Two months later and I’m writing my final installment about this trip! Well, I’ve been thorough, you have to give me that!

I will be back with some news (what to do with a constipated cat, how about that topic?) and some wardrobe news, but first I want to share the last two days of my trip to Andalucia and the places I saw – Cadiz and Ronda.

The most beautiful place

I’m having a hectic time at work, but when I looked back at the photos from my trip to Andalucia I realized there are still some I want to share with you (and to be honest, its kind of my diary as well!). So I will try and finish this, even though you probably are pretty bored by now:). So today I will show you the most beautiful place I visited: Alkazar.

Seville – and I didn’t get a haircut!

This travel diary from Andalusia is taking forever! But honestly, so much happened in that week and I saw some really amazing places, so forgive me! At the moment Spring has sprung again and I have a crazy busy time at work. That week in Spain seems a long, long time ago.

We stopped in Seville for two nights so the tempo was not as hectic. But it was of course in Seville I got my cough so after those two days I was a bit under the weather.

I really liked Seville, a big vibrant city with interesting architecture and some big parks. The first big building we stopped to admire was built in honor of a big Fair in the 1920´s and the square had loads of beautiful tile artwork depicting history and different parts of Spain and South America. Close by was the beautiful park that intrigued me and I took lots of pictures here. So enjoy!

Its Monday – so this must be Cordoba!

Its funny how when you travel in a group, getting marched from one place to another and everything taken care of, you suddenly loose your sense of time and place. It happened to several people in my group in Andalusia and even more when we came to the end of our tour. “Where we had that great meal, in Cordoba or Granada? No, it was Cadiz!”. I kind of remember a film (that I never saw but remember the title) when I was a teenager called “Today is Saturday, so this must be Paris” or something similar. Ofcourse when I was young I laughed and thought it ridiculous, today not so much…

View over Malaga from the mountains, Bye for now!

As you can imagine, my trip to Spain was filled with impressions and experiences, some I really haven’t processed until now because of my damn cough! I am still coughing and its been four weeks but thankfully I’m slowly healing. I’m back to work and will be traveling on Tuesday for the first time.

So because I’m having a hard time finding the energy to blog through work-weeks I will finally give you yet another installment of my Andalusian trip:).

This day 2 was one I had been looking forward too a great deal: Alhambra and Granada.

Changes and projects

On the 14th of April I turned 60. It´s not really a deal-braker, I still truly believe that age is just a number – but I guess every decade, and especially the point when you “pass over” is a good time to reflect on what you have done, not done and what you want to do, right?

I was celebrated by my new colleagues and the bouquet included this magnificent peony. I had no idea, but as it blossomed it also changed color. Kind of reflective of age….

Let there be light!

When I was a child I lived in the north of Sweden for 8 years and the winters were a time of perpetual darkness. Once in a while you would get a northern light, which was amazing, but the rest of the time was total darkness. As a child I can´t remember that it had a huge impact on my life, but as I have grown older those months have become harder and harder to get through…

Geneva 2: Where did the chocolate go?

A view from the plane. Beautiful isn´t it? Actually Switzerland has become a favorite amongst filmmakers in Bollywood. Yes, you read it right. Indian filmmakers in Bollywood just loves those mountains. And because of that and the huge impact Bollywood has on the youth in India, Switzerland has also become a favorite honeymoon-spot for young Indians. All according to a friendly steward I sat next to on my flight between Zurich and Geneva.
