It's been a week and a half now since pulling up stumps on my bicycle trip, seems that this place will be my destination for the near future until I get on my feet. I don't recommend moving country too often, way too much hassle 😄
Next step, try to get registered so I can find a job.. let's see how that goes.
It's been good to have some rest and let the body recover. So I thought I would share some of the data I recorded from the journey... As follows:
27 cycle days
12 rest days
118h 47min riding time
Average km per day = 58.74km
Average riding hours per day = just under 5 hours
One hell of a journey to say the least!
To be honest it went very quick, concentration and planning through each day just made it go in a flash. Though I must say.. there were definitely times where I wanted to give up because of different circumstances, and other moments where the body was just pleading with me to stop... particularly those long days. But my desire to achieve what I've set out to do in Europe keeps me going, not just this cycling trip but future goals. I'm meant to be here to continue my story.
But for me.. the people I met, seeing family and friends again and the new cities I've witnessed.. it's an accomplishment of a different nature that I'm proud to have completed. Very grateful to the people who helped me along all the way too, couldn't have done it without your support 😊
Cheers to more types of adventures in the future! 🍻
