Bubbles and Sunrises

bubbles

Every summer, I go for a few weeks to visit my parents in Spain. We have an apartment at the beach and I love it there. However, in the summer months, Gandia, which is the name of the town, becomes land of the tits, tattoos, charred meat and bad music, and I like it a bit less. I lived there by myself for about six years when I attended uni, and I used to bartend and be immersed in the…

I don’t know where I’m going, but I’m walking the right path

I haven’t written a post about myself for quite some time. Not because I don’t have stuff to write about –my life this year is in turmoil– but because I hardly ever find the time, and when I finally sit down to write, there are too many thoughts buzzing in. This is the case right now, but I’ll try to seek for some clarity. Things are hectic in part because my work contract finishes by the end of summer, and…

Last bit of my Portugal lightning trip: the cityscape of Porto!

Three weeks ago I was in Portugal for the first time ever. It is not uncommon for Spaniards to not have visited our closest neighbors; perhaps the overly proximity pushes us to discover lands further away from our own, both culturally and aesthetically — who knows? I must say that for me, until quite recently, Spain and Portugal, or Spain and Italy, really were like tomatoe tomato. However, once I started paying attention to the small details I realized how wrong…

The textures of Porto

Hello from Portugal! Since last Wednesday, I have been in Porto (Portugal). I came here to attend a research conference and to present my work, but since I had never been to Portugal before, I figured it was worthwhile to extend my stay over the weekend and visit the city. I have to say I am loving it here: Porto is such a beautiful city, and the perfect place for foodies –even if you do not eat fish like me!…

Meet my favorite place in the universe: Austria

Austria is probably one of my favorite spots in the world. I was lucky enough to live in Salzburg for a year as an Erasmus student, almost ten years ago now. It was the first time that I lived far away from my family (which I was super excited about!), the first time I flew in a plane, the first time I experienced real winter, the first time I communicated daily in languages not my own, etc.! It really was…

Decorate your home with photographs: printing tips

Making good photography prints is a great way to decorate your home: it is cheap, unique and timeless, and it will allow you to create artwork that goes beyond the single photograph. For instance, you can play with combining different images to create visual effects. It is often not about shooting “the perfect photo” but just about throwing images together and letting the ensemble tell the story, in a similar fashion than when we build a mood board (scroll down for some Pinspiration!). So,…

What did you do for your Birthday? I worked out!

I’ve been a lousy blogger, and I’ve seriously left my photography account unattended this month, but I have a solid excuse: this has been the most hectic month! If you asked me in September what I expected to be doing in November, I would have probably told you that not much, except for throwing a big big big and fantastic 30th birthday party! Yay! Happy Birthday to me! However, things have taken quite an unexpected turn. For starters, we decided –almost…
