Vacation time

And I'm here again. New month, new outlook at life! (not really, but I'm trying)

Lan Airlines has tickets to Europe on sale. I'm very tempted to buy one for next year. I was planning on going to the World Cup in Brazil next year, but the friend I was going with is now pregnant, so no money nor time to do that kind of thing for a while. I've been thinking of going to Europe for a while now... I have relatives in Denmark, Germany and Norway, and all of them have invited me to visit them since we took care of them when they were here in Chile. I haven't had a proper vacation since New York in August of last year, so I have lots of days saved to visit almost everywhere. I want to go to London and Bruges as well. I've been saving money as well, though it will be way expensive anyway.

The only vacation time I took properly this year was a week on February, when I went with my parents down south, to Punta Arenas. Half the trip was spend on sea watching humpback whales (they were beautiful and big and playful and wow!) and the other half was spend in the far south of Tierra del Fuego relaxing watching foxes, penguins, condors and very unwelcomed beavers. It was very nice, but oh, so short a time!

OK, that's all I'm gonna write today. But I did write!! I'll try and write more tomorrow.

Travelling FTW.

I just got back from Canada and the US less than a week ago. I also saw humpbacks being playful and WOW off the coast of Tadoussac in Quebec. AMAZING!!!!

Yeah, travelling is the best! And humpbacks are amazing. One kept moving back and forth from one side of the boat to the other like it knew people wanted to take pictures up close.

Also, hi! Nice to see you again. I've been scrolling your LJ but until I watch the last season of Breaking Bad I not gonna read much :P

One kept moving back and forth from one side of the boat to the other like it knew people wanted to take pictures up close. We had the exact same thing happening!! And because we were only on a zodiak (with, like, ten people), up close was most definitely UP CLOSE! I had to zoom my camera OUT at one stage to avoid having a screen filled with indistinguishable grey!

Oh, yeah, definitely avoid my LJ until you're caught up! It's basically ALL BrBa ALL the time!! As is my brain. And the rest of my life!!

Did you know that Alex's dad is making an appearance this season?? Are you still watching? I half am, and this has pretty much guaranteed that I will be for a while yet!!

Oh yeah, I KNOW!!!

Last year was so terrible the only thing I got out of the season was Alex buying Meredith's house. I enjoyed the Mer-Cris-Alex moments during the new premiere. Why can the show get THAT so right, and everything else wrong?? Sigh.

All I know is that James Remar as Alex's dad is gonna be around for several episodes, so I'm excited and terrified at the same time! Do you know when is he suppose to show up?

I'm pretty sure I read it was early in the season, but I'm not sure when exactly.

I have a love/hate relationship with the Mer/Cris/Alex scene from the premiere because of the completely unnecessary Izzie bashing that also took place in it. But there is a sneak peek for the next episode floating about that is Alex/Cris and it is priceless!!

I read other similar reactions to that comment, though for me it wasn't that big of a deal. All of them tend to talk about their past relationships like they were crap, more or less. The focus is always on how they ended instead of why they came to be in the first place.

I'll look for the sneak peek when I get the time!
