It took a 100km day of up and down hills, along with 3 bouts of food poisoning and one more tyre puncture to bring us into Damascus, finishing off the day, year, and first leg of the trip.
Getting here has been my focus since we left 3 months ago, and we’ve somehow managed to arrive exactly on target, despite taking significant numbers of breaks throughout the trips.
Feeling pretty tired, ill, and generally worn out and rough, its time for a couple of weeks well deserved rest.
And now…. To bed.
