      headstart

      July 28, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

      I went on my own and by that started my trip

      first things first I tried an ophthalmologist just two blocks away, but he wasn’t there. what for?! An insect has flown in my right eye and left a small piece which wouldn’t move and sat right there beneath my cornea on the outer eyeball. It caused minor vision problems and discomfort when blinking as well as a accumulation of dried up tear fluid every night.
      Things like that just come and somehow don’t go, at first glance it’s not that dangerous but the moment I really wasn’t able to remove it by myself told me a lot of arising problems. I didn’t take it that seriously but then realized that a real specialist would have to remove it to not mess with my sight. In Italy there‘s only 1 such doctor per 8.000 inhabitants but which of them would remove my problem instantly when showing up? That question was to accompany a lil bit longer.

      So I said goodbye to my friends and rode to the next hospital with a emergency unit in place
      I left after a few minutes because there was many people and nothin was movin

      avanti a destinazione lago di garda

      Not as I thought but bein there with the car before didn‘t take away that adventurous character I tried and try to achieve every time I arrive with a bike at a destination

      after some bike and garda bike station problems I arrived in Brescia, nice town but somehow not seemed worth living there
      Had a nice chat with a local fruit vendor, my italian skills (at least understanding) are improving perfectly.

      After some nice Culurgiones I visited the poly-ambulance
      A nice nurse told me the Ophthalmologist is only present at daytime but I could have a bed and let the bike in a hallway at the emergency unit
      I kindly denied but felt the indecisiveness in me. After I went back to my bike which was parked right where ambulances would deliver patients (cctv‘ed) I went back inside to tell her I changed my mind because she really tried to look inside of me and offered me shelter shower and a bed which I didn’t have before
      Well-she left and only colleagues of her were present; situation was awkward so I left. I went for that range-extender (1hr extra of riding in the evening to boost total distance) but in the night already. I made it to desenzano where I thought to get shelter underneath some trees. The weather changed and caused some real problems there…
      First I thought I would be ok sleepin just out in the green with only a towel and possibly a jacket. I totally forgot my need of water to shower and wash etc.
      I gathered my now relatively wet things and checked into the next 24/7 hotel (at 0:30) , washed them and went to bed
