Today we had a 20.1km climb at 5.5%. It was overcast but thankfully the rain held off until we were arriving at the campsite.

... convinced me to get crème brulee (after all this is France), and she treated me to a glass of wine. As we parted, we decided to meet for dinner the next night, just to spend more time together and talk more; to keep eachother company. I could tell she was lonely, here all by herself, with all her birds out of the nest so to speak, and I enjoyed her presence. Both nights were filled with laughter, stories, thoughts, ideas, opinions and ...
