I have been a member of Warmshowers for quite some time, in preparation for my attempt to cycle completely around the world. As a first time cycle tourist and not a regular cyclist, I’m happy with my cycle through the UK, St-Malo in France down to San Sebastian in Spain, San Sebastian to Valencia via Madrid, then up the coast to Marseille in Southern France.
Due to major mechanical breakdown that was only repairable by my returning to the UK under warranty, the Rohloff gearing is now restored and I will be returning to Marseille on the 1st of March 2018 to continue on.
I will then be taking the ferry from Toulon to Sardinia, and up to Corsica, then over the Livorno Italy and all the way down the coast to Greece, over to Turkey, Cyprus then India.
Oh, my question. Having never stayed with anyone before, I have no idea how to go about it. Do I start asking days or weeks in advance? I’m a little shy you see, but think Warmshowers is a great idea.
All the best everyone on this Christmas day.
