We are officially starting the year today with a brand new photoshoot at one of our fav locations in Barcelona, tuut! According to our book there’s nothing better than to wish you new adventures and travels, and the train definitely conveys all of that, right?
Our New Year’s eve is always very (VERY) low key, not fancy parties until late at night for us, we spend it with my mom at home. She likes to cook that night and thus I am happy gal, ha! In Spain the tradition is to eat 12 grapes at the 12 last clock strokes of the year. At 23:30 we start to peel our 12 grapes (both skin and seeds). If you don’t eat all of them before the year starts it means bad luck, so not a chance we will let the seeds interfere with it *wink* There are also lots of other superstitions, like you must put the right foot before you while eating them or that you should wear your underwear in red color. Does it sound too crazy? We only believe in the power of the 12 grapes though.
How did your New Year’s eve look like? Is the tradition also so superstitious like here?
I always find this precise moment of the year to be challenging, my head tells me I should start making plans (the famous resolutions) for all the months ahead, the hard thing is that I have like a need of being precise about what I will exactly do, create or explore. This is transformed in a lot of pressure, and then I hide away of it as an automatic response.
I used to be a freaking planner and I’ve realized that lately I’m leaving things more to last-minute, but it’s not something I enjoy really. I like having a travel to organize, something that will give me a boost of energy for the not-that-entretaining things in daily endeavours.
Hence, conclusion, I should give up procrastinating and start thinking about what would be cool to do with this 2018. What’s more crazy is that we previously had plans for 2018 that have finally been postponed (reality check) to 2019, so we do have plans for Spring 2019 but nothing in the horizon until then. Suggestions very much welcomed!
Let’s do this 2018, you guys! With your loved ones, health (I sound as an old lady, but it’s so so important) and a little bit of magic.
