On a back road in the northern plains in Italy, I thought, this is pretty awesome. I am cycling across the planet. Away from the constant racket of cars, trucks and motorbikes, passing through fields and over valley ridges, I feel like I am cycling again. Not just making sure I’m staying alive. Happy.

Lunch is an important event for a cyclist. Sometimes it is in a pleasant place. Sometimes it is just somewhere when the hunger hits. Today I found a lovely bakery in a pretty town with a castle on the hill behind – Soave.

And milestones appease my ego. 2000km from Eindhoven and going strong.

Padova is a beautiful city. I was here once before many moons ago. Tonight the moon made for an impressive backdrop as I strolled through the city centre at night.
