Lately, I haven’t been posting many personal pictures on my blog. It’s mostly been dailydress pictures and makeup or nail polish swatches.
It’s weird because I started this blog as a diary of my personal life, but as I grew older, I realized I wanted less people knowing about the going on’s in my life and combine that with the fact that I found a new passion in fashion and makeup, I guess my blog content just kind of evolved naturally.
Sometimes though, I do miss sharing snippets of my life with everyone, so for the first time in forever, here are pictures of my family and I on our holiday to Zaragoza, Spain.
The main reason we were in Spain was because Bryan had a race there and well, nowadays, with all our (my family and I) schedules as busy as they are, we try and fit our holidays around Bryan’s races so that we kill two birds with one stone.
Bryan, Matteo and another Birel driver watching a practice/qualifying session.
Hi everyone! :)
Anddddd, that’s all the pictures I took at the track. Hahaha! Bryan didn’t have a very good race that weekend so I didn’t bother taking any pictures. :p
These pictures are of the outside of the Catedral de Basilica in the Plaza del Pilar.
The Catedral de Basilica is the oldest church in the whole of Europe and if you think the outside is beautiful, the inside just takes your breath away.
I wish I could have taken pictures of the inside but unfortunately, photography is not allowed inside.
My favourite picture is the last one where you can see the moon directly behind the tower because it was late evening by then but the sun was still out because summer was just ending so their days were still very long.
Man, even until now, whenever I look at these pictures, I feel so, awestruck because I mean, look at them! Have you ever seen something so amazing?!??
My brother and I look so much like our parents in this picture.
In the Plaza del Pilar.
I love Spanish architecture.
Outside a castle which I have forgotten the name of. Hahaha!
Funny story, we went to the castle and there were all these bouquets of flowers there so my dad asked me to ask one of the guards what was going on. So I asked her what was going on in Spanish and she started talking really fast and I didn’t really understand her so I only caught the gist of what she was saying and assumed that she said someone famous was visiting the castle.
It was only when we walked into the castle that we figured out that someone famous WAS visiting the castle, only, he was dead.
So while we were in Spain, we actually attended a state funeral of a very well-liked (or it seemed like he was well-liked) politician.
Unfortunately, because of the funeral, we didn’t get to see the whole castle, we only got to see a very little bit of it, but well, I guess it was better than nothing and it gives us a reason to go back! :D
In a nutshell, I loved Spain and I definitely want to go back. The people are nice, the food is good, the shopping is even better (Zara is 30-40% cheaper there!) and it is just such a beautiful place.
Wow, I haven’t blogged about something like this for so long it feels kind of weird and unnatural and I feel like this blog post just hasn’t done justice to Spain because I really haven’t managed to capture the incredibly rich essence of Spain. So forgive me if this post is a bit dry, I’m feeling a bit awkward writing this and hopefully, the post about England will be a little less, boring. Hahahaha!
Nevertheless, I hope you guys have enjoyed the pictures, these are some of my favourite pictures ever of my family and I. <3
