Small Things ..
P.Forwood again:"But I am starting to feel a little historied out. Everycorner of Europe seems to have magnificent buildings, greatarchitectural feats of the past but I miss the natural beautyof unspoilt wilderness with wild animals. It is difficult tofind ancient history and natural beauty in the one place,mankind seems to supplant one with the other. The areas ofwestern Europe we have visited so far are lacking in unspoiltnature.Often when riding I wonder what we achieve in a day orwhether a day was of any value. But it is not always thelarge things that we do that give meaning. It can be as smallas a different type of coffee, a local pastry, unusualscenery, an encounter with a local character or just managingthe daily grind. Every day is different, we travel roads thatwe will never ride again and see countryside that we willnever see again. That in itself is enough to keep meinterested in the riding."
