My Summer in Menorca

Last summer in August, I flew to Menorca,the Balearic Islands. It is the most beautiful place I have ever seen in the world.

Life in my Home Town

In a far away place from La Mancha which I don't remember its name, I usually spend my holiday. I stayed there for two months in summer. Last year I was living with my father and this was fantastic.

My Hobbies:

My hobbies are, I suppose, those of a girl of my age.
I like travelling, but because of my work I could not go out very often. Particularly, I would like to go abroad and I would love to go to Maldivas Islands, but I find it very expensive.
Another of my hobbies, is to go to the cinema at weekends. I like both ancient and modern films, but especially horror films and thrillers.
But one of my favourite hobbies is reading. I like reading all kinds of books about different topics.
I would like to be able to enjoy these and others hobbies, but sometimes it is a hard work, to study and be able to perform

My first trip in France

The first time I travelled abroad was quite interesting.
We set off from Madrid to Gerona (France) which was at the weekend.
On Monday we continued our trip to France, where our cousings were waiting for us, because they live in Narbona.
Our staying there was brilliant, Narbona is a wonderful place and it has got very nice beaches. After a few days we had to come back, but next time, we will go by plane because the trip was too long.

Bye bye for now.

My Holiday in the Mediterranean Sea.

Hello everybody

I have been recently in Valencia, because it was the Grand Prix of motorracing, that has taken place in Cheste, a small town in the East of Spain. It lasted the whole weekend. I like motorcycling a lot. In the circuit there were about 120.000 people. It was very exciting to see the pilots riding at a great speed, and nobody had fallen in that race.

El Camino de Santiago

This summer, on the second week of September I went cycling with two friends of mine on the Way to Santiago. We visited a big area of the North of Spain on mountain bike for a non stop five days trip.

We started in Astorga (León) and our finish was set in Santiago de Compostela (Coruña). The experience was exciting because the landscape was great and the food was terrific!. I enjoyed both a lot.

I could meet people from different parts of Spain and many more from other countries in Europe.

The experience was gratifying and rewarding because you can see a millenary road where you meet and talk to people from places you have never heard before.


Africa is the name of my cousin. She is so cute and amazing. She is from Valencia. Her complexion is brown and with a very smooth skin, her hair is dark and long, her face is very attractive, her eyes are brown and beautiful and she looks really pretty. She has come to live with me to Madrid since last September. She is an excellent cook, her dishes are always delicious, the best one is "paella valenciana" I love it. Since Africa appeared she has changed all my life.

bye, bye from now

My dream to a famous city in Europe

Last year I went to Amsterdam with two friends. We flew in March so the weather was awful, it was raining all the time, and sometimes snowing too; but we went well equipped with our winter clothes. In the city there were many coffee shops which were decorated beautifully.
While we were walking along the street and avenues we could see that the windows of the houses were with any curtains, and pasengers could see the inside of the houses. It surprised us a lot.
We visited Anna Frank´s house where we discovered how she lived while she was hidden with all her family during the Second Wordl War.

My favourite town.

When I went to visit Segovia...(taken from my travelbook)

I have not visited Segovia since last year, and the most popular monuments for me are the Aqueduct that was built by the Romans, to bring water to the town from the Sierra of Fuenfría, the monastery of El Parral, where there live the monks called jéronimos. From that place there is a magnificent view of the Alcazar, a military palace, but it was taken as an example of the Walt Disney fairy teales castle.

Then, there are beautiful Romanesque churches, san Lorenzo, Santa Cruz.

My best trip

My best trip was in January, 2007. My boyfriend and I went to Salamanca. Fortunately, we could go by train, although some days before many trains had been cancelled because of the snow. During the trip we saw that everything was covered with snow. We arrived at Salamanca at night, it was two degrees below zero and we went to a four-star hotel, which was fantastic! That night we went to see the town hall, which at night is so beautifully lighted. We were sight seeing all the following morning, and at dusk, we came back to Madrid by train without being able to forget that we had had a really good time.
