Day 13 – Ornans to Lausanne

Good day – 105km in hilly terrain. Paul and Treena were right, the climb out of the valley from Ornans was really nicely gradiented, I didn’t use my ‘granny’ gear once all day. Climbed to 1046m (3431ft), and crossed the north sea – mediterranean watershed. Got a stamp in my passport going into Switzerland, and found the campsite in Lausanne.

Other notes from today – I changed the rear tyre. The sidewall was splitting in 6 places, with the biggest two joining up.
– Special thanks need to go to Jo and Alex. Wherever in Europe/Australia you are now, travelling for the couple of days with you really picked up my spirits and got my on my feet. Thank you.
– My beer gut is gone, and my legs are huge now!
– It feels really good finally crossing an international border.
