If you follow me on instagram, you might have caught on that I was in Spain this last weekend for a short getaway to visit my boyfriend. It was a much needed escape from some of the stresses I’ve been dealing with at work lately. Thankfully, the beach, Playa San Juan, is only but a stone’s throw away from D’s house, and escape, we did.
As you can imagine, when you live in a grey and cloudy climate, it is not every day you get to experience a colorful sunset. In Spain, I think they get to experience this so often, they take it for granted. There, beautiful sunsets on the beach are the norm. For me, it took me aback. I was so impressed with the pink and purple hues that suffused the Alicante skyline, that I couldn’t stop taking photos. I allowed the calming waves to be the only noises made, at least where I was concerned.
Even though it’s technically still Winter, Spain has been very warm. There was a breeze, but it was actually the perfect temperature. I still used my scarf blanket to bury myself in, but this was a pure luxury, and not a necessity.
Once again, I am obsessed with the California shoe brand, Blowfish. In my previous post, I had some adorable ankle boots from there, but I did not bring them along with me to Spain, as I had hoped for warmer, dryer weather. These ballet flats were perfect for the occasion – they are light and very cute. I, however, made the rookie mistake of breaking them in the evening before I went on a 14km hike (more on that later). Oops, but at least they are broken in now!
