Tree trunks into the sky
Emerald green leaves
Golden sunlight slicing through
Kissing the earth
Soothing sounds of a nearby stream
Birds in a peaceful choir
The crunch of winter beneath my wheels
No one to guide me
Just the well trodden path
And the call from within
That whispers welcome home
Follow your heart
After reading 'Light Is The New Black' by Rebecca Campbell, my heart led me to the forest to spend more time listening to the call from within.
Cycle Your Heart Out for... your soul!
Next to the Montseny National Park. Located in the quiet town of Sant Esteve de Palautordera, only a 1 hour train and cycle from Barcelona, so no car necessary! Perfect for me as I still can't drive!
After picking up a map from tourist information, I sat down on the grass and started noticing all the beautiful paths that I'd hiked the previous 2 days. Within minutes my heart route had appeared, a great mix of the town, nature and forest! An easy 4.52km heart, all flat and mostly on bike paths.

Spread the love
I stayed at the peaceful Hotel Somlom ECO & Wellness Lodge next to the Montseny National Park.
On my first night I danced my heart out in their belly dancing class, and they kindly lent me a yoga mat so I could practice in the comfort of my own room. I arrived with no clue of the area so I was really grateful for the kind staff who patiently showed me all the best cycling and hiking paths.
Thank you to Davinia and everyone who worked at Hotel Somlom! I gave the hotel a copy of my book so that anyone who visits can enjoy flicking through the pages while they wait for their yoga class or massage!
