Barcelona, a photo a day



Yes, you guessed it, this is my post 1500! Yeah! Can’t believe it myself! So, to celebrate, I chose to post about the silliest photo of myself I could find, taken in our swimming pool in Larnaka, Cyprus, a few months before we moved here (via India, don’t ask) and I started this.
1500 posts. Seems quite a milestone. I learned an awful lot about photography, I believe I got much better at it… This is for you to decide, of course.
I made quite a lot of friends through this, you know who you are.
I had to slow down recently, as we have an absolutely awful internet connection, and no foreseeable way to improving it. What took a couple of minutes before, takes now an hour or longer, and unfortunately, days only have 24 hours. I am happy when I manage to post 3 or 4 times a week. I can only post when the b….y internet is working!
Also, we will most likely move abroad soon. Which will mark the end of this blog, and the start of a new adventure. Will tell you more when I know more. Meanwhile, enjoy my photos!

Marie de Montpellier, when BDP meets MDP

It is always a very great pleasure to meet a fellow blogger! Of course, we couldn’t fail meeting lovely Marie, from Montpellier Daily Photo! Thank you Marie for telling us we look so much younger than we are! We’ll be back! After all, we’re just 320 km away, 200 miles.

Arabesque and Pepperoni!

We were very very happy to welcome in our city and in our home fellow bloggers Arabesque and Pepperoni, all the way from Mabuhay Manilla last night! We had a very lovely evening together!

We’ll be going to France for a week today, so this blog will be on holidays. See you all on the 28th.


Let’s celebrate!

Let’s celebrate this 800th post with some sweet music!

A cat’s tale

A short update about Rio, the abandoned cat we adopted at the end of October. He is now 8 1/2 months old, and weighs just over 4 kg. But he still hasn’t learned how to clean his nose properly after eating!
Jabs are done, and he will be neutered on April 7th, as we promised by signing the adoption contract in October. He is a very sweet cat, full of life, and he did not so far break anything important! And he is EXTREMELY talkative!!!!!
And his is slowly becoming a blogging star! Check out his blog here!

Rio de Julio

This is our cat Rio and his favorite mouse! This little bandit is almost 7 months old. To follow his adventures, from abandoned kitty to blogging stardom, please click  here to see his own blog!

Theme day: best of 2010

Today’s theme day is the best photo of last year, 2010. This is what I think is one of the best photo I took last year, on December 30th (2 days ago), when we finally met our first ever fellow bloggers and ‘old friends’, Cezar and Leia from Luxembourg Daily Photoblog. They are spending the new year festivities in Barcelona and Andorra. Lovely to meet them!
From left to right, Rob, Mandy, Leia, Cezar…

…and Rio the cat!

And happy new year to everybody!
