Packing and pranking Uncle Gery!

The moving truck is coming tomorrow so we’re nearly all packed and ready to go, but we couldn’t leave without making Uncle Gery laugh.

Over the past couple of years we’ve shared a garage with Jose and Uncle Gery and there’s been a running joke about how protective Uncle Gery is of his bike… No one is allowed to touch it! So we decided to protect it for him…

Uncle Gery's bike!

He will be chuckling about this for a long time! He plans to cycle from Rome to Brussels soon and he will be doing a detour to visit us in Milan. We wish him well on the crazy Italian roads.


Once the truck has been, we will spend one last night on Nocturne before leaving for Milan. It’s starting to feel real now.

Bisous, Bailey

  3. You shall buy to Uncle Gery a fluorescent jacket… you’re right, Italy isn’t a piece of cake to travel by bike! :-)claudine


  4. what a funny prank to pull and it’s not even April Fool’s day yet but with the move coming, you had to move it up a bit. yes once thing are all packed and the movers come, it does indeed seem more real.

    Best of luck that the move goes smoothly. Wishing Uncle Gery good luck & safe biking!
