    I've just come back at home from one of my best holidays....
    I've been ten days in Holland, by unicycle, and I've met mr. Klaas Bil,
    I've ridden with him and I've slept at his home!
    I've put some pics in my gallery:


    But let's start from the beginning...
    Me and a friend of mine had decided to do a trip in Holland, by
    unicycle, and one day I've checked unicyclist.com to find some hints.
    There was already a thread about unicyling in holland, and
    there I put my questions, and there everything begun....
    Klaas answered me with personal message, and from that we've started to
    speak about our idea.
    After some emails, we went in Holland!
    With us there were also 2 girls (they rode b*kes).
    We did, by uni, Amsterdam-Haarlem, Haarlem-Leiden, Leiden-Den Haag, then
    again Leiden-Zoetermeer, (this one with Klaas). Then we went to Gouda,
    Utrecht, Amsterdam, but by b*ke and by train, cause my friend was
    Everything has gone in the best way!
    We rode more or less 15 km everyday, with big backpacks on our shoulders

    I've been waiting patiently till giocologgi would start this thread as
    he said he would. It was a real good experience. Giocologgi and his
    friends turned out to be very nice people and (the two males) good
    unicyclists. Both also juggled very very well and taught Jorga and me
    some nice tricks to try. We also enjoyed the authentic Italian meal
    (maccheroni a la Genovese if I got that right) that they cooked for
    all eight of us (the four of them and my family).

    They did the whole trip on their 24" unicycles and two rented bikes
    while I brought my 29er for the day we did together in the nicest
    spring weather imaginable. But we switched unis a lot, I ended up
    riding less than half the distance on my own uni.

    Giocologgi and friends, you're always more than welcome to come back -
    but you knew that.

    be sure to remove the saddle and simply sit on the seat post. this is far more comfortable - tennisgh22 on the comfort of Savage unis

    All of that text was apparently added with the 'edit' button and it
    didn't make it to the newsgroup. (I noticed only because I checked
    unicyclists.com from work (broadband) to download the photos.) So, my
    remark about the 24 vs 29 difference was covered by giocologgi without
    me knowing it.

    Unicyclists are the best! Meet them if you can!

    Well, sorry for the delay, but I've waited a various things:
    the print of the picture, then the scan of them (done by a friend of
    mine), then he send them to me...

    Again, thank you
