Cycling in the Dolomites

For a couple of years now, I’ve been entering the draw for the Maratona dles Dolomites in Italy. There was just something about the Granfondo that had me hooked and I wanted in. I was lucky enough to be one of the 5,000 people selected to take part in the race (out of 32,400 people who had pre-registered for the draw). As happy I was to be selected, I was unable to take part in last year’s race. Luckily the organization let’s you withdraw and transfer the fee for the next year, and that’s what I did. And am I glad that I did. I had the most perfect active holiday last week!

Winter Paradise in Iceland

I realized a couple of weeks ago that I never remembered to write about my second trip to Iceland that I did in January 2017! It was the second photography workshop I ever did, and it was also a trip organized by Erez Marom, as was the Land of Ice workshop I did in 2016.

So, even though it’s been an year, let’s see if I can remember something of the trip. If nothing else, you can see my favorite photos from the trip, haha!

A Night to Remember

Summer vacation is here! Lazy days, warmth, training for yet another triathlon race, and… a sudden surprise trip to London to see Adele? What? O.o

Because of unforeseen and very unfortunate circumstances that had fallen a friend, I found myself holding two tickets to see one of Adele’s Wembley Stadium shows (!!!!). After a mad scramble for hotels, flights and yes, even the one friend to share the night with, I found myself leaving work on Wednesday, June 28, and making my way straight to the airport. London was calling!

Race report: Vanajanlinna 2017

Time flies, and before I knew it, it was race day. My very first triathlon; I was a nervous wreck 😀 It’s always so much easier if you’re doing something for the first time with a friend, but there I was. About to do something nobody in the family has done before, and that apparently also includes the extended family.

750 meters never looked so long. Can you spot all 3 buoys?

Wonderful world of swimming

I love swimming. It’s a fact that has surprised me during the last few months. It’s also one of the reasons I suddenly find myself focusing on only that, and why my cycling rides are not so frequent anymore. I’d rather jump into a pool than go for a ride – a problem I need to fix soon, as I haven’t really gone out on a proper ride in a long while, and my first sprint triathlon is fast approaching! 🙂
