[FlashBack] Youna in Galicia

Little Youna

In August 2005, I have the chance to stay in Calp in a workcamp. There a lot of people started the legend of the "Calpe Diem".

This september, 4 years later, some of the members of that spirit met again. The place chosen was Galicia (Santiago de Compostela and A Coruña). The excuse: Youna, a French friend decided to visit Spain. The route:

: Arrive in Santiago de Compostela. Talk a long time and had party using special flyers (Paris-Dakar?).

Saturday: Visit Santiago when the weather allowed us. Buy a cheese and be ripped off by an old farmer woman. Go to A Coruña (fast train!). Have party drinking using a Porron and eating peanuts.

: sleep ... and visit A Coruña , specially the Tower of Hercules (so big!).

Willy, Chiño and Youna (somewhere in Santiago de Compostela)

[FlashBack] Barcelona long weekend

As you know, I was in Barcelona due to Manu and Beas's wedding. But I had time to visit the city and spend time doing "other stuff".

Welcome party. Jorge, Nestor, Alberto prepared to Ponfi, Güelli, Miky and me (Ari arrived late) a welcome party, bringing some nice and orange stuff from Aldeasa. After the hotel kick-off meeting, we made "ther party". The next part is censored :-)

At morning, walking to Sagrada Familia with Miky. Manu and Bea's Wedding.

Munchkin game in a Kebab restaurant. Castellers de Cornellá exhibition.

Morning. Slow walk around Güell Park, maybe the most beautiful place in Barcelona, reading Gomorra (RobertoSaviano).

Evening. Visit Montjuïc hill. (Sorry, the photos are worst than bad)

Tuesday [FC Barcelona Day]

Camp Nou

Copa, Liga y Champions

Wednesday [Antoni Gaudí Day]

Cheap bus to the airport. Line 46 Plaza España - Aeropuerto Barcelona (El Prat) from 1.35€ (single ticket)

To reach, Montjuïc, the Funicular of Montjuïc is the most ecological, economical and confortable way of access to the hill. The Funicular of Montjuïc is integrated in the metro network and connection between both is at the metro station Paral·lel (Lines 2 and 3) all with the same ticket.

[Flashback] La Granja de San Ildefonso and Segovia. 25th July 2009

The Royal Palace of La Granja de San Ildefonso is an eighteenth-century palace, situated in the small town of San Ildefonso in the hills near Segovia, 80 km north of Madrid. The palace is in a restrained baroque style surrounded by extensive gardens in the French manner and sculptural fountains.

Only three times per year all twenty-six fountains are set to play, providing a memorable show:
  • 30th May
  • 25th July
  • 25th August
Remember to follow the man with the Spanish flag, because he is showing the route to the next fountain that will play.

So, this year, as 25th July was Saturday, we took the chance to go to "the fountains show". And after that, and a magician show, we went to Segovia in order to make a little visit (I have to wait for Cochinillo to the next visit).

Napoles - Emprendedores sociales 2009

From 2 to 9 of July, I went (with other mates) to Naples (Campania, Italy) in order to attend a course called Aventura Emprendedora Social. It was a really nice experience where I shared time with people from other associations and organizations, from Spain and of course from Italy. And we have time also to visit some places and enjoy our time there, for example eating "real" pizza.
