It’s been a long time since I last posted something on my blog. It’s been kind of difficult for me to get stuff done lately (lately being the last 4 months). Since we moved (yes we moved to new apartment!) I feel I haven’t been able to get into my life rhythm again.
Everything is taking me forever to get done, even little things like small house chores such as watering the plants or refiling a water jar.
That has become a problem. It’s getting to me emotionally and mentally. I know I have all this things I have and want to do, but seeing myself not able to get to them makes me feel bad and overwhelmed. So I end up curled up with a blanket on the couch or the bed during all my spare time not getting any closer to even starting to do all of these things. It a vicious cycle now, I think.

I just can’t seem to concentrate on doing anything. Even things I like and enjoy such as blogging, editing my YouTube videos, streaming or even playing video games. And there are SO many things I want to do. Maybe that’s even part of the problem. Could I be putting too much pressure on myself?
This morning I thought the important thing is to set a schedule. Maybe that’ll help? At least until I’m able to jump into the rhythm again. The things is, that to aby by a schedule you need to be discipline and I have to admit that self discipline is a knack I extremely lack of.
I hope this blog post is the first small step that helps me get back on track.
It’s been a while since we went on a roadtrip.
Last weekend we went aways for a day and visited beautiful places that gave me the opportnity to practice nature and landscape photography. I took my time to snap each photo and then processed them using Lightroom.
I don’t know why, but every time we go on a roadtrip, the experience makes me feel more at home. The planning, getting the car, listeting to loud music while admiring the road sceneries, it feels right.
I also managed to do a short video for my new YouTube Channel. (Which I’m really excited about!)
I hope you feel at home too and have a beautiful week.
Ok yes I know. I missed one day. But that’s good because the only reason I missed it was because it was a very good and when we arrived home at night I was so tired and sleepy I dind’t got to sit and post on the blog.
One of the things I did during the day was a photo stream on my Twtich Channel: Mafirette.
I worked photos from our trip to Vall de Nùria on Lighroom while chatting to people and explaning what I was doing! I’ve resumed streaming this week because I so excited about one of my birthday presents: a Ninendo 3DS XL with a capture card!!! I wanted one of those for a long time. So I got enthused with streaming again. Then at night, we went to a delicious restaurant to have dinner with my parents and there was wine (hence the not bloggin yesterday xD)
Here’s a gallery with the phtoso I developed yesterday! Hope you like them!
I’m bloggin early today because we are going to see the new Spiderman movie! So I thougth I’m not going to have time to post tonight.
Tomorrow is the last day of my challenge!
Cámara de Lobos, Madeira – Portugal
Almost lost in the middle of the ocean, Madeira is the place where I imagine reitiring to when I’m all wrinkled and just want to spend the days looking at the sea. In my memory, this beautiful island lives like a painting: still, mesmerizing…captivating.
Tranquility will be a perfect word to describe Madeira. Its such a peaceful island I can’t imagine the words “stress” being spoke there. One of my favorite places there is a small town called Cámara de Lobos, the home of “poncha” a typical drink form Madeira and the dream of painters.
we went there two times during the week we stayed in Madeira. BTW, I had the most delicious food ever in this small piece of land. Seriously I can’t even begin to explain how good it was… (my mouht is watering right now)!!
I really hope mi photos get to express (even a little bit) the beauty of it! And if you ever decide to visit Madeira, I guarantee you’ll have a wonderful time.

I’ve always loved nature. Most of my childhood memories are set in a garden, the beach or a mountain. When my brother and I were very young, we used to have camping days in our garden, play between the leaves and grass until 2 am. and I remember spending most of my summers in the beach.
Maybe that is why I feel so peaceful and relaxed when I’m in contact with nature.
We took a little roadtrip and crossed the border with France to the Vallee D’Eyne.
I really needed a day like this. Just to get away and relax between nature.
What do you do when you need to get away?
BTW, new look for the blog and an update for my About Page 🙂
Last weekend, after a while, I finally got the opportunity to go on another little trip. Hubby and I were invited to a calçotada. It’s a traditional gastronomic party in Catalunya. It envolves charcoal, a fire, a delicious sauce, bread, butifarras, drinks and, of course, calçots.
Of course it took a while for everything to be ready and we went for a walk. We were right outside Barcelona at Castelterçol. A beautiful small town, with stone streets, a church and a fresh fruit and vegetables market at the square. Sorrounded by nothing but miles of nature landscapes it was a perfect saturday.
Here are some of the photos I took (it was very difficult to narrow it down).
But the road didn’t end there. We continued on Sunday. We went to this towns with a population of 20 people. And the sights were amazing.
I just love this short trips. They are so relaxing and just simply fun.
