Day 16: Barcelona to Palamós (116km)

After a day like yesterday and it’s frustrations (and potentially because of two beers), I had slept in. 10 hours of sleep felt very good though.

Leaving Barcelona was almost as bad as coming in but with much less traffic – and much more cyclists.

I had lunch in the famous little tourist hotspot Lloret de Mar – and was not very impressed. However, the little bay is nice.

Since long, my weather app had predicted rain for today. Cycling in the rain at this temperature is no fun. I still have a trauma from my cycling trip through Scotland 30 years ago – my first zis travel – where it had rained almost every single day.

However, miraculously it did not rain. Actually, the weather turned out to be quite nice.

Also, in the afternoon I cycled a very beautiful coastal road with a lot of climbs but with amazing views. And the best: there were practically no cars.

My hotel as a heating – so I could wash my clothes – and can be sure that they will be try tomorrow. Pure luxury.

After all, a bad day turned out to be a good one at the end. 270km still to go until Montpellier.

Insight of the day: Don’t complain about the rain before the drops are falling.
