Dublin to Copenhagen - Sweating through Holland

Dublin to Copenhagen - Day 6

Dublin to Brighton

Goals for the day

  • Make flight from Dublin to Bristol
  • Get train from Bristol to Southampton
  • Book car rental for Thorpe Park trip tomorrow
  • Cycle from Southampton to Brigthon and stay with Amy for 2 days

Noteable Moments

  • Wake up on coach 10 minutes late for my bus
  • Rush to get ready, end up not packing half the things I wrote down to get in Dublin
  • Make the next aircoach, quite busy and figure its taking to long, so hop off after 5 minutes to get taxi
  • Get to the airport 35 minutes before my flight departs
  • Manage to get through security quickly and make it to gate just in time
  • Sleep for the whole flight
  • Arrive in Bristol and collect bike from storage and proceed to catch train to Southampton
  • 8 bikes on a 3 carriage train makes for a cosy fit
  • Arrive in Southampton and head off for Brighton
  • Stop in Littlehampton to grab lunch in Lidl and sit beside the harbour
  • Decide to sprint to Brighton, see how fast I can do it, only to be halted in Goring-By-Sea due to a front puncture
  • 15km to Brighton, requires taking the front rack and mud guards partly off (and I still don't have a pump). Decide I'll run instead
  • Cover 5km before Charles from South Africa flags me down and offers me a lift in his van with his wife. Thank you Charles for going out of your way to give me a lift all the way
  • Arrive in Brighton and head to the apartment and order Thai for dinner with Amy and Anna
  • Head to the train station that night to meet Conor when he arrives
