For the second time i don't pay for sleeping and if there would be more or more accessible lakes or rivers i'd do that all the time as my only needs are a flat place for my tent and some water to wash. The day before yesterday i slept on the property of the farmer Dick Bush near Henley under a huge oak tree and a nearby architecture office(Inside a farm building) offered me to use their bathroom which i gladly accepted. Today i swam in a sidearm of the river Avon which was pretty cold and with muddy grounds, but this cheered me up again.
B&B, charging 19£ for their campsite(4m² flat space and a hot shower where my needs) due to the AONB-tag(But i was desparate and accepted). Well, in Tyrol there's also a nice landscape but the campsite-prices are still reasonable :-P
From there, on the next morning, i followed the advice of the architects and used a sideroad to Oxford which was just as good and much more direct as the dedicated cyclepaths i had used till then. I will (and have) continue(d) using the usual sideroads from now on, its just not to easy to find good maps in England.
