147 – The C-word

Disclaimer 1: If you are here just to read about the hike, scroll down.  Disclaimer 2: Don’t get your hopes too high. This is not a recount of any same sex sexual experience, that may or may not have happened. The title is not meant literally. Besides, I only ever use that word when talking … More 147 – The C-word

146 – Who Cares?

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. There will be no incendiary content this time. Probably. Unless some sudden change of heart occurs later in the writing process. Not that there is a shortage … More 146 – Who Cares?

145 – Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

In this slightly late guide to eastern León, we have already covered some roadtrips (here and here),  some easy hikes (and here) and some cycling. Now it’s time to talk about some proper hiking.

137 – Barcelona Chapter 3 – Caldes de Montbui

For those of you who follow this blog regularly and are interested in the development of my mysterious neighbour’s well-being: (s)he is now risking her/his life should I ever discover her/his identity. The latest addition to the building’s soundtrack is someone (I suspect the same person) attempting to play a trumpet. So we have been … More 137 – Barcelona Chapter 3 – Caldes de Montbui

128 – Non Più Andrai, Farfallone Amoroso, Notte e Giorno d’Intorno Girando…

My dear readers, I hereby present a few photos from what is likely to be my last hike for a veeeery long time. Hence the title of this entry. You can google it and maybe even work out the subtle irony. Alternatively, should you wish to broaden your cultural horizons with least possible effort, click … More 128 – Non Più Andrai, Farfallone Amoroso, Notte e Giorno d’Intorno Girando…
