2 weeks ago I went taking some pictures of the beautiful lights that you see when you walk around Salamanca by night. I wanted to share a few of my shots with you!
Enjoy the lights!
I’ve found a photobuddy in Salamanca! I’m teaching her how to take nice pictures with my camera and until now she likes my classes! 😉
On Sunday we went taking some pictures in a park in Salamanca, named Parque Jesuitas! It was so hot so it was really crowded! Parents were rollerskating with their kids, the youngster were playing basketball, girls were sunbating, young families were picknicking, some other guys were making a music video… Everyone had something to do there!
My friend and I became models for the afternoon, so it was really fun!
Short: Abercrombie & Fitch
Bag: Yves Renard
Have a nice Monday!

I decided that it was time for another outfit post!
While visiting Madrid I was looking for nice spots to take some fashion pictures with my friend. The gardens of the Royal Palace were the perfect spot for these pictures I wanted to take. The light was nice and the palace in the background made the pictures even more special!
Have you seen my camera necklace by the way? I love it! It’s so me 😉
Bag: I am
Necklace: Bizoe Bizoe
As I announced a couple of days ago, I’m on my way to Madrid! During this 3-day trip ill try to update my blog with my impressions of the city!
This is what I’ve been doing in the bus:
(I have Wi-Fi on the bus btw, which is great!)
Keep on following and reading! I’ll update my blog today for sure 😉
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!

In this post I’ll write another review about a city in Spain that I visited. This time I’ll talk about Zamora.
Zamora is a city in the northwest of Spain, near the frontier with Portugal. It is crossed by the Duero river and they actually offer boatrides on the river, but sadly they only start those boat trips at the end of March. But there was of course more than just a river in the city. Zamora counts 24 Romanesque style churches, which makes it the city where you can find most churches of that style of all Europe.
We did a walking tour through the city and I think we passed like 15 of them.
On the Internet I read an article about the Holy Week in Zamora. Everyone in the city is celebrating and there are lots of activities during that week. When I visited the city last week, people of all ages were allready practising some songs that they are going to play during the festivities!
I took pictures of some views I liked. On the first picture, you see like a connection between 2 buildings. I can’t really say why, but I really liked this. It connected two buildings, of which one was completely different of the other one. It made me think about the group I was visiting the city with. We are all completely different persons, of all different countries (Belgium (me!), Korea, Japan, United Kingdom, Czech Republic & United States), but even though there are so many differences between us, we still connect, and we had a great time together!
On the second picture you can see the most original mailbox I’ve seen in my life. If there is living a little boy in that house, he is so lucky to have parents that are that original to put a mailbox like that!
On the next picture, I like the fact that the bridge was reflected in the water. That always makes me think of the pictures of cities in travel brochures, but I hadn’t seen that a lot of times for real until now.
The forth pictures show some kind of tree that I call ‘army-trees’. The have the color of camouflaged soldiers who are hiding in the woods. I put the picture in black and white now, but I’m sure that if you would see a tree like that for real, that you would immediately think on the soldiers too! 😉
On the last two pictures you see 2 images that you can find a lot in Spain. I personally love the typical streets that go up or down a bit. It’s typical for this country I guess. I’m not sure but I think that storks are really common in here. I saw some of them in Béjar allready too! (Check out my post about Béjar to know more about that!)
Anyway, I hope you all liked this post. I all wish you a happy further Sunday!
On Saturday i went to Toro with some friends.
Toro seems to be like a small medieval town in Spain, that comes straight out of an old movie. I was really imagining myself in that movie that I had in my head. The only thing that was missing were the people who were riding on their horses. When I didn’t see them anywhere, I went back to reality ;-).
The city/town is known for its wine and its many churches, so we went sightseeing and after that we enjoyed a glass a red wine.
On Saturday I visited Béjar, a little town/city in Spain. It’s only 1h15 from Salamanca, so it was a great opportunity to visit it on my free day. We were a group of 5 people, all from different countries, which was interesting (Japan, England, Korea, Czech Republic & as you know I’m from Belgium). Which is cool about the place is that it’s not that cold in there, but if you look up you can see mountains full of snow around you and you can actually ski overthere.
There was a place, called Camera Oscura, which I recommend to everyone. It’s some kind of touristic attraction, but in an interesting way. We all had to go in a dark room, and one of the towers of the building had the shape of a lens of a camera. From the inside the guide could turn the lens to zoom or to make the image we got to see sharper. Since I’m really interested in film and photography, I really enjoyed this ‘museum’. I paid only € 1,50 so it was really worth its price!
Something else I liked about this town were the ‘murallas’. These were Moorish walls, built in the 11th century. While walking around those walls, we took some really nice pictures.
In that neighborhood I also saw an old fabric, with broken windows and everything. It really seemed to be one of those creepy places they use in thrillers. It fascinates me to see buildings like that, but since I was on the top of a mountain when I saw it, I couldn’t enter to check it out. It wasn’t the only creepy place in Béjar! There were a lot of old houses, that looked like they came straight out of a horror movie.
Last but not least, I loved the restaurant where we ate, called La Antigua Posada Del Peso. For only € 10,00, they offered us a delicious three course meal. There was a lot of choice on the menu, and I honestly didn’t know what to pick. Because we couldn’t chose, the owner brought us his special rice to help us ‘choosing’. When I finally decided I first ate lasagna, after that I shared calamares and some kind of fried ‘tiger’ mussels. After that the owner of the restaurant offered us, instead of 1 dessert, a whole plate with everything that was on his dessert menu. Everything was homemade and it was the most delicious plate I’ve eaten in my life. He also served us a free dessert drink (Caramel vodka), which didn’t taste that bad either. The food, the hospitality and the jokes of the owner which were included, were worth so much more than only € 10,00. I hope that someday I can go back there! 😉
