This is the first blog typed on a funky keyboard, admittedly the letters are still of the latin variety, no cyrillic or farsi just yet, but its still odd. I keep hitting q instead of a and forget semi colon s- I have no idea? So please forgive the spelling and grammatical mistakes.
It seems like we have been here in Cherbourg for ages as we are dying to give our new KTM bikes a proper test ride, mine has done a mere 10km. Yesterday was a public holiday, for Rembemberance Day so we had little to do but roam the streets looking for a cafe that was open, and wait until this morning to get the few bits and pieces for the bikes that we need to get on our way.
We are leaving now (3pm), and expect to camp somewhere 50km south. As we have not got a map yet we are not sure exactly where. It is suffice to say that as long as it is south west of here at least we are going in the right direction.
