Day 2 – 8th April 2014 leave 8.00am Miles rode 272 Calais – Luxembourg

I left the ‘Formula 1 Hotel’ at about 8am, within minutes I was full of emotion, I screamed and thought maybe I should stop as I wasn’t in control. After 15 minutes I stopped for a coffee and 3 French men were chatting at the bar, one had a beer and brandy, only in France! I left and put on Oasis ‘what’s the story’, I sang along with passion and joy and then when ‘Champagne Supernova’ came on I was singing and the tears were rolling down my cheeks. It will be a few weeks before I’m chilled and where I want to be. France is great as are the French.

Belgium is dull and boring.

Luxembourg was clean and sterile.
