From Holland with Love, day 12: Flight with Jeroen

My own passion for flying, for about 15 years just before moving to Down Under, most certainly infected my friend Jeroen as well. He bought his own plane and still flies a lot. Today he took me for a flight over Holland in his twin seater. The weather was not perfect, but that makes it even better. I loved every second of it and thank Jeroen profoundly for this great trip.
