I am preparing for an adventure bike tour of Italy. I will be riding the South-Eastern coast (heel of the boot). The pictures are amazing! I have been training physically for months now – certainly not as much as I should have. I do feel strong and confident. The trip is with Trek Tours and top-notch all the way! Puglia Italy Bike Tour.
Leaving the country is such an ordeal. I guess preparing for any trip can be challenging. I am lucky that Andrea has been to Italy before and we are seeing some unique places. My Mother was kind enough to donate her air miles so that I was able to fly Business Class both ways – THANK YOU Mom! That will be a real treat.
I have done two other biking adventure tours similar to this one. I did Portugal several years and Spain last year. It is an amazing way to see the country and engage with the people. Cyclists are treated a bit more gently over there than in the USA.
My stress level is at 10,000 on a scale of 1 – 10! Leaving my boyfriend, my 13-year-old puppy, my business, my home, and my income is “Cra-Cra”. It will be amazing and fun but, these people and things will be in the back of my mind every minute of every day I am gone. Such a push/pull.
