Paris, je t’aime

paris je taime

Can I tell you a secret? I have never been to Paris Paris, the city of love, the stuff of dreams. The place where so many great heart-warming (some, heart-melting) movies take place. Movies like Amélie, Paris Je T’aime, The Beat that my heart skipped, Before Sunset, Moulin Rouge (I was 16 and hormonal. BIG IMPACT)… but also some tough films like La Haine. So many stories about Paris, and here I was, still a Paris Virgin! That’s right, I had never been in…

My fully-packed weekend in London!

London

I spent the weekend in London with my friend Silvia, who had a conference there and asked me to tag along. I, of course, accepted! Although I was (and still am) in much need of a chilling holiday, I decided to jump right into it and do as many things as possible during the weekend, to live the fullest of experiences -and I succeeded! I realized I hadn’t been there since my 25th birthday, so it’s been nearly 5 years!…

Havana, Part II: Discovering Vedado

Vedado

Vedado is a neighborhood west to Havana’s better-known districts of Old and Central Havana. If you are on a guided your, you will most likely end up there because it’s where you can find the famous Tropicana night club, together with the Hotel Nacional, one of Havana’s most prominent landmarks, or the FOCSA building (the tallest in Cuba!). But Vedado is actually much larger than that area, and extends a long way to the west. Walking through El Malecón (Havana’s famous promenade) from…

Tears are words that need to be written

Tears are words

Contrary to what you may believe, this is not a sad post. “Tears are words that need to be written”. I once read that quote in Paulo Coelho’s blog. Back when I could read Paulo Coelho. This week has reminded me of that statement more than ever, because I have cried. Uncontrollably, like an erupting volcano; like a child, senselessly. And the worst was that I, the queen of introspection, could not pinpoint what was wrong with me, after having…

Rocking Stephen West’s Boneyard Shawl!

Boneyard Shawl

It’s been a long long time since I posted about knitting. I must confess that since I am more versed into photography lately, my time to knit has decreased, and with the weather being sooo hot out there, I just think less about picking up my needles. You know what I actually love doing during the summer months? Crocheting handbags! -but I’ll get to that another day. Last year during the Craftsy sale, I signed up for the Shawlscapes class, where…

I shoved away my greed, making room for my passion to grow

Quote

This month I have made an outrageous expense. Maybe this won’t seem like a lot to you, or it will, but I spent nearly $2000 on a new photo camera. Just for the record, that is more than I paid for my very first car! It makes you wonder what kind of car that was, right? … Jokes aside, it is not like I am against spending money but I usually do not spend big chunks at once. I often…

Havana, Part I: a night on the city’s outskirts

Boyeros

Havana (La Habana, in Spanish) was the first stop in our 3-weeks Cuba trip. We had heard so much about it that we figured it was worth it to stay there for a whole week. When everybody thinks of Havana, the first picture popping up is that of Old Havana, with its old majestic buildings that near the status of ruins. However, there are other areas that are important to visit if one is to understand how Cubans live. Old Havana, although…
