After days of leisure and rest it was Gareth our South African friend who planted the seed to go and visit the old city of Hampi, only a day’s trip away from Agonda. We were interested in a new ascapade and this Unesco World Heritage Site looked like a magic trip into India’s history. Of course we took the train!
Traveling overland from The Netherlands to New Zealand Michele and I, Ruud, met in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal in 1986. She was on her way from Australia to England. One year later we met again in Amsterdam, 2 years later we married and now, 33 years later, we were traveling on our bicycles in India after we left The Netherlands 7 months ago but due to the Covid-19 virus we had to return home. The third of August we left again for the south of France cycling along the Atlantic coast.
