Today we have a Juno post! Lately we rarely share a complete post devoted to Juno so it was about time, wasn’t it? Dani joined an 8-hour/4 days intensive course to prepare the theory driving test, so we had lots of only-girlz time during the weekend which, of course, I had to document a little.
I think I have never mentioned anything about driving or cars here on the blog. When you live in a medium-big city like Barcelona, cars feel more like a nuisance for the daily transfers than something to be excited about. I am definitely a big public transport advocate, I think it’s just the best option to have greener & better organized cities. However, when it comes to going out on weekends or road-trips, not being able to rent a car is definitely a big handicap. The same happens when you live in remote places, of course.
We think we are definitely missing out something when travelling by not being able to rent a car ourselves. On the very top of our travel list we have US, just the two of us, on a road-trip. Also I’ve been daydreaming about places like Iceland or Northern Ireland, while we could get there with a group trip it doesn’t fit with our travel pace very well. Do you have experiences to share on any of those destinations? Would love to hear!
The funny thing is that I have a driving license, ha! I’ve had it for more than 10 years now, but I am not able to actually drive because I’ve only done it twice in my life. Dani, on the other side, since has always lived in Barcelona, has never felt the urge to take driving lessons. Never too late?
Dani usually wakes up earlier than me, then Juno seizes that chance to sleep next to me using Dani’s spot. This Sunday I lingered more in bed (which is unusual in me) to play with her and read The Handmaid’s tale. Those who follow us on Instagram may remember I asked for your precious advice to choose a new book, and a couple recommended this dystopian novel with a (distant) echo to 1984. So far I’m loving it although the harsh of its words. I haven’t watched the tv series neither, so I will tackle it as soon as I finish the book too. Have you read or watched? What do you think? Please, no spoilers!
I was very happy to have this quality time with my girl on Sunday, not sure if she would agree taking her facial expression on this last picture as a reference *wink*
How does your weekends look like? Love to hear from you!
