Promoting walking in Ibiza and loving birthday celebrations, there was only one way that my birthday this year would be celebrated: with a walk. Playing with several thoughts on how and where to go for a birthday walk since I have many favorites like Punta Galera, Cap des Falco and the whole Salines area. A nice, flat Salines walk was chosen to make it easy enough and to have a nice place for picnic.
Picnic at Torre de Ses Portes
Have you ever had a picnic in Ibiza? You could have it almost anywhere (but no grilling and open fire in most places!!!) and enjoy it. I wanted to find a place that could offer a nice easy walk, would be easily accessible and would have a picnic place with a view. And a place that is close to my heart since it is important to have a meaning on your birthday. Though Cap des Falco is my ultimate favorite, it is far too difficult (70% of somebody slipping and falling on loose stones downhill) to risk walking it with a larger group and especially on a day when you want to just take it slow and relax. Punta Galera is beautiful, but I was going to San An later that day. So Salines was only, and the best choice with ca 5 km in length, flat ground mostly and a magnificent place to have a picnic, relax and enjoy the company of friends.
The walk back on the Salines coast has some climbs, some art and some beaches. Thanks, Yo for Yoga moves and Claire for the lovely rose-shaped seashell.
Last year I started my Ibiza-story because of Café del Mar. It was only fair that the day would end there. And we were lucky – this year we got an amazing sky, not pouring rain :).
Thank you all who wished me happy birthday, who came with me on a walk and who have been by my side wherever and whenever through my 31 years. I have had a lot of luck and lot of support. You have got to live your life your way. And that can be tough. That is also why I invite all of you to join the #challenge100km – to have the constant strength to live your way and to find out what that way is.
Walking lifestyle – keeping you fit, mentally and physically
Don’t forget we all need time-off from our daily lives. Walking is the easiest and accessible thing to do that. Go out for a walk, share your thoughts and inspirations with me via e-mail. My aim is to show how easy it is to find little walks, little time-off-chunks in life to keep you mentally and physically fit. Wherever you are.
