How I made one of my life’s dreams come true on Fuerteventura.
My sweeties, I still can’t believe how very beautiful this morning a couple of days ago was. I had the chance to fulfill one of my lifelong dreams – to ride a horse at a beach and in the mountains. I’d always wanted to do that.
The freedom that you get to feel while riding through stony, hilly countryside just doesn’t compare with anything in the world. The wind is blowing in your face, the sun is shining warmly you’re riding along small paths, always alternating between up and down, and it’s such a sweet feeling that your horse is taking you safely through this seemingly inhospitable scenery.
Once we had reached the ocean, the wild waves crashed against the shore, the wind was strong and the air tasted of salt. The power of nature was so close and so real here, I could never have imagined it like this. It was so much better, so much more beautiful than in my dreams.
A big thanks goes out to Anke and Walter with their lovely riding finca in La Pared and their four horses. I will never forget this day!
