Still holidays ......

I am going to the nord to visit Cantabria, one of the greeenst parts of this burned peninsula, at least they say so. Finally I will have the opportunity to see some decent forests. More photos from Rome and Cantabria later next week.

As I am too lazy to write another post I will continue here. I liked Cantabria very much as it resembles a lot with my country. The hills are as green as England and the sea is sufficiently worm to swim, at least in summer. There are a lot of things to do around, like hiking (Los Picos de Europa), visiting old villages (Santillana del Mar, Ruiloba, etc), caves (El Soplao) or ancient monasteries and churches (Santa Maria de Lebena, Santo Toribio de Liebana, etc). The beaches are not so crowded and in some there are good conditions to practice windsurf. Due to its colder climate Cantabria is a good destination for the hot summer months especially when trying to escape from the rest of Iberian peninsula.

And now some pictures:

The eternal city

Since there is not much to do here and the department is almost empty I will take some free days and go to visit a friend of mine from Rome. After 10 years I will finally see again the eternal city and its ancient treasures. Stay tuned for the photos at my return.
A preview of the first two days...and now back to the tourist schedule.

Campamento Jara

Last week end I went to a camp site in Guadalajara where Cris is monitor. Imagine 80 kids together in relatively small area to which you have to give 4 meals a day. At the end was not so bad as I didn't have anybody under my direct supervision. The most I liked the mounting of the tyrolean traverse although I almost broke my legs testing it.
Another good point was the opportunity to meet almost all CrisÂș friends at once so I got rid of this task from my list.

P.S. If you want to see what is this Jara about go here
