The route: 20km up the island to stay with our new Norwegian friends! Total 6935km
Having milked the Houben’s facilities and the staffs’ goodwill for as long as possible, we bade farewell to the beautiful pool and crisp white linen and pottered back up the island to stay with a charming family from Norway who we’d bumped in to the day before. Having barely met us, they kindly offered to put us up for the night at their holiday house – a much appreciated act of spontaneous generosity! The world is a better place for acts like this – thanks guys!
Poolside drinks as the sun set and a beautiful room overlooking the same ensured our transition back to budget touring was delayed for one more day at least…
