168 - san millán de la cogolla.

Last week was complete disaster and I didn't have a single moment to upload more pictures. I took these ones in San Millán de la Cogolla and they are my favorites. The morning light makes them look so good. 

More to come tomorrow : )

167 - laguarida, álava.

Hey there!

On Saturday, I visited a little village in Álava, called Laguarida. The place lies over a hill and it is surrounded by a huge stone wall. It was a beautiful place.

Pictures aren't too good though, I didn't spend much time with the camera to be honest. I still wanted to share them here.

The weather in Spain is being incredibly good (taking into account we are in mid November). We spent a sunny, warm afternoon in Laguarida and then we set off to visit more little villages.

166 - wine experience in la rioja.

One of the best things about La Rioja is of course, wine. Even if you are not a wine lover (not my case, lol), you have to visit some wine cellars and of course try different varieties. 

To be honest, the experience was pretty snobby, but I have improved my wine knowledge quite a lot. 

If you don't like alcohol, visiting the vineyards in autumn time is always a good option. You cannot miss the endless red, brown and orange fields.

I ended up being a little wasted, but it was fun-fun-fun!

165 - la rioja.

Hi there!

It's Monday again and I wanted to make a super quick update to show you three pictures from this past weekend (more to come soon).

I went up north Spain for two days and discovered La Rioja for the first time. It was surprisingly beautiful. Such a good autumn trip, I would recommend it to everyone.

It felt so nice to escape from Madrid and forget about everything. 

I will upload more pictures in the next entries. Stay tunned and see-u later!

164 - same old, same old.

Have such a good weekend full of petit committee celebrations. Dinner with the girls, little trip to Toledo, drinks with the gang and tea party with the family. Perfect amount of presents and lots of sweet bday wishes and kind gestures.  

Therefore, to everyone that has crossed my path and has contributed to make my life better in any kind of possible way, be sure to meet me again during the next 25 years.

163 - 25 and fabulous!

Hey! Now you are speaking with a 25 years old girl. Feeling exactly the same way indeed. And sure I have a couple of plans for the big day, but I will tell you more about that later (there is always a little room for improvisation).

Not feeling like big celebrations or meaningless bday wishes from people I don't even care about, though. But of course friends and family will be there for and that's always helpful : )

Maybe I will share some thoughts and snapshots soon, and I will tell you about my next weekend trip in the following entry.

See you later alligators!

162 - autumn fun.

I'm working on having a really good social life lately. Saying yes to every plan and not worrying much about anything. Here you have some pictures about last weekend in my village and some other random snapshots from my phone. I took the big camera with me, but didn't take any picture at all. I guess I was too busy drinking wine and playing board games. Have I said that I actually luuuuv autumn yet? C-ya soon!

161 - live a little.

hey there! 

It's been a while since I updated the blog for the last time. Not much to say to be honest. I've been working too hard but that's not new. Halloween is coming and I've been making sure that my first 31st of October at school is as good as possible (and at the same time I have to keep up with the contents of the curriculum). 

Anyhow, this weekend I'm running away from the city, coming back to Salamanca for a few days. I will take some more pictures and I'll have fun. Need to relax and forget about work issues.

On the other hand, my bday is coming. My bday day is turning into something scary and annoying. Not so funny anymore. 

See you soon with some pictures I hope!
