A new country, new friends, and the beautiful old city of Ghent.
Rain and knee pain filled my second and third day’s but so did a beautiful cathedral and a welcoming Warm Showers host.
A 60 mile day full of backtracking and getting lost on weird cobblestone streets, hiking trails and roads that were bigger than I wanted was a real test of wills…but I did it.
Jet lag loomed and setting up the bike was stressful but a weekend in Paris was also just as lovely as you would expect.
Vanessa and I interview each other about our upcoming three month trip to cycle and WWOOF in France, Belgium & Holland, and hike in Spain.
