100 days’ riding done. Europe and India already feel like years ago. There have been a lot of miles since then and both of those legs feel like part of a completely different trip.
Today started off cold… very cold. For the first 30 kilometres I was riding through a very thick mist and this caused me to seriously misjudge how warm it would be when getting dressed this morning. The temperature dropped below 3 degrees for a while and wearing shorts was a fairly bold decision. My toes really suffered and after just over an hour I had to stop to get some feeling back into them and put on some thicker socks.
After the first two hours, it started to warm up and the rest of the day was probably the best weather I’ve had all week.
I’m now staying with family and am taking a day off. So, once again, I probably won’t post anything tomorrow. Seems a bit ironic considering I’ll have more time than normal.

PS. Chris – whilst dingoes can be found all over Australia they are most common in the parts I’m not going to (the North) so don’t hold your breath… And what’s the fuss about? Aren’t they just descendants from dogs that got fed up with their owners?
