As the winter comes to a close the days are slowly getting longer and the weather should start to pick up soon. It was 12 degree Celsius yesterday which for this time of year is quite warm so things are looking good and hopefully we are through the worst of what was a long and wet winter here in Ireland. As winter draws to a close the planning for my summer cycling trip begins. I stupidly spilled coffee over my computer so I had to do all my planning on my android TV box which I think I wrote about in one of my older posts. It was very frustrating as the in built browser is not that great but it done the job. For those of you who are interested a good friend of mine has a small business selling these android boxes so I do recommend them for watching movies and TV.
So this year I am planning on doing a trip around Europe on my bike. I plan to do it solo as most of my friends now have kids which is a scary thought and other more important responsibilities. Luckily for me I am still a free man so I want to do as many of these trips as I can before I get tied down in the future. Although for anyone reading this if you are interested in teaming up just send me an email as I would be more than happy to have the company.
I plan to start off in France to which I will get the ferry and then I plan to cycle down to the south of France and over the mountains to northern Italy. From there I will cycle down to Rome and fly home from Rome to Dublin. I estimate this trip should take me around 25 days so if anyone thinks they can keep up just send me a message. I have no more details yet as for the moment it is just an idea I have really but I will keep this site updated :).
