Lovelies’s Travel Diary

Tuesday, 29 Jul 2003

Location: UK

MapHola a todos!! Aqui esta Sonia al teclado despues de una eternidad!! Durante este tiempo han pasado muchas cosas, entre ellas mi viaje a Barcelona, aunque ya habreis visto las fotos! Cuando volvi de Barcelona el que se marcho fue Dale, que emprendio su viaje por Grecia, Turquia y Oriente Medio. Parece que se lo esta pasando en grande! Despues de eso hemos tenido algunas visitas: primero llego Leo, de origen australiano y residente en Berlin, que conquisto a los edimburgueses vendiendo sus cuadros en la Royal Mile; despues llego Max Passerotto, ex-residente en Londres, pues en estos momentos ya esta en su Italia natal! Max tambien conquisto la ciudad, pero con su monopatin!! Ya lo vereis! Y en estos momentos estan aqui de visita Rafa, el padre de Ainhoa, y Asun! Asi que no ha estado mal el mesecito!
Yo por mi parte he trabajado mucho y me he dedicado a leer ahora que tengo tiempo... Sigo yendo al cine, al Cameo, y aunque ya no os comente las peliculas tan asiduamente, no puedo evitar recomendaros "Together", una pelicula sueca sobre una comuna en los años 70! El vestuario es ideal! Esta semana ire a ver "Whale Rider", neozelandesa, que dicen que esta muy bien... Ya os contare!
Hace un par de semanas pase unos dias en la zona de Aberdeen, al noreste de Escocia. La verdad es que no vi mucho la ciudad, porque la niebla no te dejaba ver mas alla de tus pies, asi que me dirigi un poco mas hacia el sur hasta Stonehaven, un pueblo a pocas millas del cual se encuentra Dunnottar Castle, uno de los mas espectaculares de Escocia. Hoy mismo pongo las fotos!
Bueno, chicos, que muchos recuerdos a todos y espero no colgarme tanto para poner el proximo update! Besos!!
Y un beso especial a Nat, Belinda y Anthea que se han ido de Edimburgo buscando el sol de Brighton!


ENGLISH VERSION
Hi everybody!! Here it's Sonia after a long long time!! Well, in this time many things have happened... I went to Barcelona, I came back, Dale left Edinburgh and went travelling around Europe, Turkey and the Middle East,... We had some visits as well: Leo, from Australia, who lives in Berlin, stayed with us for few days; and then Max, who doesn't live anymore in London (!!), came to say bye with his scooter before leaving the country. And the most recent one: Ainhoa's dad and Asun, but she will tell you about!
People leaving, people coming... Always like that!! From here I want to send a big kiss to Natalie, Belinda and Anthea, three lovely aussies who also left Edinburgh looking for some sun in the south of England! Good luck lovelies! I'll see you soon!
And me, well... I keep working and I keep spending my free time between my books and cinemas! You have to see "Together", a swedish movie about a comune in the 70's! The wearing apparel has no price! Apart from that, we had some pleasure trips as well... even if sometimes thinking about new places to go seems a hard job when you lack money or time!! South Queensferry and Crammond are a classic by now, but we always learn a bit more about them... Now Ainhoa, Leo, Max and Sonia know that if there's a warning saying that the ferry is closed, probably the ferry will be closed and we won't cross the 2 metres wide puddle that separates the side of Crammond where you arrive to if walking the 5 mile long Dalmeny path, which goes from South Queensferry, from the opposite side of Crammond where you take the bus back to Edinburgh!! A nice a relaxing walk became a marathon!!
I also visited Aberdeen and around for acouple of days... It was nice though the weather was so foggy I just could see my feet and sometimes the person walking in front of me! I decided then that I deserved a relax treatment and I allowed myself to enjoy the wonderful word of the scottish B&B!! Someone cooking and serving breakfast for me!!! So so good!! The last day didn't rain and I could see Dunnottar Castle, in Stonehaven, a small fishing village south Aberdeen. It is the most impressive castle I've seen!
Time to go now!! I am not promising, but I'll try to update the page a bit more often! Besos to everybody!
