A dream of mine is to travel the world and experience many cultures, places and people so that I can create many memories for the future. With the help of Dynamic Adventures CIC, my abroad travels have began, starting with Spain! We flew into Alicante airport with many hopes for the week to come! Our aim was to go sport climbing in Costa Blanca, in areas such as Echo Valley, Guadalest, Marin and Sierra de Toix and we successfully climbed in all of the above areas.
Sport climbing is where there are bolts already in the rock face, so all you have to do is place quick draws into these, and not place your own gear. The week was amazing and the climbing, views and experience was extraordinary!! There was one particularly hard climb (6a+ lead,) in Guadalest which I’m proud to say that I achieved after much perseverance. I felt that I continued to improve my climbing technique daily, but by the end of the trip, my arms could barely lift a drinks bottle aha!
In the middle of the week, at the end of a hard days climbing, we also got to go down to Benidorm and play football on the beach and splash around in the sea. The temperature was perfect and I wasn’t expecting to be wearing shorts and T shirt in November that’s for sure! All of the team had an amazing time and we are all buzzing for our next Adventure to Poland!
