From Glasgow(GB) to Hundige(DK)


Day 1-2 (Late start & roadside camping) – destination N/A

I wanted to have a good and early start on my trip, as I think anybody would. But this would not happen because my parcel for my Schwalbe MARATHON 700x25C to arrive. Eventually when they arrived at about 3 and by the time I got them on had about two hours of riding left, this time with a helmet on.

I woke up to a man being frighten by a moving bag he did not know was. He thought that I were a half dead body that was dumped, I assured him that it was not the case. So after a comical morning and a small breakfast I left off with new energy and with great confidence.

Apart from me not having enough water and food, which left which lead me dizzy and lightheaded, this day went by uneventful. But I did learn that having enough food and water is essential, who would have known.

As night fell, I found my self in a situation I did not want to be in, that was not having a place to sleep, and did not want to do so in the dark. So I decided to camp next to the motorway, which I would not advice anybody to do, the reason for me not advising this is because of the high traffic(duh) places like this are to exposed.
