.....The BiKeWriTeR


Melanie Bastin from Buckingham, and Gemmajean Jones from London are sisters and the campground partiers. Amazing the difference in dialects and slang terms.

They asked me about my bike tour and I said I had a hard day and had bonked about five miles out of town at a gas station.

“You bonked at a gas station?” said Gemmajean.

I said I did, and after 15 minutes I felt better.

“Well, of course you did,” she said.

I was not catching on, but older sister, Melanie, was the one who deciphered that bonking did not mean the same in English.

OMG, I feel like I’m getting a real education on this tour!
