Is it possible to have fun on vacation and maintain your fitness level?
Mike and I are currently on a week-long bicycle/barge tour in the Netherlands. We sleep on the barge at night, and during the day ride hybrid bicycles 30-40 miles to our next destination. A local tour guide plans out the route, with stops along the way to learn about historical sites.
Not only are we biking every day, but we’re also enjoying 3 daily meals of healthy food: dense whole grain breads, fresh fruit, and seasonal vegetables. There’s no snacking unless we choose to indulge in a pastry or ice cream during one of our stops, and our primary beverage is water.
We’re having a wonderful time learning about the Netherlands, interacting with the 20 other people in our tour group, and traveling along the fantastic Dutch bike lanes.
