... ride made for soar legs. The scenery was incredible, the most impressive bike ride we have ever done. We stopped regularly for water stops and to take in the amazing surroundings. At one point we were surrounded by hundreds of goats, who were very inquisitive of our bikes, lol. The last 10k of the ride dragged which was not good when you were on your last legs!!

Definitely head down to your local ...
... perso le foto di questi ultimi giorni, e ho dato l'ennesima occasione a Nina per prendermi in giro per alcuni mesi a venire. Se sia solo distrazione passeggera, o l'inesorabile età che avanza che comincia a dare i suoi segni, rimane da vedersi; vedremo quante cose perderò nei prossimi mesi e poi faremo i conti alla fine.
E così anche questo Natale è passato, un po' accidentato ma tutto sommato piacevole. Facciamo i bagagli, appesantiti dai regali ma alleggeriti dalla mia ...
