Mileage: 0 (!!)
Today we took the opportunity to do no cycling, since we had nowhere in paticular to be, and it was ridiculously windy. Kirkwall is a lovely town on the main island of Orkney, with a particularly beautiful Church of Scotland cathedral, and we thoroughly enjoyed wandering round seeing the sights.
Meanwhile, on the food front, we were scandalised to wake up this morning to find our eggs, milk and leftover curry gone from the communal hostel fridge! Extremely bad form on someone's part - or so we thought, until it was pointed out to us that we had mistakenly/exhaustedly left our food on the "help yourself" shelf. Lesson learned. Dinner was pasta and extremely tasty Scottish pancakes. Carbohydrates are goooood.
