity to meet people and know them in their own space.
