Holidays are over

January 11, 2016

I’m off to Australia today to start the season with Lampre-Merida at the Tour down under. Before we get down to business, here’s some photos from my holiday I had in Italy after the season ended.

After the Vuelta I was already ready to start my offseason but the team needed some riders for the last few Italian races. As these are some of the nicest race I said I would go to them.

I took the Bus from Lucca and met my friend, Stefan, at Florence Airport.
We took the first train straight to rome and stayed for 2 nights. We had an awesome time and even ended up on an organised pub-crawl starting at the Coliseum and showing you Rome at night.
Then we went back to Florence and stayed for 2 nights. Again had an amazing time but the best must have been meeting 5 more South Africans and watching SA vs Wales (RWC). Then it was back to Lucca.

We took the train to Pisa and Cinque Tere just for a day, and just toured Lucca for the rest of the time.

We ate every thing. Pizza, Pasta, Sushi, Indian, Gelato . . .Think I gained 3 KG in the 10 days.
