Dutch cyclists

The lovely Dutch cyclists who arrived less than an hour after we put a Happy Coulson sign at the end of our road!

These guys have cycled all the way from Holland and are following the Camino Santiago over the Pyrénées and into Spain. They arrived with us on Day 16, 1600kms in and averaging 100kms per day.

The bikers from Venray Holland say: “We are happy to stay in this comfortable B&B with Chris and Kate. We enjoyed an perfect dinner and hospetality. We recommend this place to other Caminopilgrims. Nice place to be and friendly prices.”
You can check out their blog here. Thanks to Caroline Dijkstra for the translation:
“It is about time to find a place to sleep but we expected it was going to be difficult and we were right! There should be enough sleeping possibilities in Mauborguet but the camping ground is closed and Chemin de St. Jaques is way above our budget. So that means back on the bike and after 100km we discover Happy Coulsons in Lahitte-Toupiere with a variety of sleeping places (www.happycoulson.com). After 10 days we finally sleep on a normal mattress and enjoy heating and wifi. Boeuf Bourguignon is cooked for us with cheese, red wine and a cup of coffee at the end. Clothes are being washed so that we can have a clean and refreshed start tomorrow. Our English hosts are very enthusiastic and helpful! What is breakfast going to be tomorrow: English Breakfast???” It wasn’t. Hope they weren’t too disappointed…
