Hippity Hop

I was too tired to bike today and stayed in France another night. In the last 6 days, I´d done about 480km with 2 days over 100km in a row.

I spent the morning on the beach. I think someone had a heart attack and they sent the helicopter for him. I hope everything turned out all right.

Believe it or not, I had not yet stopped at a cave (I guess we would call it a winery in America, I´m not sure because I´m not into wine), even though I passed by many that said “degustation gratuit” = free tasting.
When I walked by a cave in Banyuls, I went in and it was such a cool, immediate escape from the heat, I was tempted to ask if I could sleep there.
The wine was delicious and I wished I had more room in my bags or stronger legs so that I could bring a bottle home with me, but they do sell it in America…


and then I had a really good dinner but I feel too bad to say what it was.
It wasn´t cow or pig…

distance ZERO!


  1. your secret is safe with me (except I told Amber) Hippity Hop…

  2. I hope you kept the feet… we can dye them disturbing colors and use them as key chains.

  3. You could also ship yourself some wine, if you find something really good.

    … It’d have to be really good.
