Leaving for Galicia today! On a jet plane.🙂
Ten years ago I wrote my first ever blog post without any idea that this would actually end up being my online home. I’ve been through so much here, have met friends, shared good times, bad times, BORING times😉. And of course this blog led to starting the Sevilla Tapas blog, and a new biz for my new post-cancer life.
I still manage to get a daily blog post up (something I started doing during chemo to give me some focus) even though some days it’s just a cat pic or something incredibly trivial. Other days I write a whole long piece about something important that’s happened. But that’s life! And this is my online scrapbook for day-to-day stuff going on in my life. Anyhow, really glad you’re still here with me after all this time.
It was a great week with Tomoko visiting from Jerez. We got to hang out a lot, talk a lot, and I also introduced her to some Sevilla friends. Best times were hanging out with other chicas (Aldara from We Love Tapas and Eva from I Show U Sevilla), which naturally turned into impromptu brainstorming sessions.
Tomoko is busy starting up her own food & wine tour biz in Jerez, Tomoko Tours, specialising in promoting sherry experiences to Japanese visitors. Together we are working on setting up a network to support and promote each others tours, which will also extend to northern Spain and Portugal. Go us!
Bidding a fond farewell to El Puerto de Santa María from the ferry (actually a catamaran) taking me to Cádiz. This photo was taken on a previous Cádiz Getaway (November 2013). This year the weather and sea conditions were such that the crossings were cancelled and we had to take the bus to Cádiz. NOT the same…
Check out what other Friday Foto Finders are posting over here!
Albéniz premiered Sevilla himself in a piano performance on 24 January 1885 and dedicated it to the wife of Count Morphy. Since it has been transcribed for classical guitar it has become one of the most important works of the classical guitar repertoire.
Many thanks to Sledpress for sending this to me!
