In less than 5 months, in her round birthday, a participant of full IRONMAN in Australia. On a daily basis, she and her husband run a company and train intensively. She uses her free time for travel. Together they have already visited all continents except Antarctica.
I have the pleasure of combining two passions: sport and learning about interesting places :-) Being the fourth day in Tenerife, I have not seen the hotel beach or the promenade yet. I was also not shopping. But I rode a bus with a bicycle on my lap. I did probably my longest bicycle driveway...
Only uphill 21 km, 1500 m increase. Along the way, I encountered the most beautiful places that will always remain in my memory. Trying to stop at snapping a photo, and then going uphill, would not be the best idea. I was driving serpentine with a slope of 16%, and the views were breathtaking with the power of x100.
When you ride a bicycle high above the clouds and are alone with yours thoughts and breathtaking views, and the silence is disturbed only by accelerated breathing and the noise of circles … When tourists traveling by bus open the window and clap in appreciation, then you can be very proud of yourself. You came here by bike! Chapeau bass!
And in addition, I swam on the most beautiful pool, under the sun of Tenerife.
