Gabe liked the Eiffel Tower. “How could they build something so incredible more than 100 years ago? The view is fantastic; you can see the mountains and the coastal plains.”. Cruz liked the aspect of finding and trying new things. For example, he says, “I tried fencing and calligraphy and a lot of goat cheese. I like it now on bread.”. There were a few least favorite things such as the tight schedule and the fact they didn’t spend enough time in the country. Gabe and his roommate were unhappy with their hotel room in Nice because it took the lights a long time to come on and his roommate got locked in the bathroom.

I had to laugh at the part of the book that says, “The extent of my training was Florida, Mississippi and Alabama.” Really?. I was a weekend cyclist working nonstop for two years, and I was massively out of shape. I started in Florida because I thought it would be flatter. It was really flat until the Texas Hill Country. I brought an iPod along and I rarely listened to it because most of the time I found the solitude to be a form of meditation. There were days when I’d ride for three or four hours before I realized I was lost in thought. In daily life, with families, friends and jobs, you don’t really have the luxury of quiet times to think.

avian affairs: If birds are more your thing, the park district is offering several upcoming bird-watching outings. Set your alarm and prepare for coffee, though — some of the best avian observations are just after dawn. A nice afternoon outing is scheduled at Big Break Regional Shoreline on Sunday.

Topics include: frantic feathers, big beaks, tough talons, whistling wings and exotic eggs. Meet at 2 p.m. at the Big Break Visitor Center, 69 Big Break Road, Oakley.
