Biking Bad

A travel blog entry by sacker33


... what would I do if this were the amazing race?

Not recognizing anything around us, I fear we aren't even half way back. We've been walking the bikes up the hill, and I would sit and coast down the hill. I had put the seat all the way down so I could use my feet to push it along like a scooter. Not as easy to control one handed.

The heat on the beach was like being in an slow cooker...but there was a
breeze. The heat of the road was like being in ...

Get Up! Stand Up!

... zipline, and it was just nonstop from there… no hanging about, almost a pun, after ziplining one line, we landed on the platform, lifted up to get unhooked, and then straight off the same platform onto the next one. Such a buzz!

The recent rains had clouded up the water, ...

A travel blog entry by blondesontour


... at the best of times let alone the last couple of drinks of the night! In the end I walked back with Laura, Tom and Matt their friend as Tom was MEANT to walk me all the way home to mine. Drama got in the way though as neither of them had their keys apparently. Matt decided to break in from the back being chased by a pack of dogs and scaling a wall with barbed wire on the top. He came and opened the door for us and we realised he was basically spewing blood from his arms and we ...
