Follow your heart
Listening to your intuition is the main key to guiding you along your heart route. Last summer after a breakup I decided to cycle my heart out somewhere I've always longed to visit, and embrace change.
Cycle your heart out and embrace change!
Formentera, a Spanish island next to Ibiza in Spain
I took a ferry with Baleria from Barcelona to Ibiza, at one point 2 dolphins even danced alongside me. To get to Formentera I took a peaceful boat ride from Es Canar in Ibiza.

The Heart Route
After picking up my bike and map I had around 6 hours to make my heart route before my boat left. After studying my map and asking a few friendly locals for the best bike paths, my 11.14km heart route came to life!
I took time along my route to simply live in the moment... noticing the colour of the sky, the sound of the waves, the feeling of the wind on my face. Every time my mind wandered I would bring it back to my breath, and the feeling on my upper lip as I breathed in and out.
After I left Formentera I took a boat to Santa Eulalia in Ibiza and discovered the amazing Passion Cafe. The cafe is full of beautiful quotes and healthy food, it was the perfect way to end my heart route. Back at my campsite I discovered there was also a Yoga festival going on so enjoyed the next few days of my holiday meeting some beautiful souls!

The most important part of your heart route is to remember all the beautiful people who made your route possible.
