Ambiente acolhedor e simpático. Café da manhã simples, mas servido em um terraço bonito. Todo mundo ali parece feliz, hóspedes em suas motos ou nos seus carros que lembram a época de Scott Fitzgerald na Côte d'Azur. Charme, naturalmente.

"According to positive psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, what you are experiencing in that moment is known as flow, a state of complete immersion in an activity. He describes the mental state ...
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. Our SPOT tracker has died today, so unfortunately shows us still in Guilestre! We plan to carb load now as have a huge day tomorrow up the Cime de la Bonette (2802m), a 23.1km climb at 6.5%. Yikes. Also saw our first sign to the finish line in Nice ...
