Where do I want to go?

When you're planning any trip or holidays sometimes you know exactly where you want to go, and what you want to see. Well… that’s not my case! I know the kind of trip that I want to make, and I know which kind of experience, but there’s not only one place to do that. At this time, there’re 3 possibilities for me: north of India, Nepal or Bhutan. The three of them have very rich culture and things to see and are hilly but which one should I take?
Besides the country and things to see there’re other issues, like how difficult it’s to get there, how good guides can I have in one place or the other, and there’re always one more issue, yes you know it, it’s the money!

Well, I don’t know yet which one I’ll take, but I found a picture of a Katmandu street in the Wikipedia that looks like it’s calling me. Can you see why?

Training without noticing it!

This last bank holiday weekend I hadn't schedule any cycling training, so when I met Pilar for the cinema and she told me about a weekend plan in the Peak Dictrict, I joined the team immediately!
The whole weekend was fantastic, featuring local pubs, British breakfasts, palaces, gardens and art, but also some sport! We did a nice walk around Wetton to visit an amazing cave.
The walk was around 10 km long and it was quite hilly at some points, though it was not enough to be considered a real training and lasted for less than 2 hours, I think that everything counts and everything helps!
Now I'm looking forward to come back to the Peak District for some cycling training, and also next Evans Cycling Events.
