After the match we went to the seaside. Much like the British seaside, there were people paddling, ice cream stands and posh hotels. It could have been anywhere on the coast at home.
It was quite a moment, as the last sea I saw was the sea of Japan. That’s over 6000 miles away in a straight line! It doesn’t seem like much on a day to day basis, but it finally sunk home that I’ve managed to travel across an entire continent in my bike. I almost felt proud!
Of course, I’m still a long way from home and not counting my chickens just yet! Tomorrow I plan to take the road that spans the Baltic sea from Kaliningrad to Klaipeda, Lithuania. It looks very interesting, I’ll be sure to have my camera handy!
