So back in July I was given the opportunity of a lifetime, to go compete in the World Championship Long Distance Triathlon in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. This was one of the highlights of my year. the course was made up of a 4km swim,120km bike ride and 30km run. I was only racing as an age grouper for South Africa but to race on the same course as some of the best triathletes the world has to offer was an amazing experience. here are a few pics of our race.
Instead of going all the way there for 6 days we decided to turn it into a holiday and to make Jordy's first overseas experience a memorable one. 3 weeks, 8 cities, 3 countries, 56 hours of travel and it was our best holiday ever! this is how it went - PE - JHB - Istanbul - Bilboa - Vitoria-Gasteiz - San Sebastian - Hendaye - Paris - Milan - Florence - Rome/Fiumicino
Any form of travel there is - we travelled it! and what makes it even better is our boy is a natural at being on the move! here are just a few pics of our travels - i took over 1000 pictures and there is no way i can upload them all!
Before we left - people were asking how are you going to travel with a one year old - quite frankly i didn't know - i was so nervous about taking him with but my darling husband wouldn't have it any other way. He either came with or there was no holiday. Looking back now, our holiday wouldn't have been the same without him. He made it worthwhile and so much fun!
