It’s great to be a grandchild

  • Menéame0

As I had predicted, I’m short on time this week. The last days I had to divide my spare time between schoolwork and my grandparents. They had arrived in Arrasate on Tuesday, so after school Niké and I went to visit them in Hotel Mondragón, where they had booked a room for a few nights. Continue reading

Some new faces

  • Menéame0

An easy stay at home Friday night, so we had to make up for it the next day. Dutch Erasmus Education student Nathalie’s sisters were in town, so what comes before part B? Part-A! Continue reading

New arrivals!

  • Menéame0

My first Belgian visitors are on their way! No friends or parents yet, no, it are my 80-year-old grandparents that have jumped in their car and have driven all the way from Belgium to here. Continue reading

Hitches and hindrances

  • Menéame0

At the end of the last post I was coming back from a weekend in Bilbao. Since then, we did not do much except for the regular daily duties, but there have been some things going on at the university. Continue reading

Bilbao, the alternative way, part 2

This is the continuation of the previous Bilbao-post, enjoy (and get some coffee while you’re at it)! Continue reading

Bilbao: the alternative way, part 1

  • Menéame0

(This is going to be more of a novel than a blog post, just so you know!)

I have the feeling that it’s been a while since the last post. Let me assure you that I have a perfectly valid explanation for my absence these days: I spent the weekend in Bilbao, as I expected in the previous post. A great weekend, being able to discover the city in an alternative way that led me off the beaten tourist track. Continue reading

Rain + boredom => delirium

  • Menéame0

I have a startling confession to make, after all the – often way too long – posts I’ve written here. I don’t know what to write you. And I’m not talking writer’s block, I just don’t know anything that has happened in the past days that is worth telling you about. Only option is to tell you a few things that did happen but are just not so tremendously exciting. So if you’re reading further than this and you get bored out of your mind, don’t come nagging to me, I just gave you a five-sentence long warning. Continue reading

Waves of happiness

  • Menéame0

In my previous post I told you I wanted to enjoy the last bits of post-summer, so that’s what I did in these past days. After a lazy Sunday of recuperating from the weekend, I headed to Donostia again on Monday to spend a day at the beach with Niké and Tiina. Continue reading

Photography and Language (twice)

  • Menéame0

I have an assignment for all of you: write a script and storyboard and create a photographic comic strip which should include at least forty pictures, but do this in dialogue with someone from the Basque Country. I dare you. Because that’s our task for our Digital Journalism class. Continue reading

Maritxu Kajoi: the event, the recovery

  • Menéame0

Gabon/Egun on everybody! Yes, I’m writing you in the evening, but for me it still feels like morning. Main cause: Maritxu Kajoi, one of Arrasate’s biggest yearly festivities, and Corine’s birthday party. I have seen very few hours of daylight this weekend and I’m suffering the consequences right now. Get ready for a long post! Continue reading
