Firstly thank you for all the lovely messages since I left.
It is especially helpful as today is the 3rd day of strong headwinds, I seem to be locked out of my usual email path and it is pouring with rain!!
The bluest of blue cornflowers in amber fields, bright cranberry rooftops singing from green fields or forrests;horses welcoming me as I pass and a field of very entertaining full-uddered cows who seem to be having an identity shift and behaving like a rugby scrum, pushing and butting each other in a most un lady-like way!!
Off the bike I am aghast at the weight of my bags. On the bike it all seems fine. (it is exceptionally flat and a kind warm up for what´s to come) I found the sweetest little “primitive” site by the roadside … all to myself and enjoyed the first night under camping.
The previous night I spent in a very grand Youth Hostel in Esbjerg as I took a day to get my bearings from the ferry. Yes, a piano!! so it was ´send in the clowns´and opus 109 for a sensitve Polish lad… you just never know when those pianos are going to show up.
I have been treated very kindly. A young woman in a little village co-op made me coffee rather than see me cycle 3 km to find a cafe!!
Off now to find a sheltered spot for picnic (it allcosts much more here) left over from breakfast and pocketed for later… ie any minute now!
