OK, you may find the practice of naming a bicycle a bit cringey, which I won’t disagree with, but if nothing else, introducing your bike is a good ice-breaker. Imagine the conversation (pretending you are checking out the bike and not the … More 156 – My holiday with Lilith
The last chapter of my stay in León will recount some additional activities one can enjoy in this beautiful region apart from those covered in my previous posts.

Maybe it would be a good idea to start carrying my tripod around, given I went through the hassle of investing in one. Not that my photographs improve significantly with decent light, anyway. Cantabrian Mountains are the largest massif … More 141 – What We Do In The Shadows
