Land's End to John o'Groats - Severn Bridge near Bristol

Biking from Bristol over a bridge. Never sure what I think of them, but in the end, always a bit scared. Maybe due to a little accident I had on the Golden Gate Bridge, but this one was empty, so no problems. Then I went through beautiful mountains down a valley to Tintern Abbey. Reminded me almost of the Alps. Ended on a small campsite in the middle of nowhere with a great panorama.

The most exciting thing, I finally made my first coffee! I got this excellent little foldable kettle from SeaToSummit and it worked like a charm. Getting coffee is essential for me, if I don't get it, I get a bit cranky. This is solved now. Still a bit scared of the gas tanks though, but well... Ride was, as far as I can remember, uneventful and nice. I remember this one part where they're planting quite some trees, which was great to see. Oh, and I met two bike touring people who looked actually cool once I left my camp spot. We shared the road for exactly 100m. Camping in the evening was great, with a surprise visit of cows taking a bath in the river beside my tent.

And another thing. I love the public footpaths. Great idea. But mostly not bikeable, which my route is sometimes neglecting. Will need to look up the history behind them, and the one of the #bridleways as well.
