Personal month overview June
"This place looked super beautiful, the waves smashed on the stones and while Jens and Leyla dove into the sea I made a lot of pictures."
Personal month overview in June. Be prepared for a lot Spain spam, because we went on holiday this month. After the not so positive experience from last year we were ready for this one with a big house which we could use.
The holiday did start with a long drive by car for the three of use, because we couldn't leave Leyla behind of course. When we went on holiday we had a stop in France were we slept and that trip went perfect. We left at 0.30 in the night and already arrived at 8.30 in the morning.
The French turned out to be less flexible than we hoped for after a whole night of driving, because they kept on telling use could enter the house at 5 because it had to be cleaned and we could wait outside. While we walked around the park we saw there were a lot of empty houses and we could also have slept in one of those houses, but the French insisted. So we had to wait one long day, something you really don't want after a night of driving, but that was all we could do. And after a day like that all you want is pizza haha and after we bought it we found out there was no oven, so this is how we did it.
After a really short night, we drove again at 2.30 in the night we were in the car for the last part and arrive in Spain in the morning. We were supposed to arrive at 12 in the afternoon, but because we decided to drive during the night we arrived at the house (after doing some grocery shopping) at 10 already. Even though we were early we were welcomed warmly with a cup of coffee and they were very busy cleaning the house and with a six pack of Catalan beer we felt very welcome. That is another way of approaching your customers. And that view we could enjoy for those 10 days really was amazing and I didn't get tired of it once.
The blue at the end of the picture is the sea by the way with just in front of that Blanes. We had a very relaxed holiday, also because Leyla was with us of course. She is always very enthusiastic and that is why you can't easily take her to busy places, because it excites her too much and she wants to jump on everybody and pull her line very hard. But on the beach she was one happy dog.
In the beginning she was a bit scared for the high waves but that changed very quickly. She dove full into them to get the balls we threw and we were at the beach almost everyday. We also did a trip to Parc Guell, it was very beautiful but honestly I was a bit disappointed. Because if you walk 30 minutes you have seen everything there.
On Sunday morning I went to a market in a village nearby. It was supposed to be very busy so I decided to go all by myself, it was cloudy so perfect weather to go to a big market. And the market was really big with a lot of clothes, belts, bags and shoes as you see a lot in markets. But also Spanish sausage, churro's and pottery. I took a shirt for Jens, a big sausage for Jens and Leyla, churro's to eat on the way, which I shared with Jens and two pottery bowls to use for pictures.
We also went to see a castle in Blanes from which you have a super nice view. Unfortunately it was super busy and quite small so I went to see the view from the top by myself, while Jens and Leyla waited downstairs on a more quiet spot.
We also found a super quiet beach on a windy day. This place looked super beautiful, the waves smashed on the stones and while Jens and Leyla dove into the sea I made a lot of pictures.
When it comes to food it was really boring. We cooked almost every night and got pizza once and ate quite healthy and fresh, just like we do at home. We had the plan to eat in a restaurant once, but it didn't happen.
A very lovely holiday in which we relaxed very much with the three of us and Leyla also enjoyed it very much. We were supposed to drive home at Friday night, but a few days before we already decided we would drive at the end of the afternoon so we would arrive home at night and had a few hours of sleep when we arrived.
So at around 3.30 PM we drove home and after a very long drive we arrived at 3.45 AM at home, got the stuff out of the car and fell a sleep in our own bed. We slept until 11.30 AM, which made it a good decision to drive in the afternoon already. After I had a lovely shower in my own shower it was time to do groceries, washing clothes and groceries haha. And on the Market they had fresh flowers and they just make me so happy.
Saturday night we ate fries also something I looked forward to besides my bed and shower. On Sunday my parents came by to have a barbecue because they were also going on holiday and I had one more week off from work.
I spend that week well with a lot of new recipes, I was a lot in the kitchen and enjoyed it very much as well. I also planned a day to visit Antwerp to find some new cool hotspots. But once you are in Antwerp you do want to visit some stores and the Holland and Barret store just made me so happy with all the flours being in the sale, so with a big bag I went to a clothing store where I found this lovely dress.
And after that last week of relaxation last week I had to get back to work. It felt really bad when the alarm went off, but when I was at work it went by very quickly. The second day I had a day of internship at the work shop which was very much fun, I got to work in the work shop and also got the change to weld a bit.
And the day after that I had to work late on a location and with this kind of dinner that is not a bad thing at all.
I have had a lovely month, as you can imagine. Too bad it is already over and everybody around me is going on holiday now. But I do have something very beautiful to look back on.
