The plan was that every third day would be shorter and easier than the previous two to give us a rest and so Day 03 was, on paper, a half-day with time to rest and recover after two big days in the saddle – HA!
This is not the comprehensive trip report of a successful and complete off-road traverse of the Pyrenees that I’d hoped to be writing but nevertheless here is a little write-up of my (shortened) Pyrenean adventure.
Right…..it’s almost 04:00, I’ve got a taxi coming to take me to St Pancras in 15 minutes, I got 3.5 hours sleep after a wedding last night and I’ve got a 17 hour day of travel ahead of me! All being well I’ll be back in two weeks having successfully traversed the Pyrenees – wish
Tomorrow we head back to Blighty and in just over a week I’m scheduled to take the train to the very north-east of Spain in order to start the TransPyr trip with Nick, Duncan and Kevin.
At this time my elbow has regained 90% of it’s movement and the pain has almost gone which means……

But…..today there are a few little things to report:
It’s been a while in the planning (and things may well alter yet) but preparations have progressed sufficiently that I think it’s not premature to mention the plans for my Big Trip 2013!
After loving my TransAlp 2012 trip so much I didn’t want to stray too far from that format and so, after a load of research and reading, the plan is to do a TransPyr (Trans Pyrenees) trip.
