Holiday break for two

Back in August K and me had the chance of going out of town for a few days, just the two of us. After a few indecisions on where should we go, we ended up going to Sevilla — where we had been back in February — but we couldn’t have had a better time.

That trip can be summarised in just a few key words: beer, jamón serrano, cocktails, pool, walking, wine, tapas.

Yeah… those were really nice days.

NYC, I’ll see you later.

And quickly we got to the end of the New York city photo batch. This was an incredible trip. Leo was 1 year old and went to the other side of the Antlantic for the first time. We were aprehensive and a little bit scared of what it meant to have such a long trip with a one year old, but she behaved like a champ. We would definitely do it again in a heartbeat.

NYC day 6

I recently turned my instagram private, due to a number of things, including what I talked about last post, and I’ve had a number of people, fellow teachers, coming to me saying that I should keep the account open, that they understand but that we also need to have a life outside of school, and it shouldn’t stop us from having more exposure. Which is all very true. I was so surprised by the messages that I immediately made the account public again. Thank you all for those words. I really really appreciate it and it made me very happy! 🙂

On the sixth day around New York we strolled around as usual and made it to Brooklyn at the end of the day, where we admired the most beautiful sunset right on the Brooklyn bridge.

Just gorgeous — and it’s these pictures that make me miss this city.

 

Here’s a funny story…

K has been uploading his gorgeous NYC pictures on mutelife.com and today, as I was going through his latest post, I realised that I was maybe missing a few pictures from our trip to New York. I thought ‘hey, why not have a new post with the remaining NYC pics I have left to upload?’ Well, that’s a good idea!… Turns out I only uploaded the first day and a half of our trip. I’ve got a shipload of pictures to upload here! This work thing is just getting out of hand…sheesh.

So without any further ado…

And that’s the end of day two in New York city.

Come back tomorrow for more.

 

NYC from the lens.

I’ve been around here for a while now, and it’s amazing the amount of people who come and go from this world. Then there are the ones who stay and we still keep contact, and the ones who go and never come back, and the ones who go and come back after a while. That’s the case with this girl. I’ve been in love with her photos for such a loooooong time, and her blog was one of the first I really started following.

I’ve been following her for so so so long that I don’t even know for how long, but she’s amazing. She’s the kind of girl who, despite all struggles, always has a smile on her face. If that alone wasn’t enough, she takes awesome photos. I’ve been in love with her photos for such a long time now. I love her candid style and how she manages to capture so many emotions in every pic. She’s one of the young photographers/bloggers out there who really inspires me. She inspires me to smile everyday and to live life to the fullest, while taking photos. She’s amazing. She has moved to Copenhagen with her husband and pug, and her new blog is precisely about that. CPHbound is her new place. I found out she moved to Copenhagen not long ago, and got a little sad, because we were booked for a trip to Copenhagen this summer, but opted for New York instead. Oh well… One day.

Make sure you take a look at her blog, even if you have to use the translation feature.

Also here are some pics from NYC.
