Cycling trip from France to Croatia: 950 miles in 14 days

Hello, I am quite new in the world of bike touring, and I wanted to share my experience with you :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkojBG4K1D4

It’s a 5mn long video clip, with music and commentaries (in French, but subtitled in English).
If you like it, you can share the link.
I’ll be happy to get any feedback.

Bien fait, Tancrede. J'aime bien ta honnetete.

Selon ta carte, t'as suivi la cote entre Nice et Genova. C'est l'enfer a velo. Il faut faire un 2eme tour quelque part en suivant des petites routes. Ca, c'est le paradis.

Fabulous video. It felt like one of my own tours yet I've never ridden in the places you rode.

How much more bother was it to shoot video then to just take photos with a still camera?

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks a lot for your feedbacks! I appreciate.

@raybo : it was not that much bothering to shoot videos in fact. It was a purpose for me to take a bit of rest, and think of something else than pedaling.
@axolotl : yes, the road between nice and Genova is not that good for bikes. But on the italian side, there is quite a lot of cycling paths (about 50 kms), following the see, and I must say : I was very surprised to find such cycling roads in Italia

nice filming and editing. Too bad you had to be on such busy roads, secondary routes are the way to go if you can.

felicitations de Montreal

très bien fait

and yes driver mentality changed noticably for me too as I went from west to south/east, in Germany everyone gives you huge amounts of space even if you're on a busy main road (they look at you funny though)
czech republic/hungary was much less fun
