This was what I posted on October 11th during the turning point, and may mainly been seen as “historical curiosa”!
“I am long after in the posting, and I will make those posts later. Now, about the present problem.
I really don’t feel like continuing the trip. Ever since Barcelona, it has not felt good anymore. Maybe because that was my first main goal, and now I feel done. Whichever reason, I am tired. Sad. Got no motivation. The only time it felt good yesterday was after putting up camp and started sleeping (at 17.00). I think the main reason is loneliness. I have had no problems biking by myself until Barcelona, but I don’t feel like doing it anymore.
I have met many wonderful people on the way, which has made this trip awesome. The problem is that I am still lonely after continuing.
I have not made my mind up yet, and my direction is “North Portugal”. We’ll see what happens.”

bonding with so múch people is great fun, but all goodbyes are bound to take a lot of energy. maybe more tenting is the thing?? or leaving your gear temporarily to go home to work for some months, would improve finances and motivation…
your trip is a great inspiration!
I’ve tried tenting, but that only feels better at the point my tent is up and I can sleep, the rest of the day is still the same. I usually need people around me, so I think I should plan for a dual- or group trip!
Hang in there!
När du ändå är på väg mot nordväst kan du göra ett besök i Santiago de Compostela. De är ett stort vallfärdsmål i nordvästra Spanien, och är inte så förskräckligt långt från gränsen till Portugal.
En vanlig rutt dit är att börja i Bilbao och följa kusten tills E70 svänger av söderut.
Det blir Marocko, då det är något jag vill besöka!
