Moodboard: Edinburgh

2 Sep

Moodboard_Edunburgh_2If you follow us on Instagram or Twitter (@theslowpace) you know that we spent the weekend in Amsterdam. We’ve had a great time and we absolutely need to come back to get to know the city a little bit better. A weekend was obviously not enough! And that made us think about other places that we need to revisit. The first one that came into our minds was Edinburgh! Besides, with Autumn just around the corner we know that tartan is making its comeback… so thinking about Edinburgh is inevitable! (Well, the Scottish independence referendum this month is another reason to think about Scotland too… but let’s not get into politics and stick to tartan and shortbread).
Moodboard_Edunburgh_1Edinburgh is a city that is really close to my heart. Lots (I mean: lots!) of years ago I spent a wonderful and terribly fun Summer studying there. I remember the melancholic weather, the grey sky and the beautiful trees that showed the first signs of Autumn. But I also remember the crazy shopping in Princess Street, the fun nights out dancing to traditional Scot music in a huge barn, the Military tattoo, the Edinburgh International Festival… I believe that Edinburgh is a city of contrasts: that sad sky and gloomy weather against the lust for life of a vibrant city. Oh, I really want to come back!

Moodboard Amsterdam

19 Aug

Amsterdam_moodboard_2
Last week we almost booked a trip to Amsterdam. We wanted to do something spontaneous, so we decided we would book a hotel for the weekend, jump on a train and enjoy the city! Of course that didn’t happen. I just can’t be spontaneous. No hotels available, problems with the trains… I hate being spontaneous but when I try the universe stops me!  Anyway! Amsterdam is one of those cities that we want to visit but apparently we can’t, like Stockholm or New York. Oh well… we’ll just keep trying! Maybe next Spring? I can totally picture us on our super cool bikes, smelling the tulips, wandering through the Canals, eating Gouda… sigh! ;)

What about you? Are you spontaneous when booking your trips and holidays? Or are you a control freak like me?

Cádiz reflections

19 Aug

Cadiz_Photo_Diary_2014_2

Boys playing football on Santa María del Mar beach.

Cádiz is a city that wakes up and heads to the beach. There, she spents the whole day, playing on the sand, watching families gather around sandwiches and chips. Loud and sweaty. But as the sun goes down, the city takes a shower and turns silver. Sunsets with pink accents, quiet dark corners and sweet flavours. Every Summer, the same routines.

Madrid revisited

14 Aug

Madrid_Photo_Diary_2014_16
Time flies. It’s been almost a month since we visited Madrid! Sometimes we miss this city terribly, that’s why when we come back we never know wether to visit new shops, restaurants, etc, or come back to our usual favourites. Well, this time we stopped for a coffee in our favourite café, we had lunch in our favourite market and stayed in a new hotel that we wanted to check for a long time. Here you have some tips and pictures, if you’d like to see…

One-piece swimsuit, bikini… or nothing at all?

13 Aug

beach2

Have you ever been to Formentera? We spent a couple of beautiful days in this peaceful and extremely gorgeous island three months ago. During our stay we discovered the most amazing beach, which became immediately our favourite beach in the world. It was not a hidden cove, actually it was very close to Ses Illetes, the most visited and photographed beach in Formentera, but it was almost empty, I would even say it was lonely. Just a few couples, a family over there… but it was so quiet and peaceful… and then we realized no one was wearing swimsuits. Yep. Nudist territory. Oh well, we laid out our towels to enjoy the most glorious day under the sun. But after a while I took off my swimsuit. Say what?

Moodboard: Stockholm

12 Aug

stokholm_moodboard_1
Every Winter we decide that we have to visit Stockholm the next Summer. Then Summer arrives and we just don’t book the trip. I don’t know why… it seems like we can’t find the time to visit Stockholm in Summer due to our yearly travels to Spain. But don’t you think this is a city you have to visit in Summer?
stokholm_moodboard_2
Anyway, the main reason why I want to visit Stockholm is not its architecture, royal palaces, charming colourful streets or state of the art cuisine and design. Not even the ABBA Museum! The truth is that I want to visit Stockholm because I want to try the real Cinnamon Buns! #foodie, I know.
