An easy ride
We took it easy at a slow pace so we could let our eyes discover slowly everything we saw. It was good for our minds. To be outdoors and not think about the situation in the world. After all day inside it is good to get some exercise and fresh air. It brought me back to our Northern Europe trip where we cycled from Belgium to Norway and back. I miss traveling at the moment, being on the road, wild camping and most of all I miss the adventure. All of it. We are lucky to be where we are. No complaining at all but that doesn’t mean our legs are not itchy to cycle big distances again. Our own trip in November might be delayed. Depending on how everything evolves.
I guess the only thing we can do is wait. In the meanwhile, it is time to discover my own hometown where I grew up as a kid. And I hope you can do that too. If you are able to go outside, be sure to discover your own home! It can be surprising and beautiful. If you can’t, then I hope the situation gets better real quick. People are not meant to stay inside all day.
