For full trip index click HERE, and for all photos from trip click HERE Chilling at Moissac we looked at the map and checked our route and reckon we only have 5 cycling days till we hit the med!  Campsites seem to be spread out a bit so the daily distance is what it has […]

For full trip index click HERE, and for all photos from trip click HERE So, after needing a rest due to sore knees, then Mel not having her wedding and engagement ring, what can you do?  We were meeting friends from the UK in Salles but they were miles away and not contactable and no […]

For full trip index click HERE, and for all photos from trip click HERE As expected we both awoke with aches and pains and decided on an easier day at a slower pace which seemed to work ok and we survived 38 miles. Funny how 38 miles is now seen as short!  But the paths […]
