Citytrip to Granada


In November I visited my sister Céline in Granada, where she was staying for her Erasmus program. I went there with a Honduran friend, named Mario.

We took a flight to Barcelona, and then we had a connection to Granada, but between the two flights we had to wait like 10 hours at the airport which was the worst experience ever! Because we arrived late, all the shops were closed and we just couldn’t do anything. In the end Mario bought us a bottle of wine, and after talking a while, we tried to get some sleep.

After we arrived in Granada, we visited an arena, but there were no bull fights at the time so we just went in for looking around. We also went visiting the famous Alhambra, which is some kind of famous palace with an amazing view of the city. We stayed there all day and even though you need to be in good shape to walk all the way up to the palace, we did it! (My sister and me were so happy that we didn’t wear high heels that day because it would have ruined everything!). We really enjoyed the amazing view and the sun shining ‘bright like a diamond’. After that visit we just wandered around in the city for taking random pictures.

Next to the touristic visits, we also tasted of the Spanish life at a house party of some friends of my sister. Everyone made a typical dish of his own country to take to the party. We made some kind of easy vanilla pudding with speculoos (those are my favorite Belgian cookies!). It was delicious and we were clearly not the only ones who thought so, cause we were almost immediately out of pudding! The thing I loved the most at that party was the fact that some Spanish guys were playing the guitar while singing Spanish songs. It was an amazing experience!

It was a really cool, but short trip!

Hello Salamanca


Hi guys!

So if you have been following my blog lately, you probably know that I arrived in Salamanca allready where I will be doing my internship at Tia Tula. On Friday I took a flight to Madrid, and after that i took the train to Salamanca! The apartment where I’m staying is in the same street as the train station, so I didn’t have to walk that far when I arrived. I’m living together with a Japanese and a Dutch girl and they are really friendly.

On Saturday I went looking for the place where I’m going to work during the next 4 months. It was not that difficult to find, so I’m glad for that. It was a really sunny day, so it was really nice to explore the city. The streets are really typical spanish, just like I imagined it. They have those old nice buildings in the city where the spanish people are standing at the window, while talking to the people who live in the building in front of them. I first didn’t realize where all those voices came from, but you see, the Spanish people don’t need to come out of there houses to have a face to face conversation!

I didn’t take that many pictures, because I didn’t take my camera during my walk. But I still was able to take a couple of pictures with my iPad.

When I discovered some new places, or I have new stories of my spanish life, I’ll keep you posted.
