which is pronounced “weefee” here, amazing. this hostel is GORGEOUS - we’ve got the big room at the back with a view of the mountains, big comfy beds and the lushest ensuite! it’ll be so nice to come back to this plushness after every single day up in the rainy, snowy mountains. this week in luarca was absolutely brilliant and hilarious - free wine with every meal, becoming pros at pouring the local cider and an epic last night with delicious ox steak, loud karaoke with the locals and copious ceverza. just the most wonderful place! this next week’s going to be really tough, but we’ll still find a way to have funtimes. viva españa! ♥
so right now i’m in the middle of a “geotraverse” of the northern spanish coast, which i can only assume involves a lot of “ooh, what is this rock, shall we lick it to find out?” business and sketching pretty pictures. maybe some frolicking in the sea if it’s warm enough, which it’s probably not. i can only guess, because i don’t actually have access to the interbutts to give you a blow-by-blow account; i wrote this beforehand! sneakysneaky. i hope i haven’t been eaten by the locals or anything, that would be awkward.
expect piccies of this part of the trip when i return! ♥
it’s hard to be excited about a fieldtrip which starts at 4:30am on monday morning, is costing us all a lot of money and taking away from our study time (we have nine exams straight after we get back) - but who knows, it could be a larf!
catching up with my favourite tellybox shows tonight, sleeping in until midday tomorrow, answering all my remaining messages on various sites and double-checking everything before pulling an all-nighter to make sure i don’t miss the coach! eeek. i’ve put some fun things in the queue so my tumblr won’t dry out while i’m away ♥
i’ll be dragging my suitcase to meet caroline so we can wait up until half four in the morning, then go get the coach with everyone to landaaan! none of us can really be bothered with this trip, but we’ll make it fun somehow ♥
i had better put some new posts in the queue to keep my tumblr fresh while i’m away licking rocks and fist-fighting bears.
just realised that this time next week i'll be snoozing in a hotel bed somewhere in luarca, españa
ohh my giddy god’s pyjamas. for somebody like me, who never gets to travel and hasn’t even been on a plane before, this is a pretty big deal! ♥ now if only i could actually get to sleep in my own bed, since i have to be up in four hours..
easter sunday’s almost over here, but i hope you’re all having/had a lovely day, however you celebrate it (even if you don’t)! i didn’t get any chocolate eggs because the shops ran out pretty fast, but we did have an amazing roast chicken dinner ♥
americanos call them “fannypacks”, which is funny because “fanny” means “vagina” in britain
which actually makes more sense anyway because they go on the front of your body
but anyway, this will come in serious handy for my spanish and french mapping excursions! not only will it be ace for keeping my pens and pencils close-at-hand, i can also hit bears with it if we get attacked by any in the mountains.
our weather’s being brilliantly unpredictable - feeling like summer one day, with garden barbecues, sunbathing and stuffy bedrooms; then belting it down or snowing the next! lots of people are complaining (in true british fashion), but i think it’s fun. springtime is supposed to have crazy see-sawing weather! ♥
