      I cropped my tour, the first part was wrong because my garmin had already started on the train .. No idea how Komoot got this average; we drove fast, but not that fast.

      It's over, bizarre. I don't quite realize it yet, but Rome has been made. I left early this morning and after a fairly easy day I was already in Rome at 1 pm. It is beautiful here, the weather is fantastic and I will enjoy the city for the next five days. And of course looking back on my journey. 26 days of cycling, three days of rest, aching knees, no experience, completely alone, about 1900 kilometers and thousands of meters of climbing ... I didn't always enjoy it, the first weeks I didn't expect to make it to Rome at all. But sometimes it was pure enjoyment and afterwards, from now on, I will look back on it with satisfaction. It will take some getting used to getting up without a day of cycling ahead, with all the luxuries of "normal life" .. this was my last update here, arrivederci !!

      Today is the last day that still counts seriously, just over a thousand vertical meters and about eighty kilometers. Fortunately, the headwind was not as strong today as yesterday and since everything was open again, I didn't have to do my climb on an empty stomach. The kilometers to Rome on the road signs are steadily decreasing, I feel like I can almost smell the finish .. My goal for today was a bit in the middle of nowhere, so I asked somewhere again if I someone's land was allowed to camp. In this case it was between two dilapidated Roman villas, where the owner, who is going to build a hotel here, just happened to be there. A pretty bizarre environment for my last night, but I will not sleep any less well. Tomorrow to Rome !!!

      When I woke up this morning the sun was shining and the sky was clear blue. So really enjoy. I left around ten o'clock, but it was pretty tough today. Although the roads were just asphalt and it wasn't raining, I had a terrible headwind. That combined with a lot of climbing (in altitude meters today my second day of the entire trip) made it quite difficult. When I also had to start my big climb on an empty stomach and with empty water bottles (everything was closed, Sunday) it was really tough. Eventually I made it to the top of it around three o'clock, and there I could find a bar with paninis and cola .. charged, descended again towards Acquapendente, and from there I pedaled my last climb to the lake. Once arrived at the campsite it was almost dark, the wind started to blow very hard, and later also dripping .. but oh well. My day is over, tomorrow the sun is shining and I am comfortable in my tent. Only two more days to Rome!

      Yesterday I took a rest day, because it was too good at la Vialla to leave immediately. However, with a bad weather forecast for today; rain, thunderstorms and wind .. but everything was not that bad, I certainly did not stay dry and the views would have been much better with the sun, but I was already in Siena at 2:30 PM. Instead of sleeping there, I cycled about 20km further and rang the bell at a farmer to ask if I could pitch my tent there: that was allowed! I am even almost dry here, under a shelter, and will continue tomorrow to Lago di Bolsena!

      When I left Florence this morning, it was raining, so that sucks .. but after a while it got dry and the sun even started to shine. However, I did get to roads that weren't that accessible .. paths where there was no path for a long time and roads that were not really accessible, so navigating a bit yourself. But in the end I made it to my final destination; Fattoria la Vialla, a farm where they make all the Italian food and drink you can imagine, which I have enjoyed since I can remember. My grandfather has arranged for me to stay in an apartment here and I am wonderfully spoiled here with all the goodies they have to offer. Tomorrow I may continue to Siena, or I may stay here another day. Now I'm going to relax in my bubble bath ..

      Today was not a very difficult day, although it seemed at the beginning, when I arrived at a closed road after cycling for 2km, to be a hassle-free day. When I stopped at the gate, looking for an untraceable alternative route, an old but very fit Italian arrived. In Italian he made it clear to me that I just had to lift my bike over the fence, and we cycled down the road together. 200 meters later there was another gate, lifting again, and the road was open again! In the meantime, we started talking and continued cycling together. It was called Spartaco, a real Italian, on an old colnago, the last one still made in Italy, told him. Passionate about cycling, the race, the lake we drove around, it was fun, despite my mediocre Italian. He told me that he used to be an Italian time trial champion, that explained a lot. After saying goodbye I cycled to Florence, great to be back and I sleep with an American ultra endurance cyclist, who has lived here for a few years now. Ciao!
