At Moet & Chandon in Champagne, France

I’ve been a champagne lover, at some times an eager champagne drinker some other times not so much. A few weeks back I happened to visit the Moet & Chandon home in Reims, Champagne. Learning how it is all produced, checking out the spaces where each process takes place, and enjoying a tasteful tasting as well. It is cold down there, but it is the required temperature. It is huge, I can’t quite remember the number of kilometers that all the halls down there amount to (must have been the tasting that made me forget the facts), but it is huge, and lovely.

The Spice Bazaar and Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey

Walking inside and getting to the bazaar worlds in Istanbul is an experience that sticks to your mind, life, in time. The colors, the people, the crowds, the sounds, the textures, the flavors, the screams, the chanting, the little halls, a labyrinth inspired place…so many beautiful pieces, large, small, useful, and not, but beautifully done and inviting. Each little object, a story to tell, each corner around, there is more and more to check out.

When you are happy you can’t hide it

Sometimes you move from a place to another and as time goes by you learn to be true to yourself and to be happy on your own terms. A life full of color, a life full of love, a life without boundaries and to travel the world.

An emotion, an excitement, a life to live

It is due to our greatest ability to feel, to let ourselves be surprised and be wondered by life that we learn to live. It is then when you feel alive, it is then when it all makes sense. Being true to yourself, to your dreams, to your happiness, so it all flows, just like nature. It is good to laugh, uncontrollably if possible, no matter the surroundings, no matter if you remember why, but it is important to do it. Beautiful days are never to be taken for granted, being grateful for each moment alive is the way to go 🙂

Day at the beach….in Sunny Miami

Some days are meant to be spent on the beach, some days if not all…ideally. The beach, the sound of the water, the wind, the sun rays hitting your senses. You are relaxed, you are inviting, it’s a perfect environment, for your eyes, your heart, your soul, and your mind. It is peaceful or it is fun, it is anything you want it to be, and more.

It’s hard to be me….Red Hallway

It happens that sometimes you run into the hallway of your emotions. The color of your emotions and you feel like you belong, at least for a moment, or two. Red…the passion, love, the art of relationships, with yourself, with other people. Frustration, anger, fear, you are faced to face them, you have to walk through such hallways if you want to get somewhere. There are doors, doors you need to open, enter, discover, and conquer, and move on. “It’s hard to be me” the t-shirt on me, it’s hard but it’s ok, I have to acknowledge it and keep on walking. Never stop, and be Happy. That’s it.

This photograph was taken at a hotel I stayed in Madrid a few weeks back. The hotel is called Puerta America, each one of its floors was designed by a different architect. Some of the floors are quite cool.

A place to dream…Segovia, Spain

Some places you visit are to dream or like taken out of a dream, like in the case of Segovia, Spain. The silence of its streets, the colors, the balconies, the doors, the castle, and lamps, the flowers, trees, main square and its church. The souvenirs, the words, the details on the walls…it is certainly a place not to miss out. Only good vibes, great energy and life is what I gathered from this little beautiful town of Spain.
