Winding Routes

A little over a year ago I set up a Dutch website with safe routes for people with a moped car, which is Winding Routes if you translate it into English and it’s based on the Winding Routes setting in the TomTom satnav. There’s loads of information and news about moped cars on it too. You can read more about it in English on the About page at the website.

Some time ago my website got noticed by an editor and she published a little article about my website in a local magazine which was picked up by the Dutch version of AA and they published a whole page about it in their magazine (one million copies monthly). This drew the attention of a regional news paper and they published an entire page about it and then the TV got hold of a copy of that paper and they called me asking me if I wanted to be in the news. So who knows what’s next, talk show appearances? I’m getting famous apparently.


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.
