Like the previous year, my housemate, Cynthia, motivated me to do this bicycle trip. The big difference this time was that I had had knee surgery 5 months earlier. My physiotherapy had been progressing well so that I felt able to attempt this tour. Everything went well. Only in Sandy I had to take an unplanned pause, which was rather for lack of training rather than knee problems, though. We finished a bit slower than the year before, but nonetheless it was a big success for my recovery.
