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..
Adventurer and athlete, soon bikepacking through europe, climbing the highest mountain and visiting the most beautiful cities in every of the 47 countries!
