Old & New

Me encanta este salón que he visto en la revista Nuevo Estilo. La combinación de elementos clásicos y modernos. La luminosidad de la habitación. Y sobre todo, el mood board colocado sobre el mueble del fondo, que añade personalidad y diversión a la decoración.

I love this living room from the magazine Nuevo Estilo. The combination of old and new elements. The light of the room. And specially, the mood board at the end, that adds personality and fun to the room.

New beginnings

I love those times of the year when we are given a chance to start again. And again.
January, a new year. A whole 12 months to make yourself better now that you are going to start cycling to work, or running in the morning. And, of course, only eating organic food from now on.
March, spring, spring, spring! We have more time for long drinks with friends, organize BBQs and go for long walks on the weekend.
June, summer is here! You can go anywhere you choose and be someone else for a couple of weeks! Or just be a more relaxed you at home!
September, the end of the summer... but the beginning of a new life, where we promise to spend more time outside, cook for those we love, enjoy the evening with a good book... and call mum and sister at least once a week.
We may not actually do all these things, but we do some of them, if only for a while. And most importantly, we dream of who we can be. And that´s the first step.

Some journeys

I love traveling, but, most of the time, for me it´s about the destination (getting to know a different place, its people its culture...). The journey is just the way to get there. But sometimes, only sometimes, the journey becomes more important than the destination:
A Navimag trip from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales, Chile, around the fjords, the islands, and the glaciers of North Patagonia.
Riding in the roof of a train through amazing landscape from Riobamba to the Devil´s nose in Ecuador.
An impromptu road trip with good friends, from Oxford to Edinburgh, with time to barely see the Scottish capital but plenty of time to chat, to laugh, to listen to music...

Some of those things... that are important to us.
Those things, big or small, that make us smile.
Or, those, they always seem big... that make us angry!
Those things that make life what it is!
Just some of those things.
