Curious confessions
I can’t ignore the fact that last year I shared much more short tales on the blog than this year, and I am pretty sure that some of you were also aware of it. And with these I prove something I’ve been suspecting for a while; the rain inspires me. It might sound stupid but ...

Last weekend there was a medieval market in the neighbourhood and, being next to my place, there was no way ‘ll miss it. Apparently, the medieval market of Benimaclet is one of the largest in the city of Valencia and also one of the best known. Several of the streets leading to the square are ...

As I said on my previous post, having holidays was something that I wasn’t expecting. With that in mind, Jon and I decided to spend a weekend in Madrid; with the AVE you arrive so fast so it wasn’t a crazy idea. Well, that Friday I left work already carrying all my “gear” and went ...

I thought I wasn’t going to have holidays
I thought that having a new job I couldn’t ask for anything more but still I was lucky enough to be able to enjoy my holidays, which was something I wasn’t expecting. Well, with nine free days before me I didn’t need much time to improvise a way to enjoy those unexpected holidays. On first ...
