Keeping Things Dry

We've had such lovely weather lately and I've been imagining our forthcoming cycling trip happening in brilliant sunshine.  But it may not be like that at all.  Can still remember a downpour once in Greece, when despite waterproofs etc. my wallet got so saturated that I had to spread all my money out to dry when I got back.

I've just found a site called Aquapac which sells waterproof everything. I don't know what the quality is like but from the site it certainly looks like the business.  Will be taking my trusty old cyling cape but think I'll invest in one of the pouches for the phone.


  1. You have me envying you. Alas, my cycling days are over. Never did take to the cape, though. There always seemed to be a head wind when I wore it. Best wishes for the trip.

  2. thanks for coming over and visiting my I get to meet you and see yours! What a fun and lovely blog. Love the photography and your travels!

  3. Hope you keep dry. Nothing worse than cycling in the rain. Not that I cycle any more.

  4. That's a very cool red shot awhile ago.

  5. I've sworn by Ortlieb for years, for proper waterproof roll-top bags, but just recently we found some incredible ones in Aldi for 7.99 (a LOT cheaper). We used them in Greenland and didn't have a single leak. They come in around once a year, so it may be worth keeping an eye out in future, even though you might not be able to get your hands on one in time for this trip.

  6. Cycling in the rain would suck
    Have me saying oh what bad luck
    Ha thought I'd say something else that rhymed with that
    Nope as I can be a toned down cat
    Nice read you have here
    As I come to peer

  7. Oh wow - What a great travel blog. I love your header picture. Will be back to see where you go next and am joining you as a follower. Lovely photos.
