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.”
