Wynwood Art District- Urban art in Miami

Hello everybody, happy new year! After a long break from blogging we are back. We’ve barely had any free time in our schedule these past few months since Darys has been crazy busy at work, and I was studying for a couple of exams towards getting my US architectural license. Everybody in the arch profession knows how these exams can be quite the grueling process. But guess what? PASS for both of them, so 4 down, only 3 more exams to go! I actually received the news for one of them via e-mail on Christmas day, and let me tell you, it was the best Christmas present a girl could get! We may have to take another quick break once the next test dates start approaching so we ask for a little bit of your patience while we get those monsters out of the way!

Since we spent Christmas and new year’s at Miami, we though it would be a good idea to share with everyone from out of town some images of our visit to the Wynwood Arts District. It’s amazing to see how much the city has evolved over the last couple of years. Definitely urban art at its finest. We just couldn’t get enough of the place!

Must visit places: Wynwood walls, Wynwood Kitchen and bar, Wood tavern, The Butcher Shop, Panther Coffee

Waking up in Cadiz, Spain

With a waterfront that takes you back to a city in the caribbean, Cadiz is one of the most beautiful places to visit in southern Spain, although it is not as well known to foreigners as other spanish staple cities such as Barcelona, Seville or Madrid. We are lucky enough to enjoy family and friends, and wake up to this view every time we visit. We’ll be sharing with you more interesting things about this great city in upcoming posts.


Con un frente marino que recuerda una ciudad caribeña, Cádiz es uno de los lugares con más encanto para visitar en el sur de España, aunque no es tan conocido como otras ciudades ‘clave’ para visitantes extranjeros como Barcelona, Sevilla o Madrid. Tenemos mucha suerte de poder disfrutar de nuestros familiares y amigos y poder despertar con esta vista cada vez que visitamos. Seguiremos compartiendo con ustedes mucho más sobre esta ciudad milenaria en próximos posts!

We want to go back to Montecristi!

What a great time we had! We cant wait to go back to Montecristi, a small town in the northern area of the Dominican Republic, known for its “chivo liniero”, the magnificent “Morro” and its red sand beaches surrounded by mountains.  Truly an out of the ordinary place. We’ll post more pictures very soon!


Que bien la pasamos en Montecristi, una pequeña población en el norte de la República Dominicana.Tenemos muchísimas ganas de regresar muy pronto! Conocida por el “chivo linero”, el imponente “Morro” y sus playas de arena roja rodeada de montañas, es realmente un lugar extraordinario. Agregaremos más imágenes muy pronto!

Crazy about my new phone: Sony Experia L

We are usually Apple users, so I was not sure if I would really get used to having an Android phone, but my new Sony Experia L has completely exceeded any expectations I had about it, I absolutely love it! The design is very modern, easy to use and the screen quality and size is quite impressive.


Somos usuarias de los productos Apple, así que no estaba muy segura de si me acostumbraría a tener un teléfono Android, pero mi nuevo teléfono Sony Experia L ha excedido todas las expectativas que tenía, me encanta! El diseño del teléfono es muy moderno, fácil de manejar, y la nitidez de la pantalla y el tamaño es impresionante.

One of my favorite things is the camera’s capacity, a great help when you want to capture a high quality image on the go. Here is an image I took last night with my phone:


Algo que realmente me gusta es la capacidad de la cámara, de gran ayuda cuando quieres capturar una imagen de alta calidad rápidamente. Aquí una imagen que tomé anoche con mi teléfono:

So if you are thinking about a new phone, the Sony Experia family definitely has a great option for you! I got my Experia L in white 😀


Así que si estas pensando en un móvil nuevo, la familia Experia de Sony seguro tiene una opción que te aplica!  Yo tengo mi Experia L en blanco 😀
