20th Anniversary European Bike Adventure: Day 21+, Stockholm to Chicago to Austin

And so we awoke on our final day in order to begin our journey home. Our flight was at 10:20am, so I think we got up around 5am. Which wasn't a challenge, since that's when our bodies had been wanting to get up for several weeks now, due to time zone confusion and an excess of ambient light.

20th Anniversary European Bike Adventure: Day 20, Stockholm

I slept in as much as I could, then rolled out of bed and sllooowwly got ready.. to run! I had packed running shorts and hoped that I might run in the cities we spent more time in (Amsterdam, Oslo, Stockholm), but didn't manage to actually get a run in until day 20, the last full day of our vacation. That one run totally justified me hauling the shorts across 6 countries. (Had I actually remembered I had them, I would have worn them on some of the laundry days, instead of wearing regular shorts without underwear while the laundry was happening. Alas.)
