The Lockdown Diaries - Day 37 #lockdowndiaries Today's tale of the great outdoors comes straight from one of our favorite countries in the world: Nepal. - How much is left to finish today's trekking? - I asked the guide after several hours of climbing steps up the mountain, breathless. - Just twenty minutes, half an hour. - He answered. Two hours later, exhausted, I finally arrived at our eco-community lodge, the first of several where we would sleep while undertaking the Mohare Hill (Mohare Danda) trek, at the Annapurnas' footsteps. For the extra hour and a half, mixed thoughts crossed my mind: How could I lie to myself? Wasn't he able to see that I was on the verge of fainting? I miss that trip so much. After the first day of adjustment to what was to come, things were only upwards and onwards on the following ones - with their ups and downs that I'll tell you about another day. It was one of the biggest challenges I have faced so far. I kid you not, I was this close to abandon the trek that day. The funniest thing is to think that the uncertainty of not knowing when that endless day would end almost drives me crazy. Little did I know that three years later the uncertainty would be when we would be able to leave the house after a month and a half locked up, knowing that at least another one is ahead of us. How right is he who said that life puts us in our place. #NepalTales #Annapurnas #MohareTrek #MohareDanda

The Lockdown Diaries - Day 36 #lockdowndiaries Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Maxwell Maltz seems to be the father of the '21 days to form a habit idea 'as published in a 1960 self-help book called' Psycho-Cybernetics, A New Way to Get More Living Out of Life '. The truth is that after 36 days locked up, the habit of confinement has taken over us. The idea of going outside crosses our minds a little less every day, and we have even created new routines in our lives adjusted to this new reality. I wonder if this has anything to do with the confinement that inmates experience in jail. And although I doubt that, it is increasingly clear that this period of our lives will be remembered as our particular period in prison, freedom deprived. #quarantinethoughts #SpainLockdown #prison #freedom
This Cuba travel guide uncovers 8 unmissable stops on a Cuba road trip from the West part of the country to the East coast, as well as many other tips to make the most out of your trip. In this guide, we’ll discuss some of the best places to visit in a Cuba road trip adventure, how you can get here, things you can do and see plus some extra recommendations on when to come and how to make the most of your trip. Another cool thing to do is to visit some of the salsa clubs like Tropicana, which offer some of the best nights out in Cuba, and are renowned as some of the best salsa venues in the world. If beach-time is on your list, then head to nearby Santa María del Mar which is barely a 30 minutes drive east of Havana.
This city guide will walk you through the best places to visit in Athens, when to visit, how to get there, where to sleep, how to get around, and where to eat. If you happen to be spending a couple of days in Athens, then why not head out of the city and explore Lake Vouliagmeni, a popular day trip option from the city. Undoubtedly one of the most significant historic sites in Greece and located around 70 kilometers to the south of Athens at Cape Sounion, the Doric Temple of Poseidon, built around 444-440 BC in honor of Poseidon, the Greek God of the Sea is worth a visit. But, what many visitors to Greece don’t realize is that you don’t have to go island-hopping to experience and enjoy the turquoise waters that Greece is so famous for.
The Lockdown Diaries - Day 34 #lockdowndiaries Every time I get asked which destinations I'd love to go back and which ones I'd absolutely avoid in the future, my answer is usually along the lines of 'all places in the world have something, so anywhere and everywhere'. I know, it's ridiculous. The answer couldn't be vaguer. I guess I do not want to hurt anyone, but the truth is that there are some places I would never go back to. This morning I saw it crystal clear. One of them is Chernobyl. I was invited there three years ago and I do not regret visiting, but after having done so, I can't help it to hate myself for putting my own life at risk - just a tiny bit - and especially the lives of those who work there day in and day out for the sake of dark tourism. From the perimeter security guards to the canteen cooks and guides who day after day bring the Geiger counter to places where it shouldn't be for the joys of tourists (these eyes saw it marking 273 cm away from the infamous yellow Ferris wheel of Pryp'yat '), it's plain stupid. And dangerous. But why do I bring this issue up today? Bear with me just a bit more, please. The media in Spain has been exclusively talking about the C * virus since the countrywide status alert was established five weeks ago. Thus television went from being trash to being a C*virus trash pretty much overnight. And it was filled with so-called experts discussing 'groundbreaking' stuff that had already done the rounds in Asia a couple of months ago. Almost the same old sh*t on TV we were used to. Until this week, when other disasters began to unsettle the media - of course, catastrophes sell! - like the wildfires in the vicinity of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, an already dated problem that started on April 4. As a result, it has been a long time since we limited our consumption of news to global, online and on-demand stuff for 5 minutes. And, on the other hand, questions are changing. Would you like to go back to how you were before? Well, yes and no. As a society, we could as well start changing some things. Ah, the C*virus joys and silver linings. #Spainlockdown #televisionrulesthenation #inquarantine #5weeks
Our 6 easy tips for starting a budget vegetable garden will get you growing your own quickly, easily and with the minimal outlay or your time, effort, and importantly money.

No need to take garden waste to the household recycling centers anymore, and use fuel to get there, just put it into your composter and you’ll be improving the quality of your vegetable growing for future years too. It’s easy to get started making your own compost – tea bags, vegetable peelings, cardboard, egg boxes, and fallen leaves can all go into your composter.
The Lockdown Diaries - Day 33 #lockdowndiaries Our last proper hike in nature - in mid-February - keeps coming to my mind lately. It took place the same day as our first-ever picnic. Jose made a delicious and slightly undercooked potato omelet, we bought some fresh bread and added some cured loin, scallops and a can of foie that the company I worked for had sent me as part of the Christmas basket. What a feast we had! The fact is that, as sometimes happens to us, we stopped too many times on the way to take photos and aware the night was coming, we decided to call a taxi before finishing it when we were about three-quarters of the way. How little did we know back then that only a couple of months later, we wish we could walk that remaining quarter of the way madly. Even if it was pitch black. I have just walked through our apartment from end to end over three hundred times to walk 6000 steps and break the starvation that has been trapping me for more than a month. We had it all. #memories #throwbackthursday #talesofquarantine #6000steps
The Lockdown Diaries - Day 32 #lockdowndiaries While France instills fear in its population - and in neighboring countries - with rumors of an extension of almost half a year of the containment measures, South Korea continues to report reinfections everywhere, there are numerous infections that cast doubt on the effectiveness from the heat to kill this virus in Africa, and the USA remains the world leader in infections; Our country (Spain) gives a pass by default to all schoolchildren this school year. The world is crazy right now. Or has it been too many days since I left home? #crazyworld #COVIDmadness #notToday #quarantine
