Ouch! That must have hurt both physically and mentally. That's really tough.

So we were back home after 2 days ;-(

We planned to cycle for 4 weeks and were not able/ready/willing to visit the country otherwise. As others have mentioned: if the touring is no longer fun, we go home or do something else...
