So this month was all about getting back to the routine after summer. The transition was much smoother than I thought thanks to the (two) public holidays Barcelona had which included an amazing 4-festival called La Mercè.
After a summer of indulgence and living easy, I said goodbye to Tim and met with my friend Marita for a short adventure in Eastern Europe.
We left Turin almost at the very end of August. Our destination was Paris. We were to drive through Switzerland and France.
I was expecting a pretty drive, lots of trees, etc. but the scenery I saw during the upcoming three days was beyond anything I could have imagined.
This is a short note on what made that drive so memorable.
Antes de comenzar mi doctorado nunca había visitado España. No tenía cómo imaginar cuáles eran las consecuencias de ser una colonia española.
Someone very special (I wonder who) gifted Tim tickets for the BBK Live music festival in Bilbao.
We made this the perfect occasion to explore northeastern Spain. We packed the car with camping gear and off we went to discover everything we could between Barcelona and Bilbao in just a few days.
June’s weekends were the opportunity to visit two new cities for the first time!
