Warsaw to Vilnius: Day # 1
My first day from Warsaw to Vilnius was full of cottony clouds and sunshine. The angry tires from the zillion trucks which passed by left me coated in exhaust fumes and with a sinus headache. After about 8 hours on the bike, I stopped at a truck stop for a shower and an excellent Polish beer. Soon after, I tucked into a forest near Szumowo, Poland. There I had a meal of Polish sausages, bread, with local forest mushrooms, blueberries, which I purchased from a roadside stand (picture). Forest moss made my bed comfortable and the sound of the evening rain coaxed me into a sound-full sleep.
