Finally the time has come to start part 1 of the Zerow-Emission project. After months of staying at home and social distancing, the excitement for a mid-summer adventure was real as soon as we boarded our train to Paris yesterday afternoon.

As of now, France, Spain and Portugal have all eased their travel restrictions which means Jonathan and me will probably be among the first to take on some cross-continental biking post-lockdown. I'm especially excited about the rare opportunity to experience parts of the epic Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) in South-West France and North Spain without too many fellow tourists and pilgrims around. Well, at least in theory, that is.. Curious to find out!

Yesterday we enjoyed the last hours of daylight with a friend showing us around the Montmartre area. Being in Paris makes you immediately realize how much you've missed travel during the last months.. This really gets me excited to get on the bike now and head down south!
