As usual, I'm a few weeks months behind but oh well. The last three months had been kind of hectic, but I already wrote a rant about it on Flickr so I won't (extensively) repeat myself. But to sum it up in a few words, I graduated, found a job - or rather a job found me -,started another degree, pitched a project with two friends (all that at the same time) and all hell broke loose. Not in a bad way, but in a 'i'm overwhelmed help me please' way.

But this photos are from a more peaceful and quiet era (do I sound like a granny yet?), when I wasn't yet quitting jobs because of the amount of stress or trying to release a videogame. But hey, some people were conquering countries at my age, so I think I still have some catch up to do.

Anyway, El Campello (my friend's town, with whom we stayed and to whom we are incredibly indebted) and Alicante were beautiful. We ate too much, slept too little and had to drive a lot of kilometres in few days, but as usual it was worth it.

My next stop is Warsaw, where we are heading next Monday. Expect many photos. Probably late as usual but I'm really looking forward to it, despite the amount of work (I have exams in two weeks, and too many brain parts to remember) or the flu that I so conveniently caught two days ago. Sigh. Anyhow, if anyone knows good places to visit in the city, all suggestions are welcome!

Poble Sec, Barcelona

I had this blogpost in drafts for a long time (two months maybe?). I started to write a text to accompany it - something about creativity, procrastination, and life choices - , but I think that I will leave the rant for another time. I already uploaded one along with my last photo on Flickr, in case you are curious. Meanwhile, enjoy the photos. There are only a few, but still have like five photoshoots to edit (among them, Vienna and Bratislava) so maybe there will be something else to look at soon.

Barcelona - Christmas

Because, obviously, the best time to upload pics of Christmas lights is a month after Christmas is over.

Cake and tea. Finally.

Today I did something I haven't done in a long long time: I baked a cake. I can't believe I used to do this at least once every two weeks or so, sometimes even more often. Oh, where did my food blogger days go? Sometimes I wonder if it would be a good idea to start another food blog (as you may know, my previous domain expired and was bought by someone else :S) because I kind of miss it. Then I remember that I've had weeks when my diet consisted basically of morning cereals, cookies, cafeteria food and coffee. Lots of coffee. And that although coffee does indeed look good on camera, it doesn't really count as a recipe (especially one you can repeat every week). 

But today I actually did cook something worth sharing, at least in photo form. The original recipe was Kamran's (The Shophisticated Gourmet) "Yellow Birthday Cake", which I slightly adapted (the cake batter was delicious. Moist and fluffy as a cake should be)  There was no birthday to celebrate, but I've been on holidays for a week already and it's almost New Year and why not? There's always something worth celebrating. I still have pictures of Barcelona to share with you (full of Christmas lights :D) but I thought this photos had a festive enough feeling as well ;)

How are your holidays going? Do you usually bake/cook a lot during those days? I don't like to spend the whole week in the kitchen, but I do enjoy cooking something more special. After all, it's the only time of the year I have the time to do so :P
