This was what I posted on October 11th during the turning point, and may mainly been seen as “historical curiosa”!
“My other blog posts will appear in the future.
I jump Portugal, and aim for Morocco directly, as that is a country I really want to bike through (Portugal did not feel as special). On my way there I even got checkpoints if I don’t feel to do Morocco; Madrid in a couple of days, then Malaga is pretty close to the border, and after that the airport in Morocco is not that far.
Making this change made everything feel better, even though the roads today sucked harder than ever before (mud that stops the wheels from turning), so I am pretty sure it is the right thing to do. We’ll see, my plans is never precise!”
