Let's Speak Manu- Las Gabias my home town

I live in Spain, in a city near Granada, Gabia. I can do snowboarding in Sierra Nevada. It`s one hour away from Granada, but I prefer to swim in the beach in summer. It's about 1 hour away from my house. The beach is more fun with friends and parties. In summer the beach is crowded and at night when the sun disappear it is beautiful. Granada has good weather, ten months of sun and smile. I hate winter because I have to wear a lot of clothes.

*Manu*


Last summer, I visited the Veleta in Sierra Nevada. It is the highest pick in the peninsula. It is half the size of the Hinmalaya, there it is the hightest pick in the world (se the photo at the right of the page).
It was a special and difficult experience. I went with my uncle and my cousin and we made a bet on who would be the first.Before clumbing the montain we saw a taurus on the road of pradollano. At the beginning, my cousin ran, but 2 kilometers later he stopped because it was difficult for him to breath.We were walking X 4 hours to the pick with 3 camelbag of 2 litres of water, and I said we could eat the sandwich on the veleta. I arrived and we were on the brink of disaster of the veleta and I could touch the clouds.The weather was good but when the sun disappeared under the clouds I was cold.15 minutes later we went down running and in 40 minutes we reached the car.

In summer you can go with your bike if you have good legs and you have trained a lot, also you can do hiking.himalaya.jpg
In winter you can do ski, snowboard, ... you can hire the equipment there or here, in Granada.
in my opinio, it was a good experience, and you can do the same, you can surpass your physical limits, and you can get better if you are sick.
