Old and new friends
We were just about to start another sweaty uphill climb (the hills that Kaisa's been waiting for this whole time finally started in Southern Poland) when a man standing by a car called out, waving a big water bottle. This French couple was on a roadtrip/cycling tour around Europe, and wanted to fill up our half-empty bottles. We very thankfully accepted the offer and chatted for a moment on the roadside. What a cool way to meet other cyclists!
After continuing for just a few kilometers we noticed a car slowing down next to us and from the rolled-down window we saw our Dutch friend Tim, who was going to join the same yoga retreat as we. As a happy coincidence we happened to be on the same road at the same time, he driving down from Berlin and us cycling from Zary.
Maybe this is what it feels like to have a service car follow you on a bike trip: good company, food and water is always available on the roadside!
