Port hills mostly

We travel ALL the way across the world and the first Scottish person we meet comes from Kyle of Lochalsh and knows Jaynes old flatmate. Small world eh !

We still got sun tan(or burnt in Jaynes backs case) even though by locals standards it was over cast and cold !

Look at the width of that dedicated cycle path ! and the cars just dont venture into it ! We have been riding round the city for the last 2 days and not once have we felt threatened by a cars presence !

Last update for a few days , the tent doesnt have internet access and we are leaving the hostel tomorrow for Raikara Gorge and to Geraldine on Sunday before we hit the hills !

Love the little orphaned sparrow you came across.Why don't you pop him in your handlebar bag Jayne and take him along with you.He looks so lost and lonely. All the best on the open road.intst
