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?

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?

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.

mmm… Monday! Bar El Tomate, Madrid

11 Aug

restaurante_tomate_1
When we visit Madrid we always meet our friend A. for lunch. She knows the best places to enjoy really (but really) good Spanish food. Last Summer she took us to Mercado de la Reina, which is now one of our favourite spots in Madrid, and this years she introduced us to the wonders of Bar El Tomate. This restaurant is not new, in fact we wanted to try it for a long time. But when we got A’s sign of approval, we knew the lunch was going to be fantastic. Continue reading
