Le retour aux sources

Here we go. These two last weeks were the occasion to celebrate about 7 times my birthday and my departure with a maximum of friends. As always, I can’t see all of them… Since Sunday I’m came back with my family. After three wonderful years to Bayonne, it wasn’t easy. All my friends missing me. But it’s my way. A round trip is not without some difficulties. It’s necessary to move forward to enrich my personal live. Moreover it’s just a “goodbye” for one and a half years. I will comme back in France, to Bayonne especially, to see all of them!

Come back to house’s parents it’s wired. I don’t feel at home. Since 5 years, it will be the first time I’ll stay more than 4 days at home since I’ve my baccalaureate. I need to adapt few days again.

Now I prepare my last formalities (doctor, insurrance, dentist). Yesterday nigth I bought my backpack thanks to the advices of the last lonely planet book: “La Bible du grand Voyageur“. It was written by Nans Thomassey, one of the two guys in the broadcast “Nus et Culottés” on France 5.

My aunt has helped me too. As she walks a lot since many years, she’s a brilliant adviser. She told me to go to Lyon to buy my backpack in the specialized shop “Au vieux Campeur“. So I bought a Osprey Aether 60 backpack and I ‘ll test it after tomorrow for a short mountain bike trip with my young brother Maxime for 2 days.

Also I bought a Polar RS800CX with G5 GPS. This watch is a real coach to check my body over my trannings and also it has a GPS which record my position each 1, 2 or 5 seconds (depends settings). This function will be more usefull for my future tracks to register they on a map. I’m testing it and I’ll publish a post about it later.
