5555 km done
Almost 2 weeks have passed since the last blog post. In this time I was able to experience, see and discover a lot. My tendonitis I got with the help of a Portuguese physiotherapist quickly so well under control that I could continue again. I enjoyed Lisbon enormously, as well as the sunny and warm south of Portugal. I drove along the Algarve coast with its breathtaking cliffs, paradisiacal beaches and fantastic sunsets back to Spain. There I enjoyed two more beautiful cities, Sevilla and Malaga. The Costa del Sol lived up to its name and spoiled me with lots of sun. I actually climbed the highest mountain in Spain directly from the sea. That day I left at 4am, first following the coast and then moving on to the mountains of the Sierra Nevada. I left my racing bike in the beautiful mountain village of Capileira and walked the last 2000 meters of altitude. Shortly before sunrise I reached the summit of the 3492 meter high Mulhacén. A magical moment with many emotions, strong wind and a breathtaking view over the whole country of Spain and as far as Africa. My journey continued via Granada to the capital Madrid, where thanks to an invitation I could finally take a shower and wash my clothes after far too long. Meanwhile Valencia is behind me and I am on my way to Barcelona, Andorra, South of France and should make it back to Switzerland until Christmas..
