Vespizzare!Yesterday I went flying with my Vespa. Ok, I can hear you thinking now “Yes pull the other one Leendert.” but it’s true, I really went flying albeit very shortly and at a low altitude.

There was this bridge, away in the fields. I was doing a cool 38mph but didn’t see that bridge on time so I went flying with my Vespa, both wheels at least 2 feet from the ground and I landed on the other side of the bridge.

Luckily for me it went down there so I didn’t just ‘drop from the air’ but like in those stunt shows I went down on the slope, not a soft landing but better than on flat ground. I consider myself so lucky I wasn’t hurt.

Last time I did such a thing I was 16 and I did it on purpose. Today I have sore muscles all over my body and I feel like I’m 80.



Leendert van Gemeren

Dit ben ik, Leendert. Ik ben een beetje ouderwets en houd van dingen die geweest zijn, bijvoorbeeld oude Engelse series op TV zoals All Creatures Great And Small, mechanische horloges, bifocale brillen en oude langspeelplaten. Ik houd niet van moderne dingen en werk regelmatig aan een ouderwetse modelspoorbaan. Ik volg Jezus en schrijf mijn gedichten soms ook over Hem maar ik schrijf ook verhalen over het leven. Excentriek. Op feestjes ben ik vaak te vinden in de keuken.

This is me, Leendert. I am a little bit old-fashioned and I love things from the past, old series like All Creatures Great And Small, mechanical wristwatches, bi-focal glasses and vinyl records for example. I am not keen on modern things and I often work on this old style model railway. I follow Jesus and sometimes write a poem about Him but I also write about my life. Eccentric. You can often find me in the kitchen at parties.
