Something to read

They say this weekend is going to be rainy too. It’s almost June but it’s still chilly outside.

So the plan might be to stay home. Because of that, I have gathered some interesting materials to read, let me share them with you!

Thank you Eric Carlson and Jaroslaw for these great recommendations.

Have a happy weekend!



Let it rain

Today it’s been raining all morning.


The sky is grey, and it seems like the sun will not come out today.


But that’s ok. The sun is still shining somewhere else. It might shine here tomorrow too…


…“for after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Bucket List

2014 is not being a good year. It started off with a break-up, and that just set the tone…but 2014 is not over, and I am determined to make it a good year. I recently moved to Hendaia and this amazing beach town has inspired me to start doing new things. It has also inspired me to start this blog!

So, it’s almost June, and that makes it 7 more months to finish the year.

Plenty of time to make it, as a whole, a wonderful year.

I have to say, that going through a tough break-up kind of forced me into accomplishing some of my year-end resolutions pretty fast. For example, I managed to run a 5k last March, my first race ever, which was a great experience. And that’s why I am training for my next race: 10K! I also went back to indoor cycling classes, which makes every week much more entertaining.

But there are so many more things I want to do this year… there are so many things I want to do in this life…

For this reason, I have decided to write a bucket list. I actually got this great idea from a blog I discovered yesterday: bucketlistpublications.orgso thank you for the inspiration! 🙂

Here is my bucket list!

  • Run a 10K
  • Visit Bayonne
