Galicia

  I spend the previous weekend crossing Portugal to get to the North of Spain, to Galicia. After a long bus trip, we arrived in Cambados. After lunch we visited O Grove and La Toja.





  After a short cruise trip we went to a place called A Lanzada. There, near the beach, there was a hill with a beautiful chapel on the top of it, where many people were praying and chanting. The sunset there was breathtaking.






  On the next day we visited Santiago de Compostela. This city is one of the most famous pilgrims destinations.






  I really loved the city old buildings. It reminded me the Italian mediavel villages.

Strasbourg

  My  class won a trip to the European Parliament to participate in the Euroscola Day on the 29th of April. We spent three days in the lovely city of Strasbourg. When I was walking on those streets I felt like I was in one of those old movies with classic french music. The houses are so beautiful and the envoirment so peaceful.





  The beautiful Notre Dame was the tallest cathedral I've ever seen. I couldn't get all the building in one photo.





  
  We visited a little old-fashioned biscuit shop where they also sold these metal boxes with old drawings. So lovely.




  One of my favourite parts of the city was la petite france. This part of the city was really quiet. You could almost just hear the sound of the water. People passed by us on their bicycles, peacefully. Almost all the houses had beautiful plants on the balcony. I wish I could spend some days in one of those.



  In the middle of the afternoon the weather brought us what we had feared all day: rain. Therefore we went to a cafe and we ate a crepe. It was not so delicious as we tought, but the envoirnment and the space were very pleasent. 


  Fortunately when we went back to the hotel we found a kiosk in the street that had the most amazing crepes I have ever eaten in my whole life. .

  On the next day we went for a last walk on the city (and also some last-minute souvenir shopping). I couldn not get tired of Strasbourg, it's such a quiet and nice city. You feel like you are not even in a city, because there is no rush to go to work, everybody goes slowly on their bicycles. There's always a market with flowers and pastry in every corner. It's an amazing place to live and to visit.



  Au revoir!

Beach

  The rain stopped and the sunny days are back. It's spring but it feels like summer. No better way to enjoy that than a walk on the beach.

  Eddie seems to be a quiet dog, but actually he must be one of the worst dogs in the world! He never stops, he runned all afternoon and chased all the people who were walking on the beach. He's really crazy, but I adore him. He appears in almost all photos because he was always chasing something.

Spring Flower

  Spring arrived on a sunny day, perfect for a walk. My first flower shoot of the season: this tiny cute flower.
