When I set off people warned me of the dangers of the road, Now, almost two weeks and 700 km later I can report the following list:
- One puncture, outside Cork
- One lens lost from my cycling glasses, replaced in St, Nazaire
- Broken power lead to my tablet, This is the most annoying, it is not a standard USB plug so it as soon as the last of the charge expires I will be hauling useless electronics around, I am posting from a hosts laptop at the moment but the French keyboard layout is difficult to adjust to
- Yesterday I dropped the camera and it no longer switches on, Not a huge loss, I still have one on the smartphone but it is not that easy to use, Might buy a cheapo one when I come across them,
As you can see problems are minor, bike is perfect and the body is doing well , Today as a rest day in La Rochelle was most welcome though,
I want to get to Spain and start the Camino proper by mid week, It has taken me a week to cycle across half France so I will take a few trains to the Spanish border Consider France as an extended training spin!
