We get up early to disassemble Jurjen’s bike for airplane transport as he’s flying back to Amsterdam tomorrow. We walk around Milan to see the city and shop for a new Camera Connection Kit for my iPad. I forgot to take it with me. I hope this is the only thing I forgot. In the evening we have another great meal and have a beer at a bar.

In the morning we say goodbye and I ride along the Garda lake to Venice. The road around the lake is amazing and once again I ride in the dark on the mountain roads to Venice. I tell myself to get up earlier and ride shorter distances as this is getting dangerous.

I park my bike at a secure parking place which is almost as expensive as my hostel. I get a call from the hostel owner who asks where I’m at. He’s going to pick me up from the parking.

I have two roommates in the hostel. Simon, a 50 year old self-employed marketing consultant from Kuala Lumpur and Antonio, a 36 year old architect from Sardinia who has a hard time finding a job in Italy. I exchange name cards with Simon and he tells me to give him a call once I’m in Kuala Lumpur. Antonio and I have a beer and he shows me around Venice and tells me about different building styles.
