This is a very special award that we’ve dreamed up during our long hours in the saddle thinking of nothing inparticular. It’s an award that was inspired by an act of generosity this morning at the campsite in Budapest. Norma, our neighbour from Cheshire, who’s touring Europe with her hubby Tony, brought us a pot of Yorkshire Tea directly to the door of the tent. We were impressed and moved enough to photograph it just before we drank it. It also undoubtedly wins the ‘Cup Of Tea Of The Month’ Award’. Thanks a lot Norma and it was a pleasure to meet you both and all the best for the rest of your tour. Chris and Janyis

Our final stretch of the tour took us north through Bordeaux and the Dordogne to the Loire, before we crossed the Loire into northern France and back to Dieppe. We covered a total of 4,450 miles (7,160 km) and our legs hurt...
