I start to feel like myself again!
Today we had to pick our scooter up from the shop in Benidorm, and we made that into an active day in stead of what it could have been; taking the car there, picking the scooter up and going home again.
What we did was this:
Went for a long walk by the beach and up in a nature park called "Sierra Helada" where I have never gone before and it was wonderful and a bit unrealistic.
We started from the bus station in Benidorm. Through the old town with a lot of shops and cafés, down to the beach (a lot of people sunbathing today).
Walked all along the Levante beach where the Little England
is with all their pubs. Saw as many drunken englishmen as I could take!
From there we left the beach and went up hill and the world changed as we turned to the park.
It was quiet and relaxing. The only ones there where people enjoying the beautiful day, and seagulls hanging in the air above us. When we reached the old tower at the end of the track we had the med sea in front and on both sides of us, and the mountain behind us.
It felt like we had come in to another world and that the busy Benidorm was not only a couple of km away.
We stood there breathing in the salty air looking at the sea for a minute and then we headed back to get the scooter and go home. My steptracker tells me we walked 16 km today. Not bad for a lazy monday!
