Hello hello! One more month has passed and we already have a new theme for Today We Share…“. Do you remember when I told you I was joining some Spanish bloggers initiatives? Well, with last month’S post I even won an award: it was selected by Lorena and Verónica, the ones who organized it, as the best post!
Like the last one, this post isn’t complete because it doesn’t make much sense to publish it in English, but here are my text and photos with which I’m joining once again this blog-hop.
This month theme is “Windows, Balconies, Gardens”
This is a very extensive theme and the possibilities to develop it are many, but the first thing that came to my mind when I saw it was all the cities where I’ve already lived in… That’s why I want to share with you a bit of my life, through all those windows, balconies and gardens of the places where I’ve been these past years since I left Portugal.
Although there are a lot of beautiful windows and balconies in Portugal, they aren’t as common as in the cities I’ve lived in. That’s easy to understand, because with all the hot weather that makes in Portugal it is impossible to have walls covered in windows like in La Corunna, for example.
We lived in La Corunna for four years. Four years of grey skies filled with rain. That’s why there are a lot of windows in there! Nevertheless we were very happy in La Coruña and we made friends for life!
We lived in Berlin only five months. Five wonderful months of playing in the snow, german classes, bike rides, flea markets and pic-nics in the sun. Berlin is also grey most of the year, that’s why there are a lot of windows and balconies there too.
Here, between Mont Jura and the Alps, in a small french village in the border with Switzerland, the mountains are green in Summer and white in Winter. It rains a lot too during all year, it doesn’t matter if it’s January or July, the skies are constantly filled with clouds. Here, people take vitamin D to avoid getting depressed… That’s why we have three balconies in our apartment! They are ugly and old, but the views are great!
We live in Saint Genis Pouilly since last September and we still don’t know when we’re leaving, some day we will, this is not our home. Berlin was the place where we felt like we were at home… In that grey city we left our hearts, but we know someday we’ll be back to rescue them.
