Sightseeing in La Alberca


On Wednesday the people of the school where I’m currently doing my internship organised an excursion to a typical Spanish town, named La Alberca. They allowed to go, even though I was supposed to work that day, so I was so happy!

The town is really small but it’s the kind of town you imagine when you think about the old Spanish movies. At least I got that impression! It’s really beautiful to walk around and it was a great spot for taking pictures of the details of the place. I wouldn’t like to live there though because there is really not much to do. It’s so little that there is not even a supermarket!

We found ourselves talking to an American lady over there, who was geocaching. This is some kind of sport that is played all over the world. There are hidden more than a million things in the world and the coordinates of those things are listed on the website. It is a more adventurous way of traveling, so we really liked to help that lady to find what she was looking for, but in the end we didn’t find anything. I think someone accidently took it away and didn’t replace it.

I did love going there and that’s why I want to share some pictures of that day with you guys. 😉

First BBQ of the year


This weekend I had my first BBQ this year and it was really good! The sun was shining, the people were smiling, the BBQ was smelling great and we were at the summerhouse of a friend which was the perfect location to do this barbecue!

I took some pictures! They are not my best shots ever, but I wanted to share them with you anyway!

Hi guys!

#OOTD: Summer outfit in Parque Jesuitas


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!

Horseback riding shooting


Yesterday I went to a town near Salamanca to take pictures of my friend Katy while she was horseback riding! It was a really sunny day and I actually really enjoyed being outside for the morning while listening to the sound of the birds and the horses!

I took about 200 pictures but this is my top 10! My favourite one is the fifth one, because you really see Katy and her horse in action! What’s your favourite one? 😉

Craig’s performance in El Corrillo


On Wednessday night I went with some of my colleagues to the concert of another colleague of us in El Corrillo in Salamanca!

Craig sang some really famous covers which is supernice, because like that I could sing in my head too 😉

Check out his reverbnation-profile here and let him know what you think about his songs!

I really like to go to this kind of concerts. The entrance is cheap and you get to enjoy the passion that someone has for music. I don’t say that I don’t enjoy going to concerts of worldfamous stars, but this is more intimate and it’s nice to get to know the talent of someone you work with!

Creepy old house


Good afternoon ladies and gentleman,

Today’s post is about something strange and creepy…

Since I’ve been living in Salamanca I haven’t seen any unattached house, except for one. And you guess right, it’s the one on the picture. It’s located close to where I’m living and it creeps me out. I’ve always known that there was something about that house that wasn’t right, but I still haven’t figured out what it is.

Since the moment I arrived 2 months ago, until last week, the house was just abandoned but I couldn’t see much of it, because there were lots of trees and weeds in front of it which covered the view of the house. Last week something happened… They started pulling out all the trees, they cleaned the trash and they made the house visible again. There were lots of policeman which made it seem mysterious to me…

As I said already, I have no clue what happened to this house or to the people who used to live in it, but it just seems like they suddenly left the house and left everything else behind. In a thriller there would definitely be sitting a ghost on the unstable chair that you can see on the balcony.

It surprises me that I couldn’t find one of those creepy dolls around the house. The kind of dolls with glass eyes that are always used in the best thrillers. Every time I’m watching a thriller and that kind of dolls appear I’m saying to myself: “Oh Gosh, those dolls are there again”, and in the next scene I just know there will be a flashback of a kid who’s dying…

I’m wondering what story is behind that house in Paseo de la Estación in Salamanca…

If anyone knows more, please tell me!

Trip to Béjar

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! 😉

Sightseeing in Salamanca


1.Salamanca 041

Hello everyone!

I had a lovely day today! I woke up early and I went to the gym for a run. I ran 6,5 km in 40 minutes + burned 500 Kcal. I’m so proud of myself! 😉

After that, I cooked together with my roommates (‘compañeros de piso’) because one of them left today, and we wanted her to have an amazing last day with us. We made pasta with pesto, and also some toasts with ‘jamon y queso’ (=ham and cheese)

2. Salamanca 010 3. Salamanca 092

After she left I went sightseeing in Salamanca. I just took my camera and left to get to know some new places.

Salamanca is really amazing. The people live more on the street than in Belgium (which I really like!), they enjoy their afternoons with a nice glass of sangria at Plaza Mayor and they are really social. I also love the fact that the sky is always blue! It really makes me happy ;-).

I’ll attach some pictures I took today, so you can get to know Salamanca from my point of view. Enjoy 😉

4. Salamanca 029 5. Salamanca 023.

1. I love the little spots where people sell handmade stuff on the street! I bought a nice bracelet overthere!

2. “La Policia”:  it seemed like those 2 guys were really good friends. They were talking and talking… It’s such a nice feeling when your collegues are also your friends!

3. I was walking through the little streets without having a destination, and I loved the view I got from this point!

4.+ 5. I like the fact that a lot of people go to Plaza Mayor to chill out, read a book, or watch the other people. It really has a nice atmosphere.

6. “The world is breaking down & we fell in love”: I thought it was a really cute quote… And there I was wondering again what would be the story of the people who wrote it! I can’t help being so curious about things like that.
