As you can see, we are looking totally stressed out about our damage settlement with Air Transat. Actually, we're having a very mellow July, and we enjoyed a lovely week at the beach at Port Burwell on Lake Erie. It did take some work on my part to put together the paperwork (letters, bills, etc) for our damage claim for two bikes. It was quite disappointing to see the amount of damage to my bike and to Matthew's bike. If I had any advice to give to other bike travellers, it would be to rent hard cases for bike travel. The cardboard boxes could not withstand the return flight mishandling. Now it's back to more relaxing, reading, writing, and sand castle building.
