We’re Booked: Spain, Morocco, Canary Islands, Madeira – Geek Turned Athlete

We’re Booked: Spain, Morocco, Canary Islands, Madeira

Well, Steve and I are officially booked for a cruise set for the end of November!  We are so excited!  The weather will be especially gloom during that time in Germany, and it will be so nice to get out and enjoy the nice weather around Spain and Africa!  Here is our route: image

and our ship:  image

I’ve never been on a cruise before, and I am so excited!!  Americans won’t be the majority on this cruise either which always makes things more interesting! 

Steve and I are not considering this our honeymoon though.  We plan on going on our honeymoon in the spring which will be a cycling tour through Tuscany when the weather is a little better.  At least that is what we are thinking for now.  I still have to do more travel research!!

By the way, I’m still not sick of pumpkin!!!  I had this today as a snack.DSC03556

I mixed in about 1/2 cup of pumpkin in with my honey Greek yogurt, then topped it with berries and granola.  Just an idea for some of you looking to get your pumpkin and yogurt fix at the same time.  No artificial flavors!  Now open wide: DSC03561 Amazing!

I have also completed my marathon training schedule ending with the Paris Marathon in April.  image It is time to get down to business with the running!!  I’m so excited to run through Paris!  I hope that I will be able to enjoy it!  This will be my first marathon!  Last year for my birthday, I was fortunate enough to run through Prague in a half marathon.  The scenery was unbelievable, and I’m glad that I was calm enough to take it all in. :)DSC01254 DSC01342 (I’m in the blue and white cap!)

I’ve been searching all weekend for triathlons in the spring in Germany with no luck.  I’m really disappointed by this!  They all seem to start in the summer, and I don’t want to commit to something unless I know that I will still be living in Europe.  We still don’t know when we are moving to Spokane, WA.  Sometimes, this military stuff is a pain in the ass!!    I can’t complain too much being that we get to travel so much for relatively cheap because we live here!! I still have to fill in my swim schedule and biking schedule in my planned workouts.  I guess I will just do my own thing until I a) find a new swim workout or b) find a triathlon to compete in before June.

Happy Running!!!

    I’m so jealous that you’re going on a cruise this month!! Have fun and can’t wait to see all the pictures. BTW: what cruise line did you book through? Thinking about taking my mom on a cruise when she’s out here next year.
