The last ride south of the Loire
The Brompton must be oiled for the winter. Until the next year it’s going to be stored folded and greased.

Hyatt Regency, Charles de Gaulle
On the train back home: Montparnasse -> Poitiers -> Montmorillon -> La Trimouille. The last part is by bike.
My route: board the TGV at Montparnasse to get to Poitiers. At Poitiers, there’s a little local train to Montmorillon. And I still have 16 kilometers to get home. No public transit!
Pour aller de Montmorillon à La Trim, j’ai utilisé ce scooter des enfants. Il fonctionnait très bien.
Solution: the little red-wheeled Razor scooter!
It worked very well. This is my travel gear at Poitiers.
Paris, Velib – a few years back.

United loses my bike on the way back from Paris. 3 days later, it is handed to me by an agent. Everything looks fine. There’s an additional tag with an airport code. The bike has been to Indonesia!
Saint Savin, France – fall 2015
The German portable oven, solid fuel. A bit slow, but super-light.
I pitched my tent under this tree next to the electricity hook-up. Can you see it?
