Europe (Round 2)

After our trip from the top to the bottom of  Britain we head back to France via ferry across the channel.  The plan is to ride from Cherbourg down to Barcelona, which will likely be our stopping point for this extended break.

UK (John O’Groats to Land’s End)

Update  – well, the weather has gotten the best of us and after days of rain and bad weather forecast for the road ahead we have modified the plan and are now headed to Paris for a short break before heading to the US for a visit with family, after which we will head back to Sydney and ‘real’ life.

    I haven’t been as dilligent in keeping up with your bolg over the past month as I should have been, but what an adventure you had!

    It didn’t work out that I could visit your friends Pete & Inge, but thanks for putting them in touch with me anyway. Nevada was stunningly beautiful, if a little daunting.

    It seems that those Clamonts served you well?

    As for settling back into reality, I’m not sure it is at all totally possible. I still live vicariously by reading other’s touring journals, and on forums, I offer advice or suggestions (for whatever it’s worth) when it is sought.

    Best regards.
    Dennis
