This morning, I emailed my friend Simone with all the bad things about cycle touring – most particularly having to leave camp without breakfast as we did this morning.
Less than 5 mins up the river and we find a bakery, and a 3rd century roman funerary monument to eat it next to. Something great like this happens every day. Even a day which contains all the bad things will have an amazing moment that for me negates all the crap. That’s what I love about cycle touring.
By the way, this is called the Igeler Saeule, it’s UNESCO listed and it’s only still here because the early Christians didn’t know what it was and so didn’t destroy it.
