Hiking in Peñas de Aya
Today I want to tell you about my first escape into the nature after testing negative upon arriving to Spain.

This weekend I had the perfect opportunity to catch up with them all in the biggest mountain close to home: Peñas de Aya. Stay tuned if you want to learn all you can do here!
