More often that not it's the things that don't go to plan that make the trip memorable. Sometimes it's the struggle that you reminisce the most once the trip comes to a close. This trip was filled with them. Struggles and things not going to plan. The heaviest rain in seven years, multiple broken bikes and stuck sleeping under the stars with no means of cooking was all part of it. Being wet, cold and hungry was not super enjoyable at the time but every time we talk about the trip is what we laugh at the most. Our mechanical skills definitely improved, we made tea in empty beer cans over the fire and we learnt the difference that good company can have in a trying time. The morale of the story is don't plan too much, you never know what fun you might have.
