It’s all a matter of perspective

It’s all a matter of perspective. That’s what old people say. “You will see, when you are old, you will think differently. It’s all a matter of perspective!” And maybe we needed a trip to Patagonia by bicycle to realize that maybe those old guys aren’t all wrong…

The nice thing about cycling in the rain, is that (most of the time!) in the evening we manage to find a nice little cabaña (cabin) with a wood-lit fire where we can cook some nice meal and dry our wet stuff before we cuddle into the nice and warm bed while listening to the rain outside.

The nice thing about eating dehydrated survival food (rice, pasta, muesli bars) for a few days is that after you really appreciate some nice and fresh food prepared with care. Especially when the place is nice and warm around a fireplace and the bread comes just fresh out of the oven.

The nice thing about not taking a shower for several days (except for the natural ones in the rain) is that when you get the chance to get one, you really appreciate the hot water cleaning your whole body!

The nice thing about cycling uphill for a day, is that you always get some reward by going downhill!

It’s all a matter of perspective! :-)

    @Ivana: Non, mais c’est pas possible de prendre en photo les “free falls”, car il y en a toujours un (une, moi en occurence) qui est occupé a faire le “free fall” et l’autre est en général tres occupe a ne pas rouler sur la main ou une jambe de celui qui a fait le “free fall” (car il ne tenait pas assez de distance…).

    @Florent: Mince! On les a posté trop tot alors! ;-)
