TransPortugal – Day 3, the unexpected rest day.

As mentioned in my last post, today’s stage had been cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. So instead of writing an article about the day’s events I’m going to treat you to a bunch of pictures instead.

Let’s start with Portuguese breakfast!

Every kind of bread you can imagine both savory and sweet, eggs, bacon, ham, cheese, fruit…

 

Then off to Tom’s happy place when not on the bike,  the mechanic’s area. 20160510_021317
