THE DOGS ON A BIKE TRAVELLERS

PREVIOUS / NEXT

LIFESTYLE by KRISS on 16 may 2016

Spare any change pal ? This was more or less how David called out to us yesterday, sitting with his bike and his dogs in Calle Carrabeo in Nerja.
He and his friend Christian have been travelling throughout Spain for 6 months on their bikes with little carts for their dogs.

You would think they are bums and they come across as such.
But in fact they are just individuals who once had enough of their lives.
David used to own a restaurant in France.
He lost a michelin star and got divorced.
He put on 120 lbs and wanted to end it.
His friend Christian came along and offered him to take a year off.
He seized the opportunity, paid his mortgage for a whole year and jumped on a bike with his dogs.
He’s lost 60 lbs in 6 months, feels a lot better and knows what he’s going to do at the end of this year : sell everything and move out of France, out of his misery.

It wasn’t the first time I bumped into these guys in Nerja, a dog in a cart behind a bike is rather unusual.
They have been blocked in Nerja for a few weeks because they had puppies which they are placing before moving on.
We spend a little half hour with the men and the dogs, which resulted in Rose asking for a puppy for the next couple hours… Ahhh kids !
