Tomorrow, we leave for Oslo. After visiting family for a few days, we intend to cycle south and west towards Barcelona. Major sections and stops will likely be:
- Romantic Road
- Freiburg im Breisgau
- The Dordogne
- La Vélodyssée (South of Bordeaux)
Chris would like to attend the opening of the new Creative Arts building at Canterbury University in England on October 30th, and has a tentative plan to visit old university friends. In late October from wherever we find ourselves, we’ll travel by train back to the Channel with our bikes hanging on hooks. Research shows this as feasible, as long as we start in France. It doesn’t work in Spain. However, Barcelona – should we have made it there – is only a two day ride from the French border. From England, we’ll travel back to Oslo by boat-train-boat: Harwich-Hook of Holland-Copenhagen-Oslo. We like trains and boats, and we have time.
Off we go.
