I know this blog has been lying dormant for some years now, as I decided to have a hiatus from it when I thought that the cyclist’s days of cycling were coming to an end.
Bahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahaha! What a fool I was for believing that! Here we are, three years on and not only is he still cycling, but he is doing it as a full time job……….still. The cycling days are far from over!
So cycling continues to dominate our lives and now sees us now bridging not one, but two countries. While the cyclist is based in Spain, my work sees me based in Australia. That’s the very watered down version of how we came to be living in different countries, but the decision making process around that continues to toy with me on a daily basis as it’s not an easy thing being apart for long periods at a time. And so it is, that I find myself at the airport as I write this, about to board to go and see my love after way too long!
It has been 161 days since we last saw each other. We have never spent this long apart and I am feeling like a combination between a giddy lovesick teenager and someone who is about to go and see an old flame after many years. My tummy is full of butterflies and I cannot wipe this goofy grin off my face, no matter how hard I try. It’s not a bad way to feel.
So as I embark on this journey, I thought it would be timely to resuscitate this blog and share a bit more of our journey with those that are interested.
