Day 28 Burtoncourt to Kockelscheuer
Well, it rained pretty heavily all night long which meant I didn't sleep very well and didn't wake up until 8! And it was still raining.
Oh well, I'd planned on a bit of a shorter day anyway as the last couple of days had been pretty long.
So I slowly got everything packed up staying in my tent until the last minute.
Amazingly, I was on the road for half 9, so it wasn't so bad.
I needed to get some breakfast and I figured I'd be able to get something in one of the many villages I was to pass through. Wrong!
They were all completely deserted and every time I thought I'd come to a village that might be big enough to sustain a shop I was disappointed.
After 15 miles of twisty country roads, I finally hit a more major road and things were looking up - it had stopped raining for a start!
Almost immediately I came across a "Pain traditionnel epicerie" so I stopped and bought 2 (large) pacs and the longest baguette in the world. I even understood how much the woman asked for, so I gave her the exact money. That was a mistake as she then decided to have a chat. None of which I understood!
Energy levels suitably replenished, I hit the road again.
It immediately started raining again. Oh well, I just kept my rain gear on from then on.
I followed the main road for a bit, but then realised I could nibble a bit off by taking or more minor road.
Of course, just like every other shortcut I've taken, it involved going over some massive hills!
I was pretty tired so stopped after a while and ate my way through what seemed like several feet of baguette.
With a bit of cunning map reading, I worked my way into Luxembourg on the back roads. There was just a small sign to greet me, although the style of road signs changed to a cheery yellow and I got a bit of cycle path action Luxembourg style which was very good.
I found the campsite no problems and it's the complete opposite of last night. It's quite lively, but in a nice sort of way.
It's nice to be finished a bit earlier than usual, so I shall have a relaxing evening and an early night. I shall try and get on WiFi a bit later to upload pics, but for now I am sitting in the sun which has decided to make an appearance!
