Last gym session for six months.
Not a great night's sleep. Mind racing. Details. Logistics.
If we lose GPS we are lost. I need a map.
“Only I have no luck any more. But who knows? Maybe today. Every day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact. Then when luck comes you are ready.” ― Ernest Hemingway
A busy day. We have everything we need. Map included.
We spent the afternoon packing our panniers. It took us the best part of four hours. Getting the split right. Weight distribution.
Pack. Repack. Forget something. Repack.
In the end, our total weight comes to 50kg. Includes the panniers. 10kg of food.
Our first leg is planned. Barcelona to Logroño. Seven days. 497km.
Prepared. Packed. Excited. Nervous.
