Dear David and Irina,
I do not know how to thank you enough!
I arrived in St Pete Florida to find a warm reception in a fancy business hotel.
The atmosphere here is not less than of a family hotel- despite 76 rooms, warm and very professional.
All the staff is amazing, the manager Nancy and her assistance. Linda is really special persons.
I cannot wait giving them a motivational lecture, it will be fun.
I feel at home, plus everything is wheelchair friendly and my room is a comfortable suite!
Linda found for me a complementary fitness place to train in. I am all set.
St Pete is also a small paradise, sea shore, white sand, green everywhere, squirrels in the trees and dolphins in the port…
I already found perfect biking areas and began to train indeed.
At the TopEnd Cie, we began yesterday the building of my new bike and I am waiting to make now my first tries.
It is very moving.
Thanks for all!!
I will keep and update J
Have a nice WE, hot tea and warm blanket,
Very warm regards from Flo.
