Hill seekers

Lake Burley Griffin was sparkling during our weekend in Canberra. 
Perfect weather for cycling as the temperature hovered around 17 C during the middle of the day with no wind.  The autumn leaves were still putting on a glorious show of colour against the clearest blue sky.  The only downside for the whole weekend was experienced by THE Coach. 
Yes, that's THE Coach changing not one, but two flat tyres, one per day.  Two rides in Canberra - about 45kms over the weekend - not so far, especially not in comparison to those cycling bloggers from New York, but at least we found some hills, thanks to Tim. 
We also found a gem of a cafe on the terrace of the National Library where we enjoyed lunch on Sunday. Thanks Sue and Tim for a great weekend of chatting, eating and cycling.  We'll be back before you know it.
Made our final payment for the cycling trip and have received the train tickets from Paris to Souillac.  There's no backing out now so I must keep hill seeking this week.


  1. I wish you all the best!!!
    Your friend from Poland,
    Ps. I went biking this Sunday. It was a very good day for me:)

  2. Thank you for your kind comments Virginia. As the weather down here starts to cool it is lovely to hear that up north it is now warm enough for you to enjoy cycling.
