No mobiles yet, so what do you do?

It may look like the guy on the left is reading his iPad. But…

‘No mobiles yet, so what do you do?’
Just stare and think over the day that has gone by like the other guy on the right.

Back to the city

Sometimes it’s just to hard to make a choice between the color version and the black-and-white edit of  a photo. Which one do you prefer?

Corridor

Ireland

Sure I do love the roughness of Dublincity, the wilderness and nature of the island and the beautiful views along the Atlantic ocean’s coastline. But last year, my connection with Ireland, due to circumstances, felt something like walking up and down the corridor. Travelling in and out not just to enjoy myself on holiday trips, but to be around and support my sister in a fight against a cruel sickness.

This picture, taken at EpicIreland in Dublin, reminded me of what we went through in 2016; going through dark moments but having fate to find light in the end again.

Lunch and then…

Why it seemed that the little village had died out? It was late in the afternoon and we just enjoyed a really good spanish lunch in one of the small restaurants of Calig, called ‘Casa Arayo’. If ever we are in the neighborhood again we will definitely try to visit this local place for a fantastic meal once more. And I would like to recommend to drive up here for you as well.
Afterwards we went out for a stroll through the tiny streets which I found were remarkably quiet and almost desolate at first. After walking for about half an hour,  the heath of mid-day became too hot, so we decided to get back to our car and enjoy the airco. We headed home to get us some rest on the veranda, or even better, inside the house, hidden from the sun. Because that’s what everybody had chosen to do when they finished lunch.

Siesta!

Calig Roadworks

As we had to STOP while on the road in Spain somewhere between Barcelona and Valencia near the small village ‘Calig’ we had a moment to enjoy the beautiful view ahead of us. So actually I own this picture thanks to the ‘Calig Roadworks’. The dust in front was slowly working it’s way up in the summer’s heath.
