Checking the dates of when I last posted a blog (1st August 2017), it’s almost a year since I wrote anything. I assure you my life hasn’t been stationary, I’ve just not had energy, interest or motivation to write. It’s now (2nd June 2018), I’m going to try and repopulate some of the highlights of this past year. I assure you it could be mistaken that I live a glamorous life 2017 was one of the most depressing years of my life.
Hike to Tibidabo with Teaching Folk
A few weeks ago, I heard from Tamara who invited me on a birthday hike from Sant Cugat to Tibidabo. I hadn’t heard/seen from her since Christmas and felt it was high time I caught up.
As usual with Tamara, the hike to Tibidabo with teaching folk would be a thing as most of her friends are English teachers also.
Well, we met at a reasonable time in the morning in Sant Cugat by the station and immediately started with the hard task of a sit-down coffee and chat. :-) After we all had gathered and got our energies up, we set off on the strenuous task of ambling to Tibidabo. We set off as a group of around 9 of us (correct me if I am wrong), which made for good diverse conversations along the way. The weather was great, maybe if anything a little too warm but that’s expected for the time of year and our current latitude.
One thing I’ve had on my side this past time I’ve been in Spain has been health, despite many injuries and ailments my health has been unlike ever before, I’ve been training a lot and taking care of myself as much as I can. As with all things physical the more you do the more you want to do and the more likely you are to get injured. Thus the injuries, however, this particular day, I was feeling top form. The walk was akin to taking a stroll to the supermarket, I’m conscious compared with other times in my life.
The day before I had prepared a banana cake for Tamara’s birthday and was carrying that to share with everyone, it came in very nice during our lunch stop.
