Thing to do in Denia

Post dedicated to my friend Lucie, who is visiting my hometown just when I am not there ;*

 -Spend a morning (or a day) in La Cova Tallà. You will need good shoes to walk and good shoes to enter to the see (there is no sand). Perfect to do Snorkel. Here how to arrive.

-Go to the castle. Sometimes at the evennings there is like music. Check the website of the castle.  And walk throw the old neigborhood.

-Have tapas at Calle Loreto. I like "Diego Bar" and "De Pepo".   For a more formal dinner go to Les Monges. If you want a Paella (at midday) go to Casa Federico.  You  have to try this tapas "pop sec", "sang amb ceba", eriçons, gamba roja, pilota de putxero, tigres....

One of my favourite beach is El trampoli. Is nice to do snorkel and you can arrive by bike, it's not far from Denia, like 5km. If you want to sand I like also Les Deveses.

One morning, go to have breakfast to La Xara, al Hotel LLacer: The speciality is Coques: all are really good and this is the best place from the Marina to try them.  We eat them for breakfast, for lunch... they are so good (I could say this is one of my favourite dish from La Marina).  It's nice to arrive by bike and to have the reward after the ride.

 -Denia is known for the Windsurf.
 Is at the end of the Marines, at the Deveses beach. If you don't want to do windsurf, that beach is really wonderfull. Go one evening and have a drink at the chiringuito Los Baños, while looking the sea.

-Mondays there is Mercadillo and Fridays there is Rastro (Antiques). Always at Torrequemada.  Very cheap out clothes outlets. Go very early in the morning, it's so hot after 10.30 !!

-Friday there is also fresh market at the center, close to the real market. Really cheap but very good vegetables and fruit.

-Don't forget to drink everyday horxata, or to try a "Blanco y Negro de turrón" (ice coffe with ice cream!).

-Go to the end of the Port and return by boat taking La Panseta (a free boat).

-Faro de San Antonio has nice views of Denia and Xabia. Go to the sunset.

-If you are tired of Denia 'beaches, you can go to Xabia, to la Cala Granadella. Again with rocks, bring good shoes.

Want to visit more around La Marina? I would go to La Marjal de Pego  at the evenning (rice fields),  to Altea (beautiful mediterranean village).

I am not a pub girl, but if you want to go for some drinks at night, I normally go to Carrer la mar, where there are a lot of bars there. If you "Sensa" is a really cool- expensive bar close to the sea. The chiringuitos of the beach are open at night and it's also a good option and more relaxed.

Some general recomendations: Denia is so hot during the day! In summer we normally spend mornings /afternoons at the beach/sea/swimming pool and we have a break to do a siesta at home in the hotest hours.  Afternoons has a nice temperature after 20h, so that time is when people starts to get ready to go for a walk and to have dinner.

Gaspatxo fresquet ara que ve l'estiu



Un gaspatxo molt fácil de fer i que en l'últim més ja l'he preparat dos cops!
Us deixo amb la recepta.

Notas sobre la trofologia



-Eliminar embutits i evitar la carn en la mesura de lo possible.
-Així, una sang nodrida per fruites crues serà fluida, vitalitzada i alcalina, exempta de matèries àcides, ja que tot i les fruites més àcides tenen reacció alcalina en la sang.
-La digestió normal es manifesta per bona elaboració, amb excrements abundants, inodors, cilíndrics i de color bronzejat; a més, l'intestí es desocupa ben bé, matí i tarda. Una sola evacuació al dia és insuficient, perquè demostra que els residus de la digestió i també la bilis han estat retinguts més de vint hores en el cos, amb el que es impurifica la sang. El normal és desocupar completament el ventre cada vuit hores.
-Menjar sempre amb gana. Si no tens sensació de gana no cal menjar.
-No barrejar fruites acides amb  dolces. Fruites dolces: poma, mango, pruna,papaya, platan, pressec,pera.  Fruites acides: maduixa, kiwi, guayaba, taronja, llimona, pinya, mandarina, raïm, frambuesa, arandanos,


Sobre les dietes
Per començar simplificar la dieta a 1-2productes per apat. S'ha de beure molta aigua en el día a día, pero no durant l'apat, ja que dilueix els acids gastrics i fa més dificil la digestió


Esmorzar
En dejú un suc natural. Aquí el més fácil es fer-se un suc de taronja o un batut de fruites amb aigua.

