Summer Roadtrip: Guanajuato

While we were in León we decided to make a day trip to one of my favorite cities in México: Guanajuato! I never get tired of this beautiful city, its architecture, the cultural and historic legacy everywhere you go and amazing food.


First we walked around town and went to the University, a must when you visit the city.


We later visited the Teatro Juárez, it’s the main theatre in the city and an emblematic architecture building. If you have the chance to in you have to do it, and don’t miss the opportunity to go with a guide that will explain the history behind every little detail of decoration and construction of the theater, you just have to tip him at the end.





We then met a group of friends and spent some time hanging out with them.

We decided that it was time to eat so we headed to the best place to eat… the market! The outside of the market is beautiful but once inside you find colorful stands with fruit, vegetables, and all kinds of prepared mexican food like tacos, tostadas, guisados, etc.


After eating we took a walk to the Pipila lookout. I recommend to take the cable car to the top unless you are in great shape and don’t mind a steep climb. Let me tell you that halfway there I had to stop and recover for a couple of minutes. No matter what way you choose the view is definitely worthy and great to see the entire city and its colorful buildings.


After that we just walked more around the city and went to a “Callejoneada”, during which local musicians dress up in traditional 17th century costumes make their way through the cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways of Guanajuato while playing music, singing popular folk songs, telling stories and telling local legends. No photos of that since I had no battery left, but definitely a great way to end the day before making our way back to León.

Have you being to Guanajuato? What are the things you recommend visiting?



Summer Roadtrip: León

After San Miguel de Allende we went to León and called it home for a couple a days, we went shoe shopping and visited the city center.


Even though León is more a modern city, famous for its leather goods, the city center is a beautiful and cultural place.


We took a couple of days to take things slow and enjoy the city, taking in the culture and food. Preparing for our next stop: Guanajuato!

Stay tuned for more photos of the road trip!

Have you ever been to León? I want to know!



Time Goes By Pretty Fast

Time goes by pretty fast
Maybe I didn’t realize until a while ago
Maybe I always knew it was not meant to last.
But time goes by so fast,
Sometimes in a glimpse of an eye
Sometimes a little more
But time is all that I have and what I lack.
Seconds, hours, days, months go on
You’re still on my mind every once in awhile.
With you, time was slower,
and somehow faster
Now you’re gone and the feeling is gone,
Like I’m numb.
But time heals everything
And time goes by pretty fast
So maybe I’ll forget you soon
Soon enough to have time again.
So here’s to time, so it goes on pretty fast.

Dreams Of A Past Life

The other day I dreamt about you
It was weird as f*ck
It left me thinking about you
And how you’ve been
I wanted to reach out
To talk to you for the old times sake
But then I realized you wouldn’t care
Honestly it kills me that we’re not friends
But we wanted different things
We couldn’t put out differences apart
So we chose to fight
You called me crazy
I called you a jerk
Which is what you are,
because you broke my heart
And even now, when I dream of you
Even when I think of the good times we had
There’s a voice in the back of my mind saying
“Don’t go back to what hurt you
Don’t go back to the one who broke you
You’ve come a long way
To let him win again would be a waste”
So I didn’t reach out
I didn’t text you
I didn’t call
You’re in the past
And my future is next
I hope you’re good
I hope you’re doing fine
And that this dream I had
Was just a reminder to never go back

Summer Roadtrip: San Miguel de Allende

The past month was a little hectic, I did a little roadtrip through central México with two of my friends. We had such an amazing time! We visited so many beautiful places, ate delicious food and spent some quality time together.

One of my friends lives in Mexico City, so I don’t see her very often; and my other friend is from the Netherlands so it was really nice to see her again. The three of us met while studying abroad in Prague last year and we got to travel together during the summer, so it was nice to repeat it this year in Mexico.

Ana and Anne, (yes I know, I know) started the trip in Mexico City without me because I was busy that first week. Then we met in Queretaro for a few hours to have lunch and start our trip together.


We spent our first day in San Miguel walking around the city center.


At night we went to one of my favorite spots in town, Clandestino Hotel. It has the prettiest rooftop bar and it’s not as expensive as other bars in San Miguel. This hotel is seriously so pretty, I highly recommend staying there and/or going for drinks.


The second day was a busy one. We went to a hotel inauguration and then to a little vineyard, picked some grapes and the did some grape stomping. We partied all day and by the time we went back to bed we were exhausted but happy.


The next day we went for breakfast and walked some more around town, then in the afternoon we took a bus and arrived to León.

To be continued…

Have you been in San Miguel? What are your favorite spots there?


