Real Madrid vs. Almighty FC Barcelona

Real Madrid vs. Almighty FC Barcelona

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. Barça rules the place and it requires a lot of quality to disturb Barça’s supremacy. And Madrid payed again a high price; again. This one was special: after 14 years of being a faithful culé, I was attending my very first clasico from the stadium. I couldn’t have expect […]

Segovia

Segovia

Sunday 22th january 2012; my first visit to Segovia. I say first because I’ll definitely go back soon. I already fixed two reasons for this: seeing it covered in snow, and visiting the gastronomic feria at mid-february. It’s a quite small town, 30 minutes south of Madrid by train, that concentrates in its antique neighborhood […]

Apply basic user cases study (for crying out loud)

I’m an advanced user of public transportation here in Madrid; I use everyday Metro+train+bus to go to work, 1 hour in the morning, and another on in the afternoon (or whenever I come back from work). And one thing annoys me pretty much, which affects my user experience, that could be so easily solved walking […]

The influence of facebook on your body and soul

3 years ago, I was investigating for my end of term project around the word ‘water’. This brought me to discover all types of facts around the holy liquid, one that scared me the most is that we’re actually running out of water and will be out of it in not such a long time. […]

Amsterdam (4): the end of the movie

Amsterdam (4): the end of the movie

Friday 6 of january 2012 The end of my trip to Amsterdam. Leaving the quiet neighborhood of Slotermelaan for Tirso de molina. I wish I could stay one more week to enjoy maybe some sunshine and visit those museums I haven’t visited; to have time for another drink or dinner with sara, may, liz, nina, […]

Useless thought

On one hand: a dry pair of jeans I wore for the past 2 days. On the other hand: a pair of wet jeans I just took out of the washing machine. Which one should I wear? The dry one, yes? Wrong! When it’s pouring raining outside, the dry one I’m wearing gets wet, so […]

Jo soc catala…NOT

Jo soc catala...NOT

Few days ago, I came to the conclusion that ‘jo soc catala‘. But it can’t be that easy. For 14 years in spain, I’ve almost always being offered menus in restaurants in english; can’t count how many people in shops launched the conversation with me in english. Half of my blood is English, the other […]

Amsterdam (3)

Amsterdam (3)

Weeks before flying to Amsterdam, I had all my trip planned. But not text-on-paper planned; I’m talking of a all professional planning, a exhaustive investigation represented on a google calendar that would guide me day by day through all the best places to visit, and a custom google map pinning all those places on a […]
