Le Sables de-Olonne

Just a quick update. I’m heading south, following the sun and hope to be in Bordeaux in a week. Spending most of the days walking but that does not mean I’m not having some adventures  have seen a, thankfully slow, car crash and experienced every kind of weather imaginable apart from snow and hail. It is getting warmer as I get further south, which feels great. Was definitely not ready for autumn yet.

Have had poor access to internet, the main reason the updates have not been so frequent. My pre-paid card ran out and even when the campsites claim they have internet, it is not always what I would call high speed. More like no speed a lot of the time.

Had my first puncture since England this morning. A big, fat thorn that went straight through the kevlar puncture protection.
The morning continued with rain and thunderstorms, soaking me to the skin. But the sun is starting to break through the cloud cover and I am enjoying a coffee as I type this, so it’s not to bad.

Need to hit the road again, more updates to come, stay tuned!
