I arrived in Innsbruck, on the 22nd of October and really did not expect to really be skiing until December. With most resorts still not open I have somehow managed to have my best October/November of skiing ever!
We mountain biked, road biked, wake boarded, paddle boarded, sailed the English Channel, sailed in dinghies, managed a forrest, camped, partied, swam in the sea, BBQ'ed on beaches, mad and had a really, REALLY good time.
Innsbruck, Austria is truly a tremendous place! For 3 Months from the end of January I skied and filmed there. I got some great skiing, discovered epic resorts and bc terrain, had some excellent filming opportunities, learnt some Deutsch and made really really good friends
After biking 1273.8km over 26 days and climbing to over 2000m we have finished! This was the hardest week but also the most rewarding. We rode from Batticaloa at sea level to Nuwara Eliya at over 2000m and descended back to Negombo at sea level.
After a 113 km day fighting into the wind we made it to the Karaveddy Preschool! It was an interesting week of biking with muscle cramps, a tooth infection, a gigantic thunderstorm, a mixed religion festival, wild elephants and many interesting places and people.
We have begun our journey around Sri Lanka, 291.3 km biked! It is far to hot, just carrying enough water is hard, even the sea is warm. But the food is epic and cheap and almost every single person smiles and waves - lovely people!
