What I Was Up To
The first two weeks of August were really intense. Two dear friends of mine came to visit from Germany and stayed with us several days. We got to do lots of fun activities with them and had a great time. We hired a small boat and spent a day exploring little beaches. We did a bit of tourism in the city and we even went hiking and ended up swimming in these little (freezing) lakes. As I said, a great time!
The second two weeks were a bit more quiet. Josep and I went to my hometown for a couple of days and met up with my high school friends. But basically, we just relaxed in our free days, going to the beach, cooking together (those barbecue ribs were to die for) and reading and crafting. I love this corner bookmark I made with book pages.
