145 days ago we set off on what was supposed to be a 3 week, 900km peddle across the north coast of Spain from France. Like Forest Gump we just going and going, until eventually we were too far to turn around. Yesterday we completed a 4.5month journey to circumnavigate this fascinating country using nothing but leg power. We clocked up over 4,100kms and 45kms of vertical gain.
Comparable distances are;
Sydney to Perth (3,940kms)
LA to Toronto (4,060kms)
Lisbon to Istanbul (4,100kms)
With 5 Mt Everests inbetween ⛰️🏞️.
We've slept in river beds, camp illegally on beaches, and stumbled across forgotten towns with 1000 years of history.
Between staying with kind strangers and bartering for cheap hostels, and at a really desperate point asking a Reverend to sleep in the entrance of a church (he turned us away in the rain), we've met all kinds of people.
Drivers of Red Porsches are the worst, and truck drivers will usually risk hitting oncoming traffic than come close to you.
What a crazy beautiful ride. I'm so glad Jordan didn't listen every time I said I felt like quitting. Usually he'd feed me a Snickers and we'd be on our way.
I'd highly recommend this method of travel to anyone with an adventurous spirit and who prefers to experience landscapes with the wind in your hair.
Time to pack these bad boys into boxes for winter and on to the next chapter.
