Mañana Mentality

I´m back on the island of Ibiza (in a different city, but the same island from where I last posted), and this computer also will not read my memory card.


Because I seriously have many, many photos I wish to share.

Hopefully I´ll have a chance when we get back to Malaga tomorrow night.  If not, the day after for sure.  Or definitely the day after that.  Mañana, mañana, mañana.

I am in Spain, after all.

I´m doing my best to adopt to their culture.

Which, as far as I can tell so far, basically means working all morning, taking a 2-3 hour siesta involving lots of food and alcoholic beverages in the afternoon, working a bit more, and then eating and drinking again.  And since I´m unemployed in this country, we´re basically cutting out the superfluous “working” part and pretty much sticking to the eating and drinking.

The only thing making me not feel like a complete blimp is the fact that we just returned from 3 days on the island of Formentera, around which our only (chosen) way of transport was bicycle.  It was relatively flat, for the most part, except for that day we decided to ride up a frickin´mountain (at least by Formenteran — and Nebraskan — standards) to see a lighthouse.

I´d like to say it was worth it.

And I will tell you, it was.

So, so worth it.

The pictures will be forthcoming.

The only down-side is that my thighs seem to be en fuego.

That´s on fire.


Anyway, I´d love to catch you up more, but the lack of photo sharing ability is kind of getting on my nerves, and my last night on Ibiza is waiting outside this cafe, so I will have to say adios for now.  It´s 9:30 p.m., which means it´s time for dinner.

My favorite part of the day.

Aside from… you know… breakfast, lunch, and siesta.

Life is rough, my friends.

Very, very rough.

I’m so jealous! I just got back from Europe and I’m already planning my next trip back! Have a blast! :)


Apple, lime, spring, kelly, olive, forest….All the shades of green I am right now. I’m not usually into traveling, but life sounds so warm and relaxing there! Glad you’ve cut the superfluous junk! Can’t wait to see photos! Enjoy, enjoy.


Right now I’m dealing with the end of the school year grind, so I’m closing my eyes for a minute and pretending I’m right there with you in happy eat, drink, siesta land. Can’t wait for pics!


Oh yeah….thighs on FIRE!

Sorry. Hopped up on sugar this morning (and it’s NOT from coffee).

Don't be shy... tell me what you think!
