Feeling stronger than the day before we were eager to get back to the old routine of hitting the 100km mark. The morning started well with a respectable 50kms before lunch.
Since arriving in Greece the cost of living has greatly increased. So aswell as cutting out on accommodation by camping, we are also eating supermarket food. Thankfully Lidl are a big player in Greece.
After a large shop in Lidl we stopped in a park in the town of Kozani for some good auld ham/cheese sandwiches.

After lunch we soon came across a large river. It being Istanbul since we last washed our clothes, we ceased the opportunity to do some laundry oldstyle.

You plunge, and you scrub…
and if they’re not clean after that…….
…you plung and scrub!!
Today has been one of the most pleasurable cycles we’ve had to date with spectacular scenery and a wonderful aroma from the trees and flowers.

We arrived in Greneva at 830 and had a quick coffee and filled up our water bottles in preparation for another night in our tents. We headed out of town in search of a campspot and came upon a local park where we waited till dusk to pitch our tents.
Campsite for the night…
Before dark we had noticed clouds gathering. Maybe tonight the tents would be put to the test……..
