Hey folks. My first ever tour starts a week tomorrow when I embark on 1500 miles from Cheltenham, UK to Palombaro, Italy. My route takes me through nine and a half countries and over The Alps, I'll be wild camping and staying in hotels along with one call at a warm showers host and a night at a friend's house. I'm in equal parts excited and terrified by this imminent adventure...!
If you more experienced tourers had one piece of advice to impart what would it be...???
