NEWS FLASH I cycled without music on for once. Wow.
Okay so I went back home from this party the other day, but cycled back all the way by myself. I had counted on my best buddy ol’ pal to head back with me, but he wanted to stay a bit longer so who am I to stop him.
I usually take my earbuds and iPod all over everywhere, but didn’t bring them that day knowing I’d have company all the time. But then I suddenly didn’t so dang, had to cycle back without music. ~40 minutes cycle on an average speed.
There were relatively little cars driving by, and the sun was going down, and all in all it was a beautiful trip. Water on one side, beautiful plains on the other. Birds tweeting, ducks quacking, hawk flying by high.
It was amazing. I hadn’t cycled like that in ages. I may not have set a record time, or gotten anywhere fast for that matter, but I enjoyed it, Normally I really enjoy the music and me have a way higher-than-average speed, but this time I enjoyed the calmness, the way the sun going down lighted up the landscape, everything.
Nature is beautiful, and I really want to travel so I can see things other than the boring flat lands that are the Netherlands. I really have to do that, ’cause every time I see a picture of a hill online I’m like “wow holy shit that’s amazing”.
Cherish nature, keep it safe!
