Day 39

Nice little bike ride. Sometimes it’s a bit shorter, actually too short, but always takes a bit of planning with the camp grounds. Yesterday, rest day. It was simply raining too much. Glad that I did this, I don’t need to torture myself. Going up north now, direction Tours.

Roads here are simply beautiful. Again some little hills, nothing wild. And vineyards, vineyards, vineyards. And the flowers are coming out for real, spring is coming.

Day 40

By now I'm a camping pro. I do have my routine and can set up everything super quick. No more chaos in the tent. But it still can get cold. At least for me. 3 degrees is not exactly warm. I do have a layering concept on the upper body that I use day and night. @falke undershirt, @rapha merino turtleneck, @everlane jeans shirt, @akindofguise wool pullunder, a @snowpeak_official down jacket and a huge @babaa wool sweater. I think I cracked it for that weather. And yes. @manfantastic is for years my inspiration for layering. They had a fantastic editorial where they were just showing underarms and hands with different layers. That's what I'm aiming for. Always.

Bike ride was great great! Lots of green, lots of small hills. And a fun little surprise at my camping spot. A bird has nested in the electricity box. First time that I ever used one of these. I fear the eggs don't have a high chance of getting alive.
