September 2014

September was all about Indonesia, Indonesia and more Indonesia (although we only stayed half of the month there).


Best movie in the first flight


Rupiah! All of those notes were the equivalent to £200


After approximately 30 hours, 3 flights (London – Dubai – Jakarta – Bali) we finally arrived to Nusa Lembongan.


After some adventures we managed to get to our first Indonesian home: a bungalow with amazing views in the south of the island

The Devil’s tears


I was unsure about Bali (too touristic) but I felt in love with the hindu culture and their rituals


We explored almost all the island in a couple of days, enjoyed the first & best snorkeling of our lifes and even rented a kayak to sail through the mangrove forest


(Wow!)


(Wow x2!)


More offerings.


5.00am sunrise


We sailed from Nusa Lembongan to Padang Bai where we stayed only for one day. We visited all the beaches and temples of the village and eated plenty of nasi and mie goreng.


The stairs to get to our hostel were long and steep but the views were great.


After our quick stop in Padang Bai we sailed to Senggigi (in Lombok) where we finally found a calm sea.


Rice snack!


Amazing sunset in the beach.


Warungs as a way of life. I was lucky enough to don’t order anything tofu related in this place…


Last temple of the trip: Pura Batu Bolong.


After spending one night in Senggigi we took a big boat and we sailed during four days through the Flores sea.


… where we saw the most amazing sunrises, sunsets and stars (even the milky way!)


It was quite an experience to live and sleep in the deck of a boat (specially during a stormy night) during four days.


We climbed big mountains in tiny islands (this was Gili Laba)


… and we saw desert islands


… and we walked in a pink beach


… and we saw a man asleep in the sea


My body and (specially) hair really missed a shower.


And at the end of our sail trip we saw Komodo dragons in their habitat!


After four days we finally arrived to Labuan Bajo.


… where we enjoyed the most delicious dinner in a street food market.


Good morning Labuan Bajo!


Bye bye Bali!


After sailing to the East it was time to take three flight to go to the West.
Although in this picture this kid seems very quiet he was shouting and kicking my seat during all the flights.


Java cities are really huge, I think this is Bandung.


A typical house of Medan where our driver invited us to indonesian doughnuts and coffee while rain was pouring outside like I’ve never seen before.


And finally after one complete day traveling we arrived to the jungle. This is the view from our small bungalow, it was so so sooooo amazing (except for the mosquitoes).


Jungle breakfast!


The bat cave.


Little companion in our jungle house.


We trek during one day through the jungle where we saw orangutans (!!!!), gibbons, macaques, lizards and several strange animals.


We spent the night in the middle of the jungle and had a delicious dinner.


Good morning! The sound at night in the jungle was… quite scary in a nice way.


(Wow!)


Quick morning shower in the river and then back to the village.


We took a “”bus”” to Medan where our backpacks travelled with chickens tied up to the van.


I’ve to say that Medan was quite horrible, at least what we were able to see in a few hours. The traffic is absolutely awful and it’s quite hard to move through downtown. I also got pretty sick during the night so that didn’t help at all.


Bye Bye Medan, bye bye Indonesia, we’ll be back soon!


Non related to Indonesia, Walden is still alive and growing each day!

August 2014

Uops, this time I’m quite late posting this…!


But anyway… Hi!


During August I started drawing extinct animals for my first & new street art project


And besides the ‘Extinction project’ I started making & pasting some handmade ‘Stop the cull’ stickers around East/Central London


Related to me holding a pen half a year ago I made some illustrations for a friend’s book and finally during summer the book was published. Honestly I’ve to say the result was great! (you can take a look or buy it here)

We kept exploring the incredible beautiful Epping forest


… and we saw Frank Fairfield!


Summer flowers


Hi gorgeous #6435345


Finally our chilli pepper plant surprised us!


It’s nice to wait for a doctor’s appointment observing these funny fishes


The near future changed too fast for my liking during august… but this sign made me feel better


My first visit to the Kew gardens after almost one year and a half really wanting to go also helped a lot


Barefoot walk in a sunny day!


I’ve to say Kew gardens was better than expected (and I expected a lot!)

June & July 2014


Hi!


London Fields sunset


I always forgot how nice is Shoreditch park during the summer


specially for enjoying a picnic with Tito!

As we hadn’t took any day off since Easter we decided to spent a long weekend at my hometown


Zaragoza from above


It was great to see my family and enjoy things that years ago were so common and now are so distant


I can’t count how many hours I’ve spent in my life looking at these views…


July arrived = Pimm’s season was back!


Taking a walk outside my office


We went to a permaculture festival that made us wish even more to live in the countryside


And in our way to the festival we saw this in Camden. Best joke ever


I gave linoleum a second chance and I was quite surprised & pleased with the result


It was a success, yaaaay!
By the way you can buy that print or more nice handmade things here


So true


Dirty after work selfie


No dogs = No fun


During July I discovered my new favourite place in London: Epping forest.
It’s incredible that only 30″ away from central London you can find such a wild and amazing place.


And I went crazy picking blackberries, cherries and plumps


July gave me the possibility to enjoy a concert of my biggest musical obsession of the year, The Two man gentleman band, in a tiny pub. They were a-m-a-z-i-n-g!


Last summer was too crazy with all the visits we had but this summer is being more relaxed.
Only my cousin and his girlfriend had come to visit us this summer, and we had a lot of fun doing East-London-tourist-things


As a mental scape route from my day job I decided to focus more on my Etsy shop


and I started working on a new project that is coming to life this month.
More to come in August!

May 2014

Oh May, you run away so fast…!


We made a day trip to Cambridge to explore the city. It was quite cloudy but the botanical garden was beautiful. And yes, I’ve an obsession with botanical gardens.


Hen party!


We celebrated our first year living in London with friends and craft beer

Continue reading


and the sky cheered with us (x2)


Beautiful and crazy Hoxton


We dress up for a 1920s clandestine dance party. The music, cocktails and atmosphere was amazing! Wish I could dress like that every single day


My favourite London walk


Picnic days are back!


Classic lunch break


So true.


It’s difficult for me to find the time to draw but I’m trying to do it more often


Hi gorgeous!


Don’t forget.
