The Historian - Unworthy of touring??? Can't help but comment on your current by-line.

Put things in perspective and don't worry about what anyone else thinks. You want to go home, go home! That doesn't mean you won't and can't go on to enjoy other tours. Go where you want to go, cycle at the pace that is comfortable for you, and don't think you are a lesser person because your ambitions or achievements don't equal someone else's. If you are having fun touring, you will go again, and if it ceases to be fun or is physically inappropriate to continue you can go home. Worthiness in your own eyes is all that counts. Don't judge yourself by someone else's criteria.

cheers
