Fantastic Voyage

"The story really began in January 1953, when I suggested to Gordon that we might go on a cycling holiday together..." They covered 2,286 miles, slept in potting sheds, hay barns, and even a railway marshalling yard, and the whole trip cost them £24. Now, 50 years later, Roy Jenkin's daughter is planning to retrace/tread her father's path. Even if you're not into travelogues (past or present) the photos of post-WWII Europe are worth a gander.

I love this photo.

Doesn't make me want to sleep in a potting shed, mind.

Nice link, shoepal
