Hello my sweeties! This week almost finishes with a “no-post” from us, which seemed a few minutes ago quite unavoidable, but since the 31st sounds as the best possible date to share a recap of the month, here I am last-minuting a snapshots series post to talk about this summery month. Do you also have this type of no-post uneasiness?
July has been a weird month this year, we managed to squeeze a week off work and travelled to Madrid to be with my family and were even able to add Segovia as a 1-day getaway from there (which of course will properly share soon, yuhu!). And for the rest, well… let’s jump to the pictures to see how the month looked from our phones perspective, shall we? Feelings-wise let’s just say that the top image with Juno hidding in the trolley sums it up pretty well, ha!
The month started with a wedding from our friends Anna and Manel. We were able to see friends from the University whom I haven’t been with for 4 years, quite exciting! You can see here the instax mini pic we took with our wedding guests outfits and the succulent they gave us as a favor.
As we mentioned on the previous post, we took engagement pictures for my cousin and his adorable fiancée. We couldn’t resist taking some silly making-off pictures with our phones, so you can see us in action, ha!
Don’t worry, I survived the one-foot-in-each-rock “dangerous” photo pose and the cute couple wasn’t accidentally caught by the fisherman at their side ;) We took two sessions with them, so this is also a spoiler of where and how the second one looks. Surprise!
Although my family lives in the suburbs in Madrid, we always have to visit at least one day the city center. Aren’t the sunshade thingies in the photo below a clever solution for hot cities like Madrid in their pedestrian streets?
My auntie has a very witty yorkie dog called Lua. Dani who is also a dog-lover always tries to spend more time with her by volunteering to take her on walks whenever we are visiting there.
My nephew is super into soccer lately and bought a new pair of goalkeeper gloves. When I told him I was going to take a picture with the purchase, he told me: “ok, but I’m going to do my best soccer star impersonation” Kids are just too fun!
The most typical food in Madrid is a fried calamari sandwich. It may sound a little too much, but it’s delish! We had one with my mom and auntie at Brillante, one of the most well-known places to eat it.
One day after we were in the amazing Segovia, these pictures definitely don’t make it justice, so we’ll make sure we share it better soon.
When we came back from Madrid the most amazing surprise was waiting, a letter from my penpal miss Cassandre with goodies from her Japan trip. Thanks, I am the most terrible penpal, so million thanks for being so incredibly patient and cute.
Back at Barcelona I had the urge to go to do something different. It does happen to me sometimes, we love our usual spots so much that it’s hard to switch things up. This time it was a little easier because I was eager to visit Mendl’s, a bar that bases its decoration in all of Wes Anderson movies. As the super fans that we are, you could hear me squeek with every name referencing a movie or character in their menu.
The best thing in the menu is their croquettes. And a super cute touch is that the ticket comes in a DVD case.
To celebrate Dani’s mom birthday we had a paella at Sitges (do you remember that is the same town with a film festival that we visit each year? See our last post about it here).
And what you can’t see here is me stuck at home in front of the computer, thus… not that fun to take a pic, ha! What are your plans for August? We want to go more to the movies (Ghostbusters, anyone also watching it no matter the criticism?), a Vivian Meier exhbition that I’m dying to visit and ice-cream, lot of ice-cream!
