Day 55

Biking through forests and not so hilly areas is not as spectacular, but it is still very beautiful. Lots of flowers blossoming, lush green everywhere. And yeah, quite some rain as well. I don’t mind it too much, as long as it’s not pouring. And as long as there’s no thunderstorm. Thunder and lightning freak me out quite a bit when I’m on the bike. But not today.

Stayed in a BnB, and enjoyed it quite. Mainly because my hand was hurting still a bit and because of the rain. Having a crash, even when not really bad, is something that takes a day for me to get over it.

Got some strawberry cake and cooked in the evening. Plus, I ate whole head of salad.

Day 56

Started with a lovely breakfast in the toolbox! What followed? Forests, fields and. Rain. Went to Vire to get a screw for the backpart where I attach my panniers. Somehow lost it. Found a bikeshop and they immediately put it in the workshop. Fairly complicated seeming. And then a big crack. He somehow managed to break the screw on the other side. They fixed it in the end and didn’t want any money for it. Which made me a bit suspicious. Right I was. They had cut the cable to my backlight. The most annoying thing to fix. Can always happen, but they should have told me.

Later I had lovely dinner at crepes place with my hosts. Great view!
