Where I stayed
Paula and Dries live in the village. They made us feel very welcome, kept the wine flowing and the food coming. They have two of the smartest dogs you could meet, Rusty and Bailey. Really really smart dogs.
So we had a great couple of nights and all of Sunday taking it easy and being chauffered around on a tour of the Drenthe region by Dries.The Assen race track is very close by so we went for a look - we miss experiencing the TT by a week, which is a mild shame but no biggie. It's a very rich green landscape, and Wezup's a lovely village with a completely new style of building to us
We stayed at the Hotel Hegen which has been going since 1834 in the same family. We can recommend it as a comfortable and pleasant place.
We're wrapt that Paula and Dries welcomed us while wearing wooden shoes. We thought that was great even though it's pretty normal for them.
They're also fellow bikers so we had plenty in common to kick the conversation off. A lot of fun.
So thanks Paula and Dries, and we hope to catch up with you again. We headed for Amsterdam by riding the long way there - via Holland's Afsluitdijk, a pretty amazing experience.
