The day before there were thunderstorms and the sky is still heavy. I don’t leave very early... a little before 9:00.
The rain threatens Gigen so I decide not to take the Eurovélo but rather the main road to Nikolov. I have to save a few kilometers :)
A little further on, well after Nikolov) I don’t see a junction and I realize it when I look at my route a few hundred meters further on. So there again I continue on the main road but in reality I gain nothing. I probably lost a better view along the Danube, it was a miscalculation.
After two hours of driving, the rain starts to fall. I take the covers out for the bags and hesitate a little to cover myself. Finally it will be very useful a few moments later.
All along the Danube there are many industries but there it is particularly true, cranes, tanks we see it everywhere.
On the mileage side, the signage is a bit fanciful :
- at the bottom of the coast in Nikolov the sign announces Svischtov 47
- at the top of the hill.... it also announces 47 !!!
- and a few kilometers further on 54 !!!!!
A little before the arrival of the same kind of pranks : we go from 14 to 18 ^^^
I arrive a little before 5pm (Bulgarian time) in Svishtov and shortly after my arrival a shower falls. At least I would have escaped this one ! It seems that rains are becoming rarer in the coming days.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
