Forget everything I said about British trains, French trains are the worst. They are trying to fit reservations of coach 8, 18 and 28 in one coach. Interestingly there aren't enough seats.

Honestly, the person who thought it was a good idea to put pianos in train stations should be punished severely.

If you ever consider traveling to Scotland in the Caledonian Sleeper, let me give you a piece of advice: DON'T. It's the most horrid night train ever and you can easily get a ticket for the next day and a hotel for the same price! If you want to travel in a nice night train, come to Europe!

Drinking and waiting for the Caledonian Sleeper to London. Got another couple of hours to kill....

We're now back in Edinburgh. Getting the bicycles on the train worked flawlessly - with the reservation. I saw others being turned away....

Huge kudos to @smj for all of the awesome and dedicated work he's done for @SDF over the years! ๐ŸŽ†๐Ÿ’ป

Today the typical Scottish summer is back.... And I didn't know it was that hard to get bicycles on trains from Inverness to Edinburgh.

Fibre, in Scotland, in the middle of nowhere. Meanwhile in Schwyz, Switzerland they don't even manage to get fibre to the center of town.

We had the best dinner ever on a campsite: lamb, pre-cooked and packed by chef @kevie

Finally I'm back in the land of mobile internet, not just GSM and some GPRS.

Good morning from South Uist. More fog and clouds today. It would be nice to actually see the islands we're cycling on.

His famous last words were: "Only over my dead body you will build that road."

According to my Garmin we cycled 91km today with a total ascent of 1400m.

When the data model and reality don't coincide and reality has to be adapted...

Thanks to @kevie I discovered the KISS launcher on F-Droid. Way more what I need than the default.

The with @mcnalu, @perloid, @kevie, @thelovebug was great even though we left a wee bit early. ;)

The most cyberpunk church in Glasgow...

Arrived in Glasgow after following the canal for 100km.

@timttmy do you known the beer we're having in Edinburgh?
