Woke up early and decided to depart at 07:00 due to the longer distance today. Leaving a big city is always a hassle because of traffic, but after a while I was greeted by mountain of the day (TM). It was a beautiful climb with magnificent views of the many islands around.
Coming back down, my master level mapping skills failed me, since my route told me to take a turn, but there was no road, which made me do an extra loop in the mountains. No harm done.
After descending from the mountain I was again surrounded by astonishing island views for hours before entering inland.
After that I was following various country roads, which weren’t very nice or scenic. Also made a mistake of entering a busy road with lots of truck traffic, which was quite stressful.
I made it to Fukuoka at around 15:30 and was feeling it. After getting myself organized I went out and massively over ate. But it was all worth it.
Tomorrow is 100-140km depending how I feel and then time for the first rest day.
