Healthy breakfast gave me a lot of energy for my next day's trip. After a quick look at the map and a few advises how to find the way out of New Castle from Paul and Liz I was ready for the long day of cycling. Of course I forgot everything they told me and 20 minutes later I was cycling uphill in the wrong direction.
From the long distance this town was looking great
A closer look just confirmed it
I'am lovin'it more:)
Great Latte made me very happy and I was ready to continue my olivetrip
Now I understand why not many people are going to New Castle. They're all going to Durham and I wish I could stay longer...Love this place....Need's to be visited again...
Ok. Next town on my way Darlington. Road to this place was boring and rainy
I even had to stop beside the main road for the quick lunch as I couldn't find any better spots
This is Durham. Can't say nothing interesting about this town. Don't go there..... boring....
I was very pleased to finally leave Durham behind.
countryside house was the only attraction
Sainsbury's selling the trees at the local forest. This day they were on offer for only £0.99 per kilo.
Weather was very bad. It was raining all day and also there were some very strong wind's. I was exhausted and still had no idea where I'm gonna stay overnight. Clock showed 5pm and I wanted to cycle for at least two more hours but strong wind changed my mind. Cycling along busy road became dangerous. I began to look for the place to set my tent.
I was passing farm houses and I came up with an idea to ask people to stay at there barn or shelter cause wind was getting stronger and black clouds didn't promise anything good.
I was very lucky that Marry owner of the farm allowed me to stay there for £5. For that money I could set my tent, use the kitchen at the barn and also use a shower, I was so happy that I could stay here and wait for the storm to pass.
My new tent mate-cat. His/Her name is Cat
Inside the barn was a comfy couch
and a little kitchen
Weather outside was bad and the internet inside was the same....slow
Outstanding view from my tent
