This summer I had the pleasure of going to Switzerland, Italy, France and The Netherlands.
(Cafe in Ventamiglia, Italy)
(Indian food in Lyon, France)
(Carbs, in Switzerland)
(Pasta in Venice, Italy)
Food was just glouriousss! I never questioned what I ate and enjoyed every last bite. There may have been a few instances of pizza and ice cream for breakfast. Butt you only live once.
These bike pathways are beyond amazing! It is definitely an intense ride, with other (faster) bikers passing you by! At first it felt “wrong” to ride on the street along with the cars. But they shared the road really well with the bikes!
In Amsterdam, I was overly ambitious with my bike and I toppled over duffel backpack and all. Thankfully I had fallen off my bike earlier in the summer so I knew I would be just fine. However, my foot was stuck in between the pedals and many of the locals helped me get back on my feet!
Yes, There are TONS of bikes all over Europe and plenty of places to park.
TIP: Pay attention to where you park your bike!! At some point in the dark all bikes look alike!
One night we walked for miles and miles in a circle looking for where we parked our bikes. Thankfully it was a fun adventure, but it could have been much worse!!
I quickly learned after spending 5 hours a day walking that I could not carry more then 3 outfits. I was able to leave the other 20 outfits I brought in the airport locker!
I would have to say the highlight of my trip would have to be the spa that I went to in Switzerland. Fun fact about me, I don’t know how to swim. I suppose it’s a Indian thing, but I am not a water person. So stepping into this pool was a little terrifying. However once I felt the warm thermal bath take over my skin, I never wanted to leave. In fact I stayed in the pool for about 6 hours. I have never been in a thermal bath before, but I must have some warm water ripples in my near future.
To me stress reduction, diet and exercise are key components in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
How do you encompass healthy habits into your vacations?
