Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Aiming for the sun…

So enjoyable to wake up at 5am after only 3hours of sleep…only when you know that you are going to travel south and get some sun… it is ALL worth it. Missed my tram to the airport (well, IT did not come as planned). Finally checked-in, got a warm soy chocolate for waking up a bit the brain and then it was time to take-off… Don’t ask how it went, I was already sleeping! Woke up after 2hours of flight and tested the flight wifi: terrific! Could even email, check discussion on running forums, sending pic from the skies… and we were landing already! Luggage, bus and guest house. Quite not what was expected from the outside, nor the inside, but satisfied with the little room I get with a little tiny room to eat in (would it have had a place to cook or warm (on the top of having a micro wave) it would have been perfect!). But all-in-all, the first hours were spent in unpacking, checking a bit where I was and off with the Swedish clothes, and on with suncream and outfit suited for Spanish weather. Headed to the beach, buying a freshly backed half-baguette and filled it with ham and got a coke as well (let’s be crazy, shall we?! 😉 ) At the beach, it was pretty loaded of people already – Sunday it is! Got a nice spot anyway and just started to mimic the lezards. Annoying enough to have wind at home, this afternoon was also full with light wind (enough to be annoying but not enough to get one cold). After a few hours sunbathing, headed towards the large supermarket I noticed when sitting in the airport bus. Unfortunately not all countries are like Sweden with shops opened on Sundays… So checking the opening hours for tomorrow, I headed back to the hotel, using the road the airport bus took (and which I found “Wow, THAT is HILLY!”, but actually not that difficult. So planning to have it at least twice as run during the week. Back at the hotel, shower to get rid of the sand, after-sun cream (especially on the nose which tend to make me look like a clown…) and back to the beach where I got my dinner (crêpe con jamòn y qeso y gaufre con nutella) – Yummy it was! Hopefully the cheese won’t be a problem for my tummy though. Really enjoying to be down here, where one can be out at 8pm and still having 20+ºC outside… On the way back home, found a really nice shop selling ALL kind of ice cream (see pic below)… definitely a stop or two before the end of the week!

Now it is VERY late and I am sooo tired. Time to switch off the Spanish lights! GOOD FULL DAY OF REAL REST…

  1. Röd bougainvillea?
    Om du har problem med ost varför inte då även glass?
    KFC kan även betyda Kentucky Fried Chicken men du gav ju det själv en ny betydelse tack vare…

      > Vet inte gällande ost vs glass. Men så är det. Magen tycker inte om vissa saker bara. Men denna gången gick det bra. Måste testa glasserna nu!
      > Idén kommer inte från mig gällande KFC!
