This is the second installment in a series describing two credit card bike tours through France by Banjo Brothers Co-Founder Eric Leugers. To read part one, click here. This is also a rolling journal. We are adding content every few days with fresh photos and commentary from Eric. Enjoy.
If you are lucky and work hard enough you save enough extra cash to spend on a dream vacation. For me that dream was a months-long bike tour in France. Finding the free time to do it was another matter – my own experience had been either having either time or money, but not simultaneously. So it was after working for 6 years after college, paying off my school loans and a car – I was rich by my standards but had 15 days of vacation/sick time per year. I then made the somewhat irrational plan to quit my job in the Spring of 1996 and tour through France for 3+ months.
