One of the things I love about bicycle touring is that it gives me time to read. I love reading, but I don’t have as much time for it in my normal every-day life as I would like. On a bicycle tour, however, there is a lot of time to just lay in your tent or (in this case) sit in the woods and read.
I was scheduled to check in to my Brasov, Romania apartment at 6 PM, but I arrived in the city a little after 1 PM. So, with nearly five hours to kill, I cycled around the city for a bit and then pushed my bike up into the woods where I sat down and read for several hours.
In case you are curious, I’m currently reading Zorba The Greek.
