  • Day21

    Wir sind seit etwa 2 Stunden auf dem Weg nach Lyon. Die letzte Nacht haben wir in Belleville-sur-Saone verbracht und sind dort abends in einem super schönen, kleinen Restaurant namens 'La Guinguette' direkt an unserer Anlegestelle eingekehrt . Hier haben wir es uns bei einem leckeren Essen (das Entrecote ist sehr zu empfehlen) und Rotwein gut gehen lassen und gefeiert, dass wir schon so weit gekommen sind:-)

    Vor 2 Tagen hatten wir Besuch von der französischen Wasserschutzpolizei. Das ist kein Witz. Einer der Beamten ist während der Fahrt zu uns rübergehüpft und hat unsere Papiere und notwendige Ausstattung kontrolliert. Dabei ist ihm aufgefallen, dass wir keinen Feuerlöscher haben. Gregor meinte daraufhin, wir hätten ja zwei Wassereimer und der Polizist hat sich kaputt gelacht und uns seine Emailadresse gegeben; wenn wir ihm innerhalb von 2 Wochen den Kaufbeleg für den Feuerlöscher schicken, gibt's auch keine Strafe. Außerdem brauchen wir auch noch eine neue Schwimmweste, weil bei der einen das CE-Siegel fehlt (Wahrscheinlich gab es das damals noch nicht, denn die Weste ist genauso alt wie 'Shippy', sprich über 40 Jahre alt).
    Zum Abschied haben die beiden Polizisten uns noch freundlich gewunken und uns eine schöne Reise gewünscht. Die Welt ist wirklich voller netter Menschen:-)

    Heute gegen 17 Uhr werden wir voraussichtlich in Lyon ankommen, die Stadt soll wirklich schön sein und das Panorama von Lyon vom Wasser aus soll einen fantastischen Anblick bieten (Nach Steves Aussage sogar der schönste nach dem Panorama von Paris).

    PS: Auf der Saone ist es beim Schleusen Pflicht eine Schwimmweste zu tragen. #orangeisthenewnaked

  • Day13

    Last night the rain had stopped so we sat outside in the sun talking and eating. When we went to bed the sky was clear and a dimming blue. But an hour later it started raining again, pretty hard too. It was windy and rainy on and of all night. We left our bikes near the tent which was a bad idea as they has blown over and some of my stuff was wet.

    I have had tonsillitis since the beginning, it was really mild at the start but every morning lately is getting worse and today was no exception. So much pain and discomfort. I was a bit grumpy as i know I have to wait a day or two to see a doctor. Michelle said I was even snoring!!

    We packed up at our usual speed, had a quick soup for breaky and went to the English couple Andrew and Sue's place for coffee, and second breakfast too. They were so nice, we sat outside and talked for a while, they had an amazing view over rolling country side. Then it rained again, so we put our bikes in their shed and went to the lounge room for another coffee.

    We set of around 1pm for Mâcon. I pushed my bike up all the hard hills, I'm just to sick and tired to be bothered biking up then and it gave my bum a nice rest. There were again some awesome down hills! At the cross roads we could go only a few km more to cluny and see a doctor today or another 20 and see one tomorrow. We decided to push on, the rest was down hill anyways with bike paths. There was even an awesome tunnel! As we rolled closer we sent warm showers requests and searched campsites. We made it to the center and had a drink when one called us back!

    Benoit invited us to stay with him and his wife. His parents were also there and surprisingly spoke English. His wife was also quite pregnant, very exciting. They were lovely and let us use their kitchen for dinner and gave us breakfast. The did tell me that all doctors will be close tomorrow due to the Bastille day, so I would have to go to the hospital, or wait until Monday (another 5 days. I don't think so).

    Day 13: 10km

    July 15, 2016 in France

    We had breakfast with the family then set of to find the doctor at the hospital. Happy Bastille Day! Managed to get everything sorted and finally get some antibiotics and pain relief. We stopped in the city for lunch then continued to a campsite just 10km south from the city. We decided to stay in a little tent/tree house as it was not much more expensive than camping. I then had a for hour nap! Felt amazing!

    That night there was a little dance party at the camping, we were liking forward to some karaoke as that is what the program said but the internet was not working. We were easily the oldest there. For the first time ever we decided to lie about our age, we were 20 for the night. A guy asked us and he thought we were 25, so not bad! He was 21. I didn't really like lying about my age, I like being 27, i was thinning if I was 20 then I have not been to Canada or Europe yet, I have not met a lot of my friends yet. I have not studied yet. I don't want to be younger I like what I have done with my life and making myself younger means I have not done it.

    I was actually surprised the youngsters were talking to us and pretty friendly! A few of them were around 20 and working there for two months. We did some dancing and chatting, then we were invited to a guys trailer (classy ei?) And played a drinking game. Michelle is a light weight so was drunk before it began I changed her to juice but she managed to get more wine. After the game I went home but one guy we were talking to stopped to talk ( all in French) he asked me something but I didn't understand, so he showed me. . By touching me a bit and trying to pull me closer.. then I understood what he wanted. No! I don't want that! I am sick and I'm going to bed. I showed him where everyone was but the party had ended so I had to tell him again I'm not interested, no not even interested in kissing him anywhere. I went to bed then he even knocked on my door, I answered to continue saying no leave me alone I'm going to sleep. He finally left and didn't return. I put something over the door ( it's a trap door with no lock) just in case! Weirdo. He had two kids In the tent next to us and was quite young and smoked a lot. Ew. Don't worry mum I can take care of myself ;)
