Tour de France Blog #4 – First Night – #TourDeJoff

Having arrived at our hotel and taking a shower we decided the best thing to do would be to get drunk. Duly a taxi was ordered and we hit St Malo old town at 11pm.

We realised it was going to be an expensive trip when the taxi cost me €16 to go 4 miles, but upon entering the first pub, an Irish bar, it got worse. €5.20 for a pint of lager. Bugger.

The night went on and we wandered around a bit. St Malo is a lovely place at night…

Finally we ended up at a busy pub full of English football yobs. I went to the bar and ordered 2 pints and was charged €14. Gutted!!

As you can see its not the most appetising pint, but it got me drunk so what the fuck!!

It was about 1:30am so we looked for a taxi… There was none. We had to walk 4.5 miles back to the hotel. As I write the blisters on my feet are still hurting.

So, it was gonna be a hungover Tour de France, but I’m sure it would be worth it…
