It is time to improve life, make a change and do something different. We’re leaving Spain soon, riding north me and my Lazy Cat. And it is going to be one fat ass lazy cat for sure. Of course some boxes have been shipped to our new destination but everything I still have left has to come on the bike, and believe me, even if it is what seems to be the bare necessities, those things add up tremendously. Besides this, the camping stuff is coming – a new challenge. I’m going to try riding with the GPS and find campsites at the end of the day.
Some last improvements are being done on the bike. Today’s project is mounting an electrical socket to the bike. I realised that even though my Quechua phone has long lasting battery, it still runs out quickly when running the GPS. Besides, the electrical socket can also charge my GPS runners watch, which is also essential.
Next week I’m going to Racing House to let the garage give the bike a check before the ride and change the heated grips that ceased to function. Even summers can be chilly up north. I will miss the climate in Spain, that is for sure, I’m likely to miss more than that. But still, doing something new is always exciting. And imagine, spending a summer in Sweden, riding all those little favourite back roads again – it seems exctic and familiar both at once.
