Lanzarote

My week in Club La Santa has come and gone and I had sooooo much fun. It was hilly, hot and windy and I was trying to chase and stay on the wheels of 11 men and oh, boy, did I suffer. But I had so much fun doing it. Here is just a bit of it in pictures:

The Deal Tri Team - I am the second one from the left:



This is what my view was most of the time:



And as they speed up, I get left behind



Finally on the top - and the guys are waiting :))))



The guys looked after me so well and I am so grateful. They admitted that they were a bit apprehensive about me coming along (as it always used to be "all male" camp purely because none of the ladies wanted to go) but we got along so well that I became an honorary "one of the blokes".

FUN!! Looks hot and hilly. :) Great to hear how much you enjoyed yourself. And of course you can hold your own with the "blokes". :)

Awesome! Looks like a great time and sometimes there's no better compliment than being considered one of the guys, or "blokes."
