Where I stayed
It's the morning after our second big day yesterday. Riding all day in rain suits and wet feet was offset by some splendid countryside and an excellent visit to the legendary Colditz Castle as related by Lachlan.
It was interesting to see his response to the place as, unlike me, he hadn't grown up on a diet of WW2 escape stories. I haven't read the books for probably 20 years, but remembered a lot when I saw the locations. Pat Reid's descriptions must be good - looking forward to re-reading the books now I've been there.
Church of Bones today. Should be cool :) Pace should slow right down from here. Probably be in and out of rain suits all week as forecast isn't great, but sunny at the moment do should get going.
By the way, sorry for the formatting issues and duplicated text on some of our posts - the main text box on the travelpod edit screen won't work with Safari on the iPhone, so it's submission via email only until we get to a PC.
