After one week of intense mountain bike riding in South Africa, our group of nine took a well-deserved break from the bikes and spent the entire day resting and relaxing at the Rooiberg Lodge in a remote section of the country.
Harry and Kirsten didn’t want a rest though… and so they decided to go on a long bike ride on the roads surrounding the lodge. The rest of us, however, spent our day relaxing by the pool, reading a book, taking photos of the numerous tortoises that we found strolling around the property and/or went hiking in the hills nearby.
I spent the morning working on my computer in the main lodge.
In the afternoon I went on a hike with Julia (and Michi) and did some strolling around on the property by myself.
In the evening, we all gathered together once again for a three-course meal in the lodge and prepared for another day back on the bikes.
