Güéjar Sierra

After a little more than 10 hours of driving from Barcelona, we arrived in a small village called Güéjar Sierra late at night. We luckily found a local restaurant which was still open and able to serve some tapas and wine. It felt pretty magical, with lights and laugh. 

But when we got our Airbnb, there are unexpected surprise, that was a one of my worst Airbnb experience.. The host was nice, waiting us until late night, and greet us with his noisy dogs. but the room had strong smell of trash, and flies everywhere. We thought it was nightmare, but so tired, no energy to complain. I guess I killed 15 ish flies :( But because of the fxxking situation, we could wake up and leave early the next morning.  And we were able to have a full experience of a beautiful morning in Güéjar Sierra!

Güéjar Sierraという小さな街に バルセロナから車で1日で移動するという無謀な計画をたて、キャムは10時間以上運転するハメになり。。 夜遅くに到着し、ものすごく疲れ果て、けれど バルセロナと全く違う、アンダルシアの小さな街に興奮して 一つラッキーにも空いていたレストランで ワインとタパスで乾杯、やっと休める〜と Airbnbでブックした部屋にチェックインしたら そこがびっくり!最悪で、 見た目は綺麗なのに ゴミ捨て場か??って匂いで ハエはブンブン飛んでて。。。 セージを焚いてもエッセンシャルオイルでも匂いはごまかせず、とにかく限界で寝たは寝たけど 朝日と共に起きて 速攻部屋をチェックアウト、でもそれが反対に良くって この朝日と街の美しさに感動し、コーヒーとクロワッサンをゲットして ハイキングに向かい、とっても有意義でいい1日を過ごせた日でした。あの部屋が良かったら、疲れてたし いつものように朝はゆっくり過ごしてただろうし、こんなに1日楽しめなかったよねぇ〜と:)うまくできてるものだ。

Spain trip

I am traveling in Spain this summer. My first time Spain, not much being planned.  I wanted to see something new, and renew my passion for life and creation.  My time here is already half passed but still feeling like the same old me... But a small shift is happening, after a month of staying in a different country, breathing different air, eating and drinking local foods and water, and hearing different sounds. My cells are renewed. During this time, a lot of old memories came up, especially ones from when I first moved to America. Those memories are sweet and sour. I was so full of expectations for my life, and myself. - Before I experienced some pain and setbacks. Those memories come and go, reminds me of that feeling of expectation and my invisible source of passion. Some smoldering passion is somewhere inside me. A passion I am hoping I can start to light up.
