ABC Wednesday - Journey

To journey by bike is the best way to see a country, faster than walking yet slow enough see the sights and meet the people.  This bike was outside the port office in La Roche Bernard so perhaps the owner had another mode of transport for his journey in mind such as
this one which would take the three sailors out into the Atlantic. If a little more comfort is required maybe something bigger would take one to another country
 such as this ferry leaving Portsmouth bound for St Malo. Or maybe journey across continents by train
although you would have to pick the right day with my local line up the coast. This photo was taken on Sunday and no trains ever run on that day.   So maybe it would be better to jump on
a motor bike like this one.

The ABC Wednesday journey from A to Z has reached the letter J

Love the photos of the many ways to take a journey. I personally prefer the automobile.

That's a nice post about "journey", I just wished I could do it, maybe not with a bike :) !

We often talk about touring on a one way ticket - so we could travel further south to Spain and return home on that ferry to Portsmouth.
Great trip.
