A busy week saying goodbye to friends from across Scotland. We realise how blessed we are and how sad we are to be leaving so many lovely people. We hope some of you will come and join us for a bit of our journey at various places around the world.
Today, we were touched by how many friends turned up to wave us off from the Viewing Platform in Perth. The sun shone, the wind blew and we managed to stay upright on our bikes whilst waving and cycling.
We’re now 15 miles down the road enjoying our first quiet sit down for about 6 weeks. It’s good to be on the road, though it’s feeling a little surreal at the moment. We can’t quite believe that we have really made this happen.
We met our first fellow cycle tourer in Bridge of Earn whilst having a quick stop for lunch.
Martyn is about to cycle from Munich to Venice and has previously cycled down Africa to Cape Town.
