I LOVED Asturias, Spain, and I know that other cyclists and walkers will too! Here's why:

The Coastal Path in Asturias, Spain is a 65km long path with breathtaking views. It's an undiscovered paradise for both cyclists and walkers!

You'd love to travel more, but you don't have enough money! That was my situation of university with $28,000 in student loans, but I still travelled for 2 1/2 years!

When is the last time you saw a spaghetti tree? When so much of our diet is unrecognizable in nature, foraging for wild food re-connects us with nature.

I enjoyed cycling the "Rail Trail" in Costa Brava, Spain which follows an old railway route, with lots of tappas stops at traditional Catalonian villages.

#bike #biking #cycle #cycling #Catalonia #Catalunya #CostaBrava #Spain
Cycling ia great way to explore the hidden gems in Costa Brava, Spain. It will also help work off all that delicious Catalan food that you'll be eating!

I love this part of Spain! It's a paradise for nature lovers!
A visit to pristine Basque Country may be the remedy if you're a stressed out multi-tasking urban dweller in need of some serious rejuvenation!

This is a great day in the Bavarian Alps that offers great views of the Walchensee (lake). There's no hut at the top, but you'll find plenty of places to eat when you're finished around the lake.

The Jochberg is a popular day hike in the German Alps with views of both the Walchensee and the Kochelsee. You should go!
