A Postcard From Asperen, Gelderland, Netherlands - 9th June 2018

Nosher's over in Asperen, in the Netherlands, for old school-friend Martin's 50th birthday, along with half of New Milton - it's quite odd being in deepest rural Netherlands talking to loads of people about Arnewood School and suchlike. Before the do, Nosher and Hamish - who's also there after an overnight ferry trip from Hull - explore the town for a bit. The day before, Nosher, The Boy Phil, Gaz and Marticle are off for a high-speed 24-ish mile ride out to Tibenham, and back via Burston.
