Porto – November 2012

As a gift for my birthday, along other gifts, I received this wonderful weekend trip to Porto (Portugal). The beauty of the city is astonishing, so I took about 500 photos in just 2 days. Of course, it would be impossible to post all the images here, but I’ll try to offer you the most representative ones.

The first day was an unusual mix of sun and shower rain, hot and freezing cold weather. Staying only 2 full days, we decided that the best way to see the city is to go on a sightseeing bus. For only 22 euros we had the yellow buses – 2 routes, “historical” and “castles” (110mins each) + one boat trip on the river Douro + free entrance to a Porto wine cellar.

The second day we had a better weather so we took the boat (the six bridges river cruise) and we had a wonderful river side walk. Now, enjoy the photos and visit Porto if you have the opportunity. It looks much better in reality.

For this trip I had a very androgynous look, not totally masculine or feminine. In the last year I tended to become more and more feminine, which is great, but the real me is androgynous. I hope you’ll like it.

Como un regalo para mi cumpleaños, a lo largo de otros regalos, recibí este viaje maravilloso por un fin de semana en Oporto (Portugal). La belleza de la ciudad es impresionante, así que saqué cerca de 500 fotos en tan sólo 2 días. Por supuesto, sería imposible publicar todas las imágenes aquí, pero os de ofreceré las más representativas.

El primer día tuve una inusual mezcla de sol y chubascos frios y el clima caliente – frío. Quedandonos sólo 2 días completos, hemos decidido que la mejor manera de ver la ciudad es ir en un autobús turistico. Por sólo 22 euros pagados, tuvimos los buses amarillos – 2 rutas, “históricos” y “castillos” (110mins cada uno) + un paseo en barco por el río Duero + entrada gratuita a una bodega de vino de Oporto.

El segundo día tuvimos un mejor clima, así que cogimos el barco (crucero de los seis puentes) y tuvimos un maravilloso paseo por el lado del río. ¡Ojalá!, disfruta de las fotos y visita Porto, si tienes la oportunidad. Se ve mucho mejor en la realidad.

Para este viaje he cojido un aspecto muy andrógino, no totalmente masculino o femenino. En el último año usé una imagen más femenina, lo que esta bien, nada que reprochar, pero el verdadero yo es andrógina. Espero que os guste.

Sunny day in Amsterdam

There are more than 3 years since my last visit in Amsterdam. The last time was for a new year party and all the days that I stayed (10!) there was no sun at all. But, yesterday was the first time that I’m in Amsterdam and it’s such a sunny atmosphere, no clouds at all and a warming sun. A great day to see the beautiful city, to enjoy the splendor of an old town preserved so well. Did you knew that A’dam is the city with the most well preserved old buildings in the world ? There are more than 6,000 monumental houses in this small city. And nothing compares to admire those buildings sitting on a bench in front of the (non-smelling) Canals in a bright sunny day. So, for my second day (yesterday) I’ve chose to hung around the old part (and not so touristic) of the city, in the area south bounded by Frederiks Plein. I don’t like the major touristic places because there is too much noise and dialects are distracting me from the beauty of the vicinities. Today I have some other plans: to visit the museum of purses and bags (sounds interesting, isn’t it ?), and to have some night walk around the famous Redlight District.  The next day maybe I’ll travel to Hague and Rotterdam, why not ? Enjoy the pictures and if you want to see full size you only have to click on them. Sorry about the distance used in these photos, but I had to manage taking the pictures by my own.
