On the ferry over to Portugal.

I met Isabelle, Fabiana, and Pato from Brasil who are cycling from Bordeaux to Lisbon.

They had a film crew with them too. As a result I have now been filmed for Brazilian TV.

Nice to see a big sign announcing Portugal when I got off the ferry.

This is not a path I want to navigate with a bicycle.

An alternative path further up the river. I got across this one.

I've changed timezone. I'm working to daylight hours though so will have to alter my morning alarm to one hour earlier.
