Travel Diaries: Moscow


Getting to Moscow was a true journey.

I was in Berlin for a week and took a flight with my friend Cata to Moscow.

Cata and I had both passports EU and Chilean and that raised tons of doubts with the people from customs. They where the meanest and we where truly nervous. In the plane a baby cried all the way to Moscow and once we got to customs, an agent yelled at me in Russian and took my passport to the back to check stuff -weird- I was about to faint when she came back with the scariest face and said: something in Russian... and OK at the end. It was about 3 a.m. by now.
This is Cata
GOSHHH, picked our bags and waited for our friend Juan Pablo who was traveling from Italy to meet us.

The ticket office for the train to Moscow was closed and we had to wait in line for them to open under a cascade of freezing A/C. At 6am we could buy the ticket and get on the train and while Cata and Juan Pablo catch up I slept my way and my mood.

Three days in Ubud

Last month was a roller coaster ride and that's why I went AWOL from the blogosphere.

December hit the calendar and everything went crazy. Packing my bags and leaving them with a friend for three weeks, packing a little back pack for three weeks of vacation in Bali and Melbourne, last days of work and leaving Sydney. Uff! So much happening but enjoying every moment.

Many readers have been expecting this post, so here it goes!

From Denpasar airport expect an hour drive to Ubud center.

Ubud is a place where people smiles all day, everyone will offer their services (taxi is the most common), you will see temples every two meters, offerings in the street and sidewalks, many scooters and people smoking flavored cigarettes.

Travel Diaries: Barcelona Day One

This past June I visited Spain for the first time and I have to say I pretty much fell in love with this country. We visited Barcelona, Córdoba, Sevilla, Madrid and Toledo in 10 days.

We arrived from Rome on the night of the 14th because our flight was delayed. When you have your whole trip planned and booked this delays really make you loose time. I was traveling with my mom and she wanted to book everything in advance because June is high season.

Anyways, we decided to get up really early on the 15th so we could make the most of the day. 

We were staying next to Lesseps station so it was walking distance to the center of the city. At 8:15 we were on the entrance of Parc Guell with the app downloaded into my tablet (they open at 8:30 so we wanted to be the first people there). Gaudí for me is a genius with no precedent and I have admired his work since I was 19.
