... with this news as it means I will spend tonight enjoying the hotel facilities I've missed these past two nights, eg., a proper bed with sheets and blankets, Wi-Fi, etc. I didn't include bathing facilities in this short list as I did eventually discover a bath and shower at my last night's lodgings. They were at the very top of the house which I hadn't explored earlier in the day.
The route today took me through a combination of ...
