Team / Katiana Torrebella
Great feelings history for me. The time i was going to the first Girls Meet in Zaragoza. I got onboard the boat to cross the mediterranean sea. I arrived to Barcelona and took a bus to Zaragoza. i was in Delicias Station (Zaragoza), asking for information to reach the campsite, too many transfers to cross the city, I remember my friend Ra and I decide to cross the city to his style, APATALONGO! Maybe it was crazy but i was very strong and full of energy, this way I could see the city, free of charge without polluting and training a little.
After 1 hour and a half skating, suitcases in tow and GPS in hand i was getting too tired, 1 hour more and finally i arrived to the camp, a bit late but proud to have achieved. Very great experience, this means that i can get anywhere by my longboard! Even to Montreal ;)
