I’m currently having to put in some longer days in order to get back for my planned finish date; so rather than me starting every blog saying: “I’m late again so this will be a short update”, maybe just assume that that’s the case from now on.
Today was long, but nowhere near as hot or hilly as yesterday. The wind kept changing between headwind and tailwind which was frustrating at times but overall didn’t pose too much of a problem.
I went through Salamanca at about half way through today which was very nice. I think that’s somewhere to visit properly at some point in the future. Spain so far has been good; not that there was anything wrong with Portugal, it just wasn’t that interesting.
Only other thing to mention about the ride today is that I went through my second (and final) antipodal point. Not massively significant in terms of progress but it’s a good thing to tick off.
The downside to Spain is how late the people eat. By 8:30 when the restaurants opened this evening I was absolutely starving, and possibly another reason why I’m so late.
Two more full days in Spain, a week until I’m on the ferry crossing the channel.
