By the time we reached Guillestre we had both worked up quite an appetite - turns out two muffins aren't really enough sustenance for conquering mountains on a touring bike! They say a picture tells a thousand words. Well by adding more and more pictures to this blog, we are saving you guys hours of reading! Aren't we ...
