EuroVelo 8 - train station in Cuneo

Today was a meh day. Mostly because of me. I had a great breakfast and my host showed me a very old wagon that was used to put down fires. Beautiful tiny roads with apple orchards. A quick chase from a small dog. And then a train ride, or actually three. The advise was to bridge the alps on this part, because the streets are not fully worked out. That's what I did. And I think that's when the meh started. Maybe it was not me. I had to switch trains two times. And all elevators were too small to fit my bike. I had to do the stairs, which is super annoying. My blue spots slowly disappeared, but now they're back with some smaller scratches. Really bad entrances to the trains as well. Was a lot better on my initial travels. I survived, but was so exhausted, that I forgot my pack of cigarettes in the shop. Which left me more annoyed. I could not fully enjoy the amazing cycleway along the coast. I did my best, but sometimes it doesn't work. Tomorrow is another day. Last night in Italy for that part.

I arrived in France! And I have a new favourite. Going through tunnels. Today I went through many tunnels, with and without cars. They're actually quite fun, just like in another sphere. The ones with the cars were not a problem, french drivers are SO polite. I almost feel bad for them when they drive behind me for a long time. I took a different round then originally planned. Wanted to quickly pass Monte Carlo. Never been there. And yes, my legs are bruised. And the tan lines will be bonkers. But they get stronger by the day. Originally I thought I would need to get smaller jeans, but actually I might get bigger ones to fit all these future muscles.
