I apologise to all for the delay in getting back to posting. It has been a tiring few weeks. I have almost recovered from my injuries and today actually managed to take my camera out to capture a few images of the city. Nothing too exciting but it was great being able to hold up my camera without wincing in agony.
In other news, the landlord/flatmate arrived back last night, with fiance and her son in tow. Such nice people. Although I am guessing he is a little mad just like me. As he needed to collect his motorcycle from the garage today and his fiance wasn’t here, he asked if I could go with him and drive the car back, with Eliot (the step-son) while he rode the bike. I’ve only really known him for a couple of days. Oh well. I didn’t tell him I hadn’t driven a left hand drive car before, but it all worked out. We got back safe and sound, and apart from my left hand hitting the door once when I needed to change gear, it’s actually not an issue.
Anyhow, I should be posting more regularly now. I hope you enjoy the photos.
So, this morning my sister left on the drive back to Avignon to catch her train to Paris. Today involves yet another change of hotel for me. For 3 days at this one. Hopefully I’ll find accommodation soon.
I am now sat in a restaurant in Place de la Comédie having croissant and café. Did I mention it is 7:15am. I have a long wait before I can check into the hotel.
Not feeling the best today, thankfully the painkillers are not in short supply.
Anyhow, a little, perhaps boring, update.
Parler à bientôt.
I would like to apologise for the delay in posting about my trip so far. I did say this was going to be an adventure and, well, it has been interesting.
Last Friday, Day 3 of my Journey, I was riding through Avignon on my way to Montpellier. After spending an amazing morning riding from Valence and up to the summit of Mt Ventoux. During ‘rush hour’ traffic, I entered a roundabout and as I am exiting from it a car turns straight into me. The next thing I remember is waking, surrounded by police and paramedics, and screaming in agony. (more…)
Well, here we are, the day before I am due to leave the UK for my adventure to France. Everything is packed, the movers have been and taken everything into storage, goodbyes said, forex organised. All ready to go…
Well… That was the plan anyway. I go out to my bike this morning to pop into town and it doesn’t start. Managed to get it started, however, there is now a tapping sound in the engine, then when revved, the engine cuts out. Message left with bike guy, but being a Sunday, he hasn’t responded. (more…)
Okay, the countdown continues, 7 days to go until my adventure. The next week is going to be hectic, seeing the last few people I can, the movers arrive to collect my stuff, hopefully getting my bike serviced (really should have done this sooner).
Anyhow, the last week has defiantly felt like the calm before the storm. I hope I’ve got everything sorted that needed to be.
Right, time to face the last week in the UK.
Speak soon and take care x
