katyakitchen 2013

First of all I must apologize for being so late with my response.

I have been very kindly nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by ¨Mary Ann¨. Her blog Not the Family Business is delightful, so pleasure go and check it out.


Not the Family Business!

It´s a great feeling to know there are people who enjoy my little spot on the web. Thank you very much Mary Ann to have nominated me.

Now I´m supposed to share 7 random things about myself.

  1. I like to sleep with socks on even at summer time.
  2. Music is part of my life, I sleep and wake up listening to it, I also like to spend time making a playlist albums .
  3. I´m addicted to cheese, milk, yoghourt and chocolate. For lonely nights a glass of red wine and chocolate  is a perfect combination 😉
  4. I squeeze lemon juice in almost all my soups, I love the taste of it 😉
  5. I´m very romantic person, I´m  still waiting for my Prince and I always cry during movies.
  6. I like very much aquatic sports like water skiing, windsurf and my next challenge is paddle surf.
  7. When I´m stressed I love to cook a good meal  while listening to music and  enjoying a glass of a very good red wine as (Rioja, Ribera del Duero or Berberana from Spain) . I don´t like to share my kitchen when I´m cooking and I don´t like  help neither.

Adventure in Spain with Lia!

Plaza Mayor

Plaza Mayor

summer a very dear friend came from Brazil to visit me, it was her
first time in Spain and we decided to go on a
 trip  by train just like old times.
Lia used to be my room-mate long time
ago when both of us were trying to have our university degrees at
USC in Bauru/São Paulo. We shared a lot of great times,  good
memories…….. Lia for me is like an
angel she is always around when I most need and last summer she
came once more to save me from the unhappy life I was living. I
just have to say : ¨thank you my dearest  Lia to be my special
and wonderful friend.¨

I don´t need words to
express… I don´t need tears to shed… I don´t need to ask for a
smile… or a hand to hold me… All I need is to be your friend,
forever!     Hard times don´t last forever, but
true friendships do…… I´ll always be there, for anything you
need…. Even if is just someone to listen.

trip started in Madrid, after Barcelona, Gerona, Andorra( border with Spain) and
finished where I used to live before Valencia. It was awesome! As we have
so many pictures I choose a few and today I ´ll start with Madrid.
Madrid the cosmopolitan capital
of Spain
is a vibrant metropolis with much to see and
experience. It is a city of great monuments and very interesting
