Being a professional photographer has its perks. Meet interesting subjects, traveling to far out places and it’s always a new adventure.
Last week I found myself in southern Spain at the Strong Like Bull Training Camp, Andalusia, Spain
Since 2006, Strong Like Bull Training Camps (www.stronglikebulltraining.com) has brought together athletes from all over the world to share in the experience of training on challenging mountains while being encouraged by the awesomeness of this place. With a community spirit, a health food chef, pro athletes and other supportive athletes, you have a one-of-a-kind community of people who are mixing getting fit with a grand adventure. Add sunshine and warmth, while most of the Northern Hemisphere is frozen and cold, and you have the best trip with a bike you can find.
Andalusia, Spain is steeped in myth and magic. 5000-year-old Iberian temples, 1200-year-old Roman arches, the 600-year-old Moorish Alhambra Palace, 300-year-old Catholic cathedrals; Spain’s rich history and culture make pushing pedals here part-training and part-ride through living history. Equal to all of that is the natural wonder and breathtaking landscape of the area, from dramatic mountains to endless green fields. This is one of the most sublime places on earth.
