Our plan to follow the signed cycleways in the general direction of East worked surprisingly well, that is until we encountered a slight…

A pretty good spot to camp

Even if we did have to pay. Night time is often the best time to explore these towns, it’s cool and quiet, and the buildings are beautifully lit up. A lovely wander round town the following morning.
