The nature of Bilbao

The nature of Bilbao
On a trip as improvised as ours we couldn’t forget a bit of nature. Truth be told, coming from Valencia we find breathtakingly beautiful those towering mountains and deep forests from the north of Spain.   One morning we visited “La Arboleda” of Bilbao and its many lakes.

The organ sounded
The heavy rain fell again and, on that occasion, it seemed to have no intention of stopping, for it had brought along a bloody storm that managed to shake even the bravest of hearts. The drops of water crashed without rest against the glass of the large windows producing their characteristic sound. But that sweet ...

My holiday week was intense and, among many other things, I took the opportunity to drag Jon to one museum after another, to be more accurate three museums in nine days. The Prado Museum was the first one. I have family in Madrid and still I’d never visited the museum. We were spending the weekend in ...

And life keeps changing

I don’t know what to do with my book now
You’re going to laugh, but I’ve finally finished my book. It is already, written, corrected and revised 100%. And yes, I am aware that it has taken me more time to correct it than to actually write it, but that was something that didn’t depend solely on me. I must admit that I may have ...

Practical guide to survive in summer
July has arrived and, as if by magic, that cool breeze that made the insufferable hours of sun more bearable has turned into a hot and sticky wind that seems to come straight out of hell. Summer has arrived in all its splendour and with it begins the torture for all those who don’t like ...