Dinar
Es l'apat principal del dia.  Lo ideal sería menjar d'hora, però clar, tot depen de l'hora que et despertis.  Començar sempre amb una amanida amb productes frescos de temporada.  El segón minimitzar els ingredients. No fer salses rares:cereals, llegums o patata són una bona combinació. Vapor, forn i planxa.

Sopar
El sopar ha de ser el menjar amb menys calories i quantitat de menjar. Cal anar-se'n a dormir amb l'estómac buit o almenys amb la sensació i per això hi ha tres opcions: 1 menjar molt poc, 2 menjar coses molt suaus o 3 només fruita.
Si opteu per l'opció 2 el millor és prendre verduretes en forma de sopa, fruita en forma de farinetes, i alguna proteïna en forma de formatge o iogurt.


Cada 15 dies fer dejú: Mai descarts fer dejuni ja que és molt bo per netejar i no tenir gula alhora de menjar.  Pot ser saltar-un dinar, estar dotze hores sense menjar o estar-quatre hores, cada quinze dies a base de sucs de fruites.

Rupit














Un dia plujos i sobretot amb molta boira del més d'abril, d'aquest abril boig que hem tingut amb tanta pluja ! Va ser genial perqué varem fer la ruta de senderisme sense creuar-nos amb ningú més. El poble maco però molt dedicat al turísme.

About my 2015 list


I made that 2015 list and then I stopped blogging, don't know what yet. One year later, did I follow  my 2015 list? an update : 

-find a job in interiorism /architecture   I didn't. I searched during 8 months and then I found a job as a office manager inwhich I will have to do the interior design of the office. Not bad. 
-eat more fruit and gain some kilos. I should work more on this. Not on gaining kilos, but on eating fresh fruit. 
 -spend a weekend in Paris and visit my friend Laurie  Still on my to-do list. 
- spend time outside every day  Kind of. Minimum one hour per day while I am cycling.
-learn french  Still on my to-do list. 
- spend  three weeks in a farm (thinking on Belgium or France) That's a long story: I applied and was acepted for a farm in Sweden, but then after writing to my Sweden friend about this she told me that I should go some weeks to Herrang, a swing dance camp, where I could volunteer there. I did this instead. I volunter in this camp for one month, where I had a really nice experience and as I had already found a job before I left I had to return and cancell the farm part for another year. 
-start drawing again Trying hard!
- continue to focus on quality - not quantity - I could apply this to everything ...in the photos I take, food I buy and clothes.  Yes, I do. Also focusing in borrowing and not buying. There a lot of things you don't need to really buy. 
 -continue with the minimalist  Yes I do!
-cotinue to declutter my wardrove  Yes! Everyday with less clothes on my closet. 
-continue to reading before bed Not too much. 
-continue with the ioga  I left it. I would like to restart. I had a really good teacher and then one day they left the school and I didn't like the new teacher. 
-continue with the swing Yes i do !
-continue to use less public transport and more bike. I did. I cycle every where and I only take the metro for weekends when I'm not alone. I'm so happy that I 'm saving so much in transport!!

A weekend in 2014


El cap de setmana eren molt tranquils i casolans per compensar els dies de feïna que no parava per casa.




Ens despertavem tard i feiem un brunch a l'estil americà, com no podia ser d'una altra manera: suc de taronja, revuelto d'ous amb tabasco, bacó, i torrades de pa amb embutit variat. Ell es feia un café de Nespresso, en plan sibarita. Teniem la cafetera al menjador, junt amb el microhones que ell havia comprat perqué no es podia viure sense microhones.  Com jo estava en contra d'ocupar més superficie de marbre de la cuina i menys amb un microhones, se'l vaig fer possar al menjador.


Després del brunch baixavem cap a la Barceloneta. Diria que ens vem passar gairebe tots els caps de setmana pel barri de la Barceloneta, platja principalment. 

La resta del día passejavem, quedavem amb el nostre grup d'amics que en aquella época eren l'Oscar, Patricia, Alexandra,etc. el mateix grup a través del qual ens vem coneixer.
