91km of 3919km so far…
I woke up very early with a massive hung over, as I think I drunk two bootles of wine by my self the night before. I managed to go to sleep for another hour, before starting to pack my bike. Justin and Sam were leaving as well, so we said goodbies, exchanged emails and left the camp site.
From Venice you can take the ferry to Greece and initially I was thinking to end my trip there. But I don’t want to stop cycling yet. Since my knee feels better and I am not in a hurry to get back, I decided to go a bit further down and maybe take the boat from Ancona.
After spending three full on days in Venice, I wasn’t much for much. I took the quietest roads and headed for a hostel in a remote location by the Bianco canal. For most of the way there were cycle paths, so I didn’t have to deal with traffic, which was a good and smooth transition after spending three days off in a city without cars.
I got to the hostel at around 5pm. The staff there were very friendly and helpful with me. I was given a ground floor room so I can keep the bike with me overnight. The room had bathroom inside and six beds, but again nobody turned up, so overall a very good deal for just â‚¬17, the same amount I paid for camping opposite to Venice. It didn’t have wifi, but only a computer with a coin slot that charged â‚¬2 per hour. But again they appreciated the fact that I was traveling for so long, so they lend me their personal 3G USB key to use for a couple of hours for nothing.
