    Gulf Breeze, Florida's panhandle.

    Gulf Islands National Seashore, Florida.

    This is where the mad seashore birds started shitting on me. Too many times. They obviously didn’t like my cycling through their nesting territory. Not a very fine welcome to Florida!

    The angry (nesting) birds fucking shit on me!!!

    Dinner at a park in Fort Walton Beach:
    My Campbell’s Spaghetti Meatballs can says: Ready in 3 minutes.. Not true. In my non-stove world (I sent my stove back to Denmark months ago), the spaghetti is ready to eat straight from the can. And I really do enjoy this stuff. Mind you, I’ve been pedalling all day and the hole in my stomach grows towards the end of the day, and at less than a dollar I’m not complaining.

    After my canned dinner a part of me feels like cycling again. Not like in Mexico, where I (sort of) just wanted to keep moving, but simply because I enjoy cycling here so much. Sleeping is boring compared to the ever-changing horizons on the bike…

    On this day..
