Waking up here in Edirne after two amazing restitution days. We’ve spent them just as you should. We’re trying to motivate us for the longest distance for my mother. Our goal is 100Km to Kirklareli.
We’re ready for some boarder crossings again. Imagine that, I’ll cycle into country nr 19 and 20 out of 20 of my trip today. The only thing remaining after todays ride is some kilometers in Turkey and Bulgaria. We are ready for some restitution days in Edirne.
We’re ready for a night at a vineyard. Imagine that, we’re gonna sleep there and drink their homemade wine. I’m so excited. What If I’ll be disappointed, what if this is just a….Nothing? It’s about time to start cycling from this small town we are situated in now, in the middle of nowhere. Or in […]
We woke up in Zlatograd around 9:10. The alarm didn’t go off and we were a bit shocked since we planned to wake up earlier. Our plan today is to cycle about 90Km and are prepared for that. Sun is shining and life is good, what a morning!
We’re ready for my moms first day. She’s really excited. Our plan today is to cycle 55Km from Smolyan to Zlatograd. How will she react to the bulgarian traffic, and how will it be for her to cycle with the trailer?
Finally the day is here, I’m gonna cycle to Smolyan to meet my mother. She’s ready to cycle with me to the sea side of Bulgaria. I just have to climb a few mountains first, I’m climbing my way up to 1700 meters above sea level today.
The sun is shining and I’m ready for a new day on the bike! I know that there will be climbs almost the whole day. Let’s just hope my body reacts well and that I will have a good day on the road.
I had a nice evening in Negotin. I spent my evening at the restaurant and had a skype conversation with my beautiful Lillian and my family. I’m preparing myself for a day with a small taste of the climbs that will come.
I’m wondering how my legs will be after yesterdays strenght test against the wind. My hope is to be able to reach Kladovo today. Everything depends on the roads, my legs and the ferry over the Danube.
Yesterday was a mixed day. I felt strong, I had energy all the way, but it was a challenge since it was difficult to get a hold of food and because of the head wind. I’ve checked the weather forecast which reports much stronger wind against me today….Not sure if I’m prepared.
