Åsa and Maja on tour vol. 2 -Down Under!!!

It has been a big dream of mine to go to Australia for many years. Having the chance to go with one of my very best friends and even race at the same time was too good an opportunity to say no: Two girls on a mission, IM 70.3 Cairns and IM Cairns + discover Northern Queensland Australia!

We arrived about one week prior to the race. – Two races, one location, and 3100 participants, COOL! – And have been lucky enough to have a Homestay for the full 3weeks. The Sager Family did not only let us in there house, they have taken us to what ever we needed to do, cooked dinner, shown us the area and in general just been absolutely amazing.

The only thing we could have wished for would have been a bit more sunshine – but hey that just means we have to go back one day!

I’ll like to thank Baden, Whitney, Bob, and Julie Sager, one fantastic family, for being our hosts and taking care of us, we have had a great time! Also thanks to Åsa and Mari for great company. I think it is safe to say that Åsa and Maja on tour vol 3 already is in process.
