Second day in Spain

Ruben standing on a distant piece of rock in Siurana

Now we’re in Spain climbing on the rocks. It’s pretty nice weather (sunny, some clouds and almost perfect conditions for climbing, maybe sometimes a bit too hot). We’re sleeping a lot, eating well and having fun with friends playing games in the evening after dinner. We’re also enjoying the nature in the region of “El Priorat” which is famous for its oil and wine, especially from Siurana.
Currently we’re staying in Cornudella de Montsant in a comfortable apartment called “La Vileta” with really friendly owners which is just 10 minutes away by car from Siurana. Weiterlesen

Climbing against Cancer (CAC)

For Ruben it was impressive to see him handling his disease so well! Weiterlesen
