Normally it was about 5 to 7 degrees in the morning when we waked up (normally about 5 or 6 AM). Then the temperature would quickly raise and by the time you were ready to begin cycling it was about 15 degrees or so, perfect for shorts and sandals. And we feel very lucky that we left Sweden just before the autumn began there.
Midday the temperature would normally by +25 or so and clear sky. So pretty hot in the sun for a Swede. Heard it has been an unusual dry winter here and that warmer then normal now. Thought before we got here that it would be much cooler.
Chessnock was a bigger city compared to the other villages we passed, so we could buy all the things we needed to continue our tour.
