Breakfast in Ávila

Browsing my photo folder I found these photos from my trip to the beautiful city of Ávila, in the heart of Spain. The fact is that from March until now I had few time to share these photos and now I must go on fast-forward… Here is the breakfast hall at Palacio de los Velada hotel (one of the best I ever stayed) and some photos around the public area of the palace. I remember that day: it was a rainy cloudy day and the temperature dropped a lot, so we delayed our tourist trip until near the lunch time. Oh, soon I’ll share more about the city of Ávila, it’s a jewelry of Spain!

Buscando en mi ordenador, encontré estas fotos de mi viaje a la hermosa ciudad de Ávila, en el corazón de España. El hecho es que desde marzo hasta ahora tenía poco tiempo para compartir estas fotos y ahora tengo que ir en avance rápido… Esta es la sala de desayuno del hotel Palacio de los Velada (uno de los mejores que me he alojado) y algunas fotos de área pública del palacio. Recuerdo aquel día era un día lluvioso y nublado, la temperatura bajó mucho, por lo que retrasa nuestro viaje turístico hasta casi las tardes. Oh, pronto voy a compartir más sobre la ciudad de Ávila, ¡es una joya maravillosa de España!

Saved by the Rain Gods – second episode

And now, the second part of the “Saved by the Rain Gods” adventure 🙂 . I couldn’t decide to put all the pictures in one big post, because there were too many photos so I split it in two. Don’t expect the third episode, hehehe, no, this is the last one. But Parque Pablo Picasso offers a good support for taking pictures, especially in the winter when it’s raining, it’s windy and cold – its near location and very structured architecture: stone, concrete, steel and green trees, grass, colorful flowers on the skyscrapers background, transform  the park in a good shooting studio. When the Rain Gods are soft-hearted, of course.

Saved by the Rain Gods – first episode

It’s a miracle how I could go out yesterday and not get wet by the rain. It was a shady day with some scattered showers and few times of rest; I used one of this quiet moments to get a walk and take some new photos. I was dressed with some fur and suede boots, which was pretty risky, but, in the final, everything went fine and I returned home without getting touched by the ruthless rain.