This is how I love you

I love the smell of wet dirt, the crickets singing in the dark,
the way the grass moves when the wind blows,
the way the full moon lights up the water,
the colors in the sky when the sun is setting and breeze of chilly wind while I’m walking makes me feel alive.
I like the feeling of the moonlight in my face when I go to bed and the warm sunlight when I wake up.
Nothing makes me feel more like home than the feeling of clean sheets in my bed against my tired body after traveling and a homemade chicken soup.
I like talking, I love hearing, but I like being alone with my own thoughts;
getting lost in the infinity of possibilities, of ideas and moments that could’ve been but weren’t, the ones that were, are and will be.
I love seeing people smile when they’re walking down the street, babies playing and kids being kids.
I enjoy slow paced afternoons talking about everything and nothing at all, making people laugh, think and improve is a hobby of mine, and even if I never say it I really hate red wine.
I love the goosebumps I get when hearing a new song, people’s honesty and watching bad movies.
I like talking to myself and laughing at my own bad jokes.
I love the smell of fresh bread, the feeling of chocolate melting in your mouth, the bitterness of a beer passing through my throat and the way a good meal makes me dance of happiness.
I love love. I love simple. I love sweaters and cold weather.
I think everything can be pretty and good.
I cry with romantic movies and I love me a good mystery to solve.
I love shopping and I can be dramatic, I believe that everything can be solved with a little bit of talking.
I love sleeping until late in the morning and staying up at night. I love mid day naps and the smell of firewood just being lit.
I deeply enjoy the sound of the wind going through the trees’ leaves, almost like bells calling for the rain.
I love coffee and the sound rain makes when crashing against a window,
the reflection of water in a dark surface when the sun hits it,
and out of the blue late nights with friends that turn into mornings.
I like aerial views and going to new places. I love freedom and independence.
I love old buildings and taking photos, living in the moment and remembering the old days.
I love the feeling of air conditioning in a hot wet summer day, the gloomy look in the northern countries and a snow day.
I love what I want and I do what I do.
But over all things, I love YOU the most. It’s true.

My Trending Stories

Hello everyone! I wanted to share with you a really cool thing that’s happening in my life right now. It involves two of the things I love the most: writing and the internet.

If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a collaborator for a new website called My Trending Stories!! That’s right, I’ll be writing for MTS – where I just posted my first article so check it out, it’s about being away from the people you love and how I survive any kind of long distance relationship.

How exciting is that I’m doing it!? I’ll still be blogging from here, so don’t worry cause I’m not going anywhere. I’ll be posting 2 or 3 times a week, maybe more, on MTS so be sure to stayed tune to my twitter account, and to the blog, where I’ll share the posts.

I’ll be posting different content in here than on MTS, but occasionally I’ll post the same on both, so expect lots of writing!

I’m really happy about these and I’m looking forward to see where this takes me.

Thank you for reading me and I’ll talk to you soon!




When asked to describe myself I would say I’m a happy person. But lately I feel like I’m not myself. I don’t have motivation or energy to do anything, not even to do the things I like. It’s like being numb and tired all the time, and it sucks. I’ve been trying to think what might be causing this, and even though my depression and anxiety has some to do with it, it feels like something else is happening this time.

What has changed in my life in the last month?

Were those changes positive?

How am I feeling with all of that happening?

What about the people in my life?

I asked myself those questions (and more) when I was thinking about it, and for a while it felt like it was all me. But then, this morning, I was reading something and it was along the lines of “you don’t need negative people in your life, you don’t need any vampires sucking away you energy”. That was it.

For a while now I’ve been cutting toxic people from my life and getting away from drama and bs, but energy vampires? I kinda never really thought about it until now. What’s an energy vampire? Well, they’re the people who drain your energy, they only “take” from you. They can be friends, maybe your family or even your significant other, even some you just talk to at work. Here’s an old, but really cool post about it that I found.

Honestly, I have lots of those in my life, starting with my family, and since I’ve been spending a lot of time home it makes perfect sense that I’m feeling this way. Especially since when I go out for a while or I’m on my own I feel a little better.

So, what should I do?

Well, for starters I’m analysing every relationship I have and how it works, how it makes me feel? at the end of the day does it make me feel like I enjoyed myself or incredibly tired? Then I’m spending time on my own and with the people I know that make me feel better and happy, that inspire me and motivate me. Yes, sometimes it’s hard because maybe people we love can be stealing your energy. What I’m doing in those cases – like with my family- is being in control of the situation and trying to spend more time doing other stuff than engaging on situations that take my energy away and make me feel down.

Maybe, some would call it selfish but I don’t think it is. It’s something we all should do in order to become the better versions of ourselves. It’s a process, so it won’t happen overnight, and we also meet new people every now and then so we should be aware of how a relationship is affecting us.

What do you think of energy vampires? How do you handle this?



Free Desktop Wallpaper

I’ve been thinking on what to design and give to you guys for free. I’m still working on the planner for the next half of the year, so that was not an option. But the other day I was going thru one of my favorite blogs (Design Love Fest) and they have a super cool section called “Dress Your Tech“, and being the sucker for wallpapers that I’m I thought I could make one for you.

So here it is, my first desktop wallpaper. It features one of my favorite phrases about travel and a pretty golden typography.



I hope you like it! As always, feedback is more than welcomed in the comment section and in any of my social media.

Have a great week!!
