Sevilla by hop on-hop off bus

Ávila and me

The title says everything, some photos from March from the beautiful city of Ávila. Rainy and cloudy day, but so nice to walk around the walls of the old city… Enjoy the photos!

El título lo dice todo, algunas fotos sacadas en marzo desde la hermosa ciudad de Ávila. Un día lluvioso y anublado, pero muy agradable para caminar alrededor de las murallas de la antigua ciudad… ¡Disfruta de las fotos!

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.

Los Hervideros

Los Hervideros or the place where the hot magma meets the ocean is a special point on the Lanzarote’s touristic map. “The boiling (pot of) water”, as it’s the direct translation from Spanish, has its origin back in time when the volcano Montañas del Fuego erupted in 1730 for 6 years (2056 days, exactly), covering approx. 200 square kilometers and extended to the western coast along a 20km wide front. The eruption spit between 3 and 5 cubic km of lava. During the 6 year eruption, more than 30 volcanic cones were formed in at least 5 eruptive phases, aligned along a volcano-tectonic fracture more than 14 km long. The eruption destroyed fertile land and 26 villages; the resulting famine eventually forced the majority of the population to leave the island. Most of the leaving families settled down in Texas (US) and put the bases of the San Antonio city (the seventh larger city in US). There is a monument in San Antonio that commemorate its Spanish Canarian roots.

Back to Los Hervideros, the road, the balconies that make the access possible near the confrontation of the lava and the ocean are all done thanks to the great man, César Manrique. Enjoy the photos.
