We started the new year with a trip to Nerja, Spain in order to visit my sister-in-law and to see her newly purchased apartment. We’ve had 6 great days in Spain and enjoyed being away from home and just relaxed and gathered energy. Of course we’ve had lots of tasty tapas too!
Tomorrow it’s time to go back to work after 3 weeks of vacation. I’m quite eager to get into the normal daily life again, although it’s been very nice not having to wake up at 5.15 every morning. 🙂 Pretty soon life will be busy and stressful again and then I will remember this fantastic view. Can it get any better?
It’s time to say goodbye. We’ve checked out and are waiting for the bus to take us to the airport.
It has been a fantastic week. Sunny and warm most of the time. I’ve tried new types of exercises and have lots of motivation to continue on when I get home. I’ve also meet many new friends.
I could definitely have stayed a little longer in this climate but I’m looking forward to come home and see my hubby again.
Today has been an extremely windy day. This morning when we had Qi gong on the beach it was hard to keep the balance. It’s hard to keep the balance even without the wind so it was quiet challenging during some of the poses. I really like Qi gong and plan to continue with it when I get home.
I think my joints don’t appreciate the wind though because today I have had pain in several places. That has never happened during vacations to warmer climates before. I decided that I’d skip the afternoon exercises and only attended the two “lectures”, one about functional training and the other about staying motivated.
Tonight was the last night for some of the people so we had a little goodbye mingle and said adios. All trainers lined up for a photo session.
There was a triathlon competition at the resort (and the island) today and we watched some of the competitors at the finish line.
This morning when we woke up we decided that we would take it easy today as yesterday was a very ruff day! After a spinning class and a dance class my hip did not appreciate life. Luckily I did not have any issues with it this morning but thought I better give it a break from exercising.
The afternoon we spent in a bus together with most of the other people in our group. We visited three places on Fuerteventura. First off was a aloe vera factory.
Next was the medieval town of Betancuria. On our way there we passed a fantastic view point towards the ocean.
Our last stop of the day was in a small fishing village where the have caves by the water. Lots of steps to get there but a very cool place so totally worth the effort!
On our way back to the hotel three goodie bags where given out and I happened to win one of them! 🙂
