It has been a year since I was packing and unpacking stuff from and old home to a new one. I have changed beds four times in the last four years. Maybe it’s my lucky number.
It was not a pleasant experience searching for a new apartment here in Madrid: for some reason everything we saw was either too old or too expensive, until we found the current place where I’m now typing from.
We were supposed to be in Barcelona right now but a turn of events made us reconsider our decision. We are still recording our album here and it was kind of precipitated to leave it mid way and move to another city.
So here I am posting from our new home. I am proud to say I packed and unpacked everything in three days. I cleaned and organized pretty much like the little OCD freak I am in one day and oh… you have no idea how excited I am to start decorating. I will try to find a balance between that and the recording.
As soon as I am settled in I will show more before and after pics!
P.S: Nina is absolutely in love with the big balcony.
There we were, climbing up the stairs of an old building. All I was thinking was “what did we get ourselves into?”. But when the owner opened the big wooden door, we were relieved. A small hallway hugged us with a warm welcome. Natural light was peaking in the living room area and I immediately smiled. I didn’t have to see the rest of the flat to know this was the place.
In a near future I will paint the walls white. You guys know how much I love to redecorate! Yesterday we went furniture-shopping and found some lovely stuff.
I am so happy to start this new chapter and share it with you all!
I have to confess I have had a really hard time finding a place to live. When I was looking for an apartment in Miami it was so much easier. But after long days and walking like a marathon athlete, we found a lovely place to start from scratch.
The new is located in an old building near Madrid’s downtown. It is a very calm and tranquil neighborhood with tons of little stores around it. It had two rooms: one will be Jimmy’s office where he will be working all day long and the other one will be our bedroom. The living room is really nice. We have two small balconies with a lovely view where we can peak between trees and take a glance at people walking.
We don’t count with an elevator, but I think it will do us good to climb some stairs until the 3rd floor everyday (until it is time to buy water and it won’t be that fun at all.)
Soon I will try to go back to the original weekly mode of this blog’s format, but until then, I will be keeping you updated in the “Miscelaneous” section.
Dear Madrid, I have officially arrived!
I am still looking for a place to live and it has been a little hard, but I am getting there. I found some interesting places and some terrible crack-house style apartments but I have the feeling that we will find something we really like. I can’t wait to share new photos of our trip so far and I believe this is going to be a very interesting adventure.
May you all have a wonderful week!
