Our Weekend, Week 7

So, a long wonderful week in the sun has sadly come to an end.

We went out for a long ride on Friday. It was the perfect weather, about 25°C in the sunshine and not too much wind. We had planned to do a 100 km ride (and Jason’s ride). The feeling of getting out in the fresh air and to move your muscles was particularly great this day. We know that we had a 4 hour ride in front of us and we were stopping for lunch halfway, as well as having our raspberry and mint rice cakes along the way.

The first part of the ride was quite flat, but then we got to a long climb, about 7 km long. The rest of the way was downhill and then flat. We were not the only ones thinking the weather was great for cycling, when we stopped for lunch we saw a large group of female cyclists.

In the evening we went enjoyed the sunset from the roof with a bottle of Cava before going out for dinner at an Italian restaurant. The perfect way to end our week.

Yesterday, (Valentine’s day! ❤ ) we got up early to see the sunrise and were saddened by the fact that we were going home to the cold again 😦

We then had to pack up our bikes and head to the airport. When we came home we were very tired and made a quick dinner before bed.

This morning we had a lie in and then we have spent the whole day unpacking our bikes, preparing what to make for dinners next week, doing our weekly shopping, and making bars, granola, and kimchi. We made two different types of bars, both of which will be on the blog tomorrow.

For dinner tonight we made Korean steamed buns with sticky tofu, kimchi mayonnaise, kimchi, and pickled cucumber and radish.
