At about 5, we went shopping and then back to a campsite directly at the water. It was expensive, the guy was friendly but strange, and the showers were lukewarm. Which meant, Stef froze to death and for me it was almost warming. The night was surprisingly warm and we slept like babies (you can totally sleep 10 hours after 75+ km of cycling with a 26 kg bike)
So, the journey starts. ( And Jan is writing this blogpost because...because) (because stef is working)
We knew we still had some gear to pack so we went to bed early (don't believe me) which resulted in an early start (11 am) the next morning.

Got in the room, made friends with my hosts, had a few ...
Wanted to stop but, the only car park was full, the one street already had four motorbikes parked outside the only pub, and the McDonalds seat was taken, and the local hooker had already pulled the mayor!
Obviously all thats a joke, but I did get through it quite quickly, and wanted to find somewhere to stay.
