In this end of the year newsletter:
Veni vidi vici… I came, I saw, I conquered. Famous words of Julius Ceasar after a victory in 47 BC. Apart from the fact it alliterates nicely, the last word ‘vici’ sounds like the Dutch word ‘fietsie’ (spoken as ‘feet-see’) which is slang for small bicycle.
Many of you have had some battles against COVID19 in one way or another. Many have lost a lot this year. For the two of us, the losses were not that great: We were never this healthy and haven’t suffered under the measures from the government – apart from some first-world problems. On the other hand we do know a number of people who were affected by COVID19 directly and indirectly. Some are still suffering from the after-effects. A nasty fight for which there’s no end in sight for some. Let alone a victory.
Hereby we would like to voice our heart felt wish that 2021 will be a year of hope, recovery, health en above all love…
The header phote was made bij our bicycle friend Willemijn Lambert. The three of us cycled over the Via Romana for a weekend last September in Germany.
For a while it looked as if St. Olav had to wait a year, but by now the St. Olavs Way in Norway has been cycled and descibed. A lot of effort is going in to the Dutch route guide for making it ready to be published by spring 2021.
All information regarding the St. Olav’s Way in Norway can be found on the renewed website of Via Gaia (in English!)
I already referred to it in the previous text: the website of Via Gaia is renewed and it is translated in English as well (big thanks to Remy!). Because the the guide ‘Het Olavspad – Noorwegen’ is finished, all the information about the route can be found there with practical information, photo’s, noteworthy items….

Via Gaia is almost one year old (Januari 1st) and recently discovered that my profession has a name!
But lo and behold! My profession has a name! And here it comes: Virtual Assistant! Abreviated: VA.
I just hope the money isn’t virtual as well…

"Cycling is nothing more than sitting on your bum".
A while back I wrote a blog about the fact that I’m lazy in nature, not competative at all and sports are wasted on me. Huh? You might think. But really. Just read it here...
On closing for the the people wanting to travel again, who are suffering from awaysickness: it would seem that making travel plans can actually make you happy. By now we’re somewhere between 20 and 30 travel plans! It works. Really. We now hope that at least one plan can be made reality next year….
Former president Eisenhower said: “plans are nothing, planning is everything…”, but don’t agree!
Greetings, from Remy as well,
