    Bolsena (IT)

    August 8, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    A day of mixed fortunes. Tyre burst and ripped to shreds in the middle of nowhere. Put on my sad look face and rang a doorbell at a small factory. One of the workers loaded me, my bike and all my bags into his car, and took me to the nearest town.

    Dropped me off at a workshop, I guess he knew one of the staff. Was told to wait two minutes and he took off on his scooter. Came back after thirty minutes with a second hand tyre and tube. Back on the road again !!

    Camp tonight right on the shore of Lake Bolsena. Evening intertainment watching a plane skimming over the lake scooping water to put out a fire in the hills behind the town.

    Love your pics and what good people in the world to help you so willingly ... you must have felt devastated when the tyre shredded.. day ended well and relate to water drops on fires as experienced in Fish Hoek where helicopters scooped sea water. Go safely today Neyse
