Beginning

This blog relates my bicycling adventures in western Europe in the spring and summer of 2011. The blog was written for friends and family who wanted to follow along and as a memento for myself. Almost all of it was thumb-typed while on the road on an iPhone turned iPod Touch. No editing was done after the fact other than to correct some typos. Comments have been removed and the blog will remain static until my next cycling or travel adventure that warrants a blog.

As it behooves a proper blog, or at least one defined within the confines of the wordpress universe, all blog posts are in reverse chronological. This makes for great following at the time of writing, but is awkward if you are reading this blog after the trip has finished. In that case it makes more sense to simply start at the beginning.
