Spain – Day 10

This was one of my favorite days in Barcelona.  It was unstructured!  We spent the day looking at the people, eating at random places, and no time schedules.  We had Sangria and a wonderful pasta dinner in a beautiful square with several restaurants and street performers.  I was still hungry so went went to the … More Spain – Day 10

Spain – Day 9

Metro-Train-Cable Car; this happened!  It took us a while to figure it out, but we did it!  We took the Metro to the Train station, the Train to Montserrat, and a cable car to Montserrat Monastery.  The views are breath-taking.  It was easily the highest altitude I have ever been. We had a wonderful lunch … More Spain – Day 9

Spain – Day 8

Barcelona is so different than Majorca.  We went from island time to big, congested city.  I had no idea my friend was such a “planner”.  We got off the plane and hit the ground running!  She had every moment planned.  It was exhausting.  HELP ME! Spiral staircase.  My friend all proud of her organizational skills! … More Spain – Day 8

Spain – Day 7

   Today was our last ride in Majorca.  It was a tough 38 mile ride.  Beautiful and amazing as always.  As much fun as I have had on the bike, it will be nice to take a break for a few days.  Then, back to spin classes and the amazing flat lands of Dallas. Lunch … More Spain – Day 7

Spain – Day 6

 Today we only did 22 miles.  It was fun and I am really getting stronger, fast.  We revisited several places that we have already seen.  The village at the top of the mountain was one of those places.  After lunch, we climbed those 365 steps!  Look what was at the top.        We got … More Spain – Day 6

Spain – Day 5

  Okay, I wimped out!  I decided to do the 35 mile ride instead of the full-incline 40 mile ride today.  It was fabulous!  My friend did the big ride and she has stories to tell.  She is getting a free t-shirt that says; “I rode Legro’s Big One”.   Gordon was my team leader … More Spain – Day 5

Spain – Day 4

Today was our resting, casual, light ride day.  Only 32 miles.  The reason we are doing the light ride today is that tomorrow is supposed to be crazy hard.  I keep wavering on weather or not to do it.  My friend really wants to go and our team leader keeps telling me I can do … More Spain – Day 4

Spain -Day 3

  Today was market day with an afternoon hike.  When you first approach the market, it resembles traditional flea markets back home.  As soon as you see the vendors you notice something very different about it.  These are the people that live in Majorca.  They are farmers, artists, and retailers trying to earn a living … More Spain -Day 3

Spain – Day 2

We did 40 miles on a bike today! It was so amazing. The people of Majorca are so kind and patient with bikers. We started out from the hotel and slowly ascended a mountain to an altitude of 663 ft. Okay, small mountain. It was beautiful. There are fields of artichokes and onions everywhere. On … More Spain – Day 2
