This Christmas finds me well away from any family (immediate or extended) for the first time - I'm still not sure exactly how I came to be living in Canada. Never mind, it was a great rushed decision - I thoroughly enjoyed a summer chocked full of mountain-biking (& a little hiking). Now winter is slowly rolling around - well, it's cold but there's not all that much snow yet; so the next few months of skiing promise to be almost as good. For those that haven't been keeping up with my ramblings here are a few of the many highlights of 2010 for me.
- Five weeks of vacation in Canmore with Adele & good friends - obviously it was good, or else I wouldn't have come back for twelve months.
- Ten days in Madrid & further south exploring & conversing with Spaniards trying to overcome their Spanglish.
- Many many days spent exploring London & spending time with friends & family.
- As mentioned before - the Canadian riding. Best ride of the summer goes to Jumpingpound Ridge/Cox Hill with notable mentions for the Prospector & Razor's Edge.
Still being distracted, damn it.
