Videos from a glacier
Well, we’ve been very busy cycling the last few days and had a big backlog of things to put online! In the last day we’ve added a week of posts to the site and also managed to upload a couple videos to share with you. They are both from a day we spent in a most amazing region, the Serra da Estrela mountain range in Portugal. We had never seen a valley carved out by a glacier before and this was one of the most beautiful areas we’ve been through yet on our trip. The first video gives just a taste of how hard it was to drag our bikes (and yes, drag is most definitely the right word) up the mountain, and also some of the gorgeous scenery. The second video shows you the surprise hailstorm that came upon us in the early evening as we camped in a little picnic park, near a glacial lake.
