Ibiza 2012

Ibiza 2012!!

So here I am, on THE Island!!
Sun is shinning and all the wild flowers are out!
The island is quiet still, so just floating in a relaxing atmosphere before the storm!

Found an apartment, is like walking in the 70’s!
Is so freaky, and the electric system, so dangerous!! If I put the washing machine and I want to do the washing up at the same time, I get electric shock trough the tap water!!! Oh shit, that’s going to burn the little dive instructor neurons that I have left!

Other than that, the dive centre look great and I can’t wait to be the 1st of May to open up and wait at the airport for Rob to arrive!!!

Went for a dive the other day, I know I such a chicken, but I was wearing a 5mm underneath my semi dry suit!! The poor DSD were freezing. Me I was ok in my 12mm of neoprene but secretly feeling very sorry for the 4 Indians (From Mumbai!!) and 2 Brazilians that were turning blue little by little… bless…
Nick wanted to invite us for dinner, to thank us for our help, and he asked me: what do you fancy? And the first think that came out of my mouth were CURRY!!!

Tomorrow I’m going to Denia, to fill up the batteries before the big start!
As well I’m going to pick up Mayday and Jack.
So our house is going to look like a rescue centre again!
Actually to pick them up in Denia is the perfect excuse for me to get to eat a nice paella, amazing tapas and hug my uncle, aunt and cousins that are there for the week end along with my parents!
Apparently the weather is going to be shit! But in Denia, who cares?
There is nothing more amazing than long walks on the beach under the rain, reading on the terrace looking at the angry sea, siesta next to the chimney, really, who cares??? Just a relaxing time…
I will make sure that on Monday morning before taking the boat back, I’m going to the market to get some nice things to bring back for emergency moments!!

By the way, as you probably have notice, I don’t really have internet connection.
I just use a “micro penis” from Vodafone that cost a little fortune to refill (I hate Vodafone!). Even is the “micro penis” is full, sometimes the internet connection still rubbish… loving the lack of technology…
Soon I will be down at the Diving centre all day, so in between dive I will have some more time to keep you posted!

Hope this find you all happy and full of energy, ready for the summer, the sun and the sea.

Lots of love

Just me…

Ps: more pictures to come…

Ohwauuuu I have been a busy and energetic girl… like usual actually!
Already 2 weeks back in Europe, a little bit freezing but not too much because the sun is shining in Spain and was shining in the south of France too!

So what’s new from St Martin’s departure?
On the air across the Atlantic with Jack and Mayday in a massive box.
Bless them, they were soooo good!
Arriving in Holland I went to Starbucks and they went to an “animal hotel” because apparently they shit all over the cage. It was not there fault! We wrote very big: “PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS” and guess what? They fed them!! Thanks to the team of animal care in Amsterdam that clean the cage and probably gave a massive joint to the dog and cat to calm them down!
Arrived to Madrid they actually put the cage on the luggage machine so they came out with all the bags, both sitting down in the massive cage (business class cage!) looking around and everybody laughing!  It was funny, for sure!

It was nice to be home! To see my mum and my dad and my old boy Nitrox!
The house is a little full now, but  Is good for Nitrox to socialize with the youth and to run after the cat, keep him fit and healthy if it doesn’t die of a heart attack!

A few days in Madrid, eating good food, enjoying the family and the sun and it was Easter! It was such a long time that I wasn’t home for Easter that I forgot! It was time to go to France and visit the French side of the family (the dark side! Just kidding, I love them!).
So after 8h on the road, stopping every 2h to make sure that Cat or dog didn’t piss or shit in the back of the car, we arrive to Perpignan.
My Grand mother, my sister (the little one lives there), and of course: my cousin plus boyfriend, aunty and oncle!
But that was not the end of the trip, just a little stop over before spending 3 days in the French Riviera (oh my god, sounds so posh… but actually it isn’t).
Antibes, beautiful little old town, with an amazing market, some very nice boats and a lot of charme.
Nice, very nice town, young, good energy, amazing front beach walk, with a lot of people walking and enjoying the sun set, taking the time for LIFE.
And Monaco, Montecarlo… what a strange place!!! Massive buildings (very ugly) next to very cute little houses, beautiful boats (I saw the Maltese Falcon not very pretty, but an incredible piece of engineering!), I have never seen such an amount of expensive cars in my life! Nearly pornographic when you know a little of what is going on in the world!
I did like to drive  on the Montecarlo circuit, that was cool!!!

Anyway, after many pictures, lots of food and wine, we went back to Perpignan to get some quality time with my sister and my grand mother. The weather was awesome  and we did lots of walking around in the little villages on the coast and in the inside.
Vines, lavender, rivers, sun, the sea… the Med can be very beautiful!

In a few days I’m packing again, this time for 7 months.
Ibiza is going to be my home, so I’m back on the Island!
I’m excited. Ibiza has something really special. I love the sea, the fields, the light, the people, and of course the food!

I’m noticing I’m talking a lot about food, but I was doing so well keeping my kilos up, and suddenly, with the moving around, and the lack of Nutella, is not so easy anymore!

So that is that for the life of the gypsy.
I guess I will do better with the blog when I get myself organized (is that going to happen one day?).
I can’t wait to see the white Island, my dear friend Nick (and of course my BOSS) and to be underwater! 2 weeks is too long.

In the other hand I’m a little sad because Mayday and Jack are staying in Madrid.
My Mum is not really a cat lover, so we try to give Jack away to a nice home with a good family and Mayday will stay with Nitrox… and we see.
I believe they will be fine and happy, they will forget about me very fast, probably way faster than me!

Anyway you guys, I hope everybody is happy and I send you a lot of love
