Picos da Europa expedition 2015: day 5

The night was calm and re-energizing. The hotel uses a generator for electricity that is shut down at mid-night. After that moment, absolute silence! Only the sound of the wind persists. Some adventurous fellows stayed up and made some nice night sky images. I’ll have to come back to this amazing place and stay here a bit longer for those types of images…
Now was the day for the high mountain glorious sunrise… or was it?

Picos da Europa expedition 2015: day 2

The morning started early: after 3 hours of deep and fast sleep, the alarm clock went of at 5:00. And what a shock that was! The big difference I immediately felt was that after the milliseconds it took for me to acknowledge where I was and remembering what I was there to do, it took me no time to jump out of bed, grab a quick snack and some coffee from my thermal bottle and there I was – ready to rock and roll!

Picos da Europa expedition 2015: day 1

As I start writing this new set of posts, less than 24 hours have gone by since arriving from the expedition. I am being completely honest with you when I say that I still miss the words for accurately describing the sensations I came across during these last 5 days. I guess somethings are really to be felt and not put in words. Very few have the ability to transpose this and I’m certainly not one of them. Please bear that in mind while reading the remaining posts of this series.

Picos da Europa expedition 2015: T-3 days

A post that considers bot the T-4 and T-3 days.

Yesterday, a day mostly dedicated to the family, with a final shopping points in the way (some snacks to carry during the day and caffeine drinks for the driving ๐Ÿ™‚ ). As I will have a very active next days, I will do all the packing today. I don’t want to stay up late on the days before driving as it adds unnecessary risk to the mix.
