Peeling in the shower

I am SO attractive!
I literally don't understand why anyone wouldn't want me!

For Ben - (the only american in my potential audience) I am being sarcastic.

I just got back from a 4 day trip to Spain the other night, and needless to say I conformed to the British stereotype on the first day by getting horribly burnt and then hiding inside and emerging only at night for the remainder of the trip.

It seems my moisturising efforts were in vain though, and the inevitable has started to happen, lets just hope that my landlord wont fine me for leaving juicy skin flakes around the house when I leave...

Now that I have finished doing my best to make people feel ill, I proudly present a few photographs from Spain.


I arrived at Valencia Airport with Nat early on the 19th and took a walk around Valencia during the morning and early afternoon. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of people, of all ages, who were out exercising in the parks while we were there.

I also sampled my first 'Spanish' drink - Horchata
It tasted like nothing I have ever tried before, and I cant say whether I liked it or not. What I do know is that combining Horchata with coffee shots creates the most delicious drink known to mankind!


When we got to the house in Castillon we made a move to the stunning beach on the shore of the Mediterranean, where I took the opportunity to initially get very burnt - and then on repeat trips - take some pictures.


Unfortunately, my A3 tweak hasnt improved and as such I have still not been doing any climbing - this brings the time since I climbed meaningfully to about 2 months.


Since it has been so long - and I havent really been doing any rehab on it (pretty poor show I know) I think some scar tissue may have formed, leading to a feeling of pain when climbing... I have thus been doing some massage on it, and using a squeezy egg which did a fantastic job of healing my flexor tendon injury from earlier in the year.


I am now engaging in more icing of my hand, and I can sort of feel it having an effect. If you would like to see more of my pictures then please follow this link prepare for plenty of B&W.

There are about 3 weeks before I am hoping to go back to europe and climb again, so I hope I can get my finger in a fit state for climbing. I am also incredibly psyched to start learning a little more Spanish so I am not completely at a loss in the country :-D
