After the long ride yesterday from Paris to Annecy, and a restless nights sleep, we decided to abandon our initial plans to ride to Chamonix and Geneva, and just have a relaxing Off Bike day. Vince took the opportunity to prepare our India Visa Applications and endeavoured to contact numerous BMW dealers in France, Austria and Switzerland to get our bike its 20,000km service (we’ve done 9000 on this trip so far) and new tyres….whilst I plotted a scenic route though the alps in more detail for when we can move on.
We took a walk to some nearby shops looking for a few extra dry bags (because the panniers leak and we are using plastic bags they now have a few holes in them….no luck! In the evening we had a “cheap and cheerful” dinner and did a bit of online banking…..OMG have we spent that much already! Freedom doesn’t come cheap!
