Where: Yacht (Paleros) Greece
Distance: 3,500 km
Two days ago I was cycling along the road singing to myself when two other cyclists rode up next to me and startled me.
Both Sebastian and Grant are cycling from the top of Scotland to South Africa. A journey of 25,000 km. It makes my ride look tiny. You can check out their site at http://www.cyclenorthsouth.co.za/
The picture is one of us catching a lift under the ocean. We starting riding into the tunnel but we were stopped by the tunnel guard. We all feared having to take a 150 km detour but he ended up being super friendly and gave us a lift through the tunnel which was great.
That night we all slept on the beach which was nice. A very impressive thunder storm rolled in and reminded me of how small I was.
After a good rest we had a 70 km cycle to get to the sea port where Sebastian and Grant had a connection who was putting them up on a 48 ft yacht for a few days. They invited me to stay with them so I have happily joined them on the boat which has been great. The three of us having been enjoying sharing war stories, swimming and just taking it all in. This Friday I will arrive in Athens. Only 250 km remaining to cycle. Yipeee.
