Free Weekend

We have a free weekend! Actually three days, thanks to May Day, which is also a holiday here. And last night we bought a car – tonight it’s still working… – so we’re going to go off and explore our new territory.

Maybe rivers as well as beaches…

…and certainly some towns and villages as well. Still not too many tourists about, so we’ll take our chance on finding some accommodation.

We haven’t done anything like this for absolute ages – back in TN there has always been loads to do – coaching, training, shows… but here, until the resorts actually open for business, we are strictly on 5 days a week. It’ll all go to shifts shared around with our colleagues eventually, of course, but our contracts guarantee us a good number of free days per month. So – southern Portugal, here we come!

Just for once we leave the gym behind and won’t be training for three days. For full-time professionals (acrobats), that would be disastrous – but we’re only occasional performers at the moment, so  – what the heck!

So – probably no posts for a couple of days…so here is another instalment of fitness inspiration to keep you on your toes while we take time out!

Looks like the weekend here will be partly sunny, dry, but a little cooler than usual. By Wednesday we’ll be up to 30C (86F) – more like Tennessee, and wall to wall sunshine but without the humidity. Magic!

Last word… do try the books. Hit these links…

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
