Essaouira to Bouabout


THE START LINE
  • Essaouira 20th March 2016
After an early start out of Luton, we arrive in a somewhat warmer climate than we left. I say we… I’ve a confession, I’ve sneaked along a cycling partner for the start of this journey, namely, Jude! Yes, female, but she tells me she’s tough and akin to a machine… we’ll see.
Arrival Essaouira
The journey/adventure started before we even got through the terminal. Nearly two hours just to get to the car park.
First, passports had to be checked by all in sundry on the apron, and then asked, where had we come from!

Pontsticill Forest to Coed Craigyrogof Woods


WALES – CAM DAU
  • Pontsticill Forest 9th June 2014
After what turned out to be a rather pleasant night considering the hassle to start with early evening … broken tent, midges etc..
Pontsticill forest
The forest has been good to me though, nothing better than that protective feel of a dense canopy.
Wooden bridge
The air is damp, but one gets that feeling of ‘life’ from it. Too many people complain about the weather. THE weather brings life … SIMPLE!

Padstow to Pontsticill Forest

 

WALES – CAM UN
  • Padstow 5th June 2014
As with any departure from Padstow, I’ve a pleasant cycle along the Camel Trail towards Bodmin Parkway railway station. This time, an appointment with the Penzance to Paddington (London) train.
First, just the small obstacle of a fallen tree … not so small! No going over, no going round, so remove the panniers, drag them and bike under.

Fortunately the summer is looking like a good’un and long may it continue!
Severn Beach station
From the Severn Beach end-of-the-line station stop I’ve a pleasantly flat cycle to the Severn Bridge.
