Day 323 (Indonesia – Sumbawa Day 5)

It was nice having a day off the bike today. I finally managed to activate my Citibank card so I am now once again able to access cash from overseas ATMs without paying extra fees. Despite such success, I am otherwise in major trouble. My bum blisters are concerning. I can’t sit without excruciating pain. I can’t walk without moderate pain. I can’t sleep without minor pain (even when in my only available sleeping position, which is flat on my stomach). I’m not sure what I should do. I can either sit around…actually scratch that…I can stand around for a few days and wait for it to heal, or I can push on despite the agony and force it to heal more slowly. I don’t like the idea of waiting around doing nothing, so I think if I can put up with the pain, then I will just keep on riding.

      The worst! I am realising that a good bum is one the most valuable things during a trip. An entire journey can be ruined by a few blisters. Be sure to look after yours!
