Yesterday, as every night before going to sleep, I soaked a few handfuls of oat flakes, seeds and nuts. The water I used is from the river I've been paddling since last week, the same water I drink myself and all those boisterous little birds that just woke me up.
Thirteen weeks have passed since the last break, since the last resupply. Then came Europe.The challenge of crossing the continent has left its imprint on our tires, a little more worn; and on our legs, a bit more bulky. Any other trace got dissolved with greater or lesser difficulty under the hot water.The invisible marks are the ones that have the greatest impact though.
