We are in the midst of the coldest part in Norway and it is snowing outside. Despite that it is very cozy sitting inside looking out the window at the snow enjoying a hot cup of chocolate or take a walk in the winter wonderland when it is not snowing, I cannot help myself to think about the summer of 2015 when Johan and I went to Spain to visit the city and live in the house where Johan spent his summers when he was younger. We went to their family’s summer house in Spain for 10 days and it was magical and we have great memories from it.
Last summer we did not go away due to Johan’s master thesis writing and the fact that we did not have a job. We stayed in Norway the whole summer which was nice in some way but I missed the real summer since the temperature rarely reaches the levels of Spain. Even though it was necessary to do that in order to take care of the things that led to our life today it is not fun to stay in Norway the whole year. Norway is a beautiful country but I go crazy if I don’t take a trip outside the country from time to time.
Benidorm has a lot of things to offer and it was very fun to relive Johan’s teenager life. We went to the same beach they used to sunbath, ate at the same restaurants and so on. We visited the tapas bars and guess what, Spain is so much more than tourists, sun and the beach. It has a very strong culture and the food is just amazing. Johan has promised me to take me to Seville where he lived for some time during his studies where I will have the opportunity to get to know Spain even better.
Anyway, back to Benidorm, as you can see from the pictures we had a lot of fun. Benidorm is also a city for the ones who loves to party and we had to try out the nightlife as well when we were there. Benidorm is also know for the beautiful men and woman dancing on the tables on in the bars which can be see from the promenade at the beach. I am not going to lie to you guys I like well exercised men and that is why Johan is going to attend the gym in the beginning of 2017. You can see a picture of me with a well exercised man below which I got very fascinated about. I always wanted to go to the bar where he danced since I liked to have something nice to look at while enjoying a couple of drinks haha. The fun part about this story is that when I finally got the chance to take a picture with him it was not how I had foreseen it at all. The guy was smelling haha and Johan was laughing so hard when he heard that. He told me that he may not have his body but at least he doesn’t smell.
Above you can see Johan and I on a romantic restaurant where we were enjoying an Italian pizza. They played music and it was so wonderful to sit there and enjoy each other’s company and the warm night of Benidorm.You can also see a beautiful village called Altea which has an old town that is so amazing with old white houses and narrow streets. We had to visit another Italian restaurant on our way back to Norway in Alicante. The plane did not leave before early morning and that is why we took the opportunity to visit the city before taking a late cab to the airport.
Well, back to reality again. We will definitely travel in 2017 but now we have to focus on our jobs and our life here in Norway.
