With Baby Jesus in Shopping Mall

What's the true meaning of Christmas?
Recently I came across a picture of one of Banksy's graffiti, showing crucified Jesus Christ holding in his hands full bags of Christmas shopping.  My reaction was immediate. This image fascinated me in an instant because I realized how true this picture was! 
It seems like nowadays Christmas is all about shopping, starting of  buying gifts for our relatives, modern gadgets/toys for kids and new clothes for ourselves ( because you can't wear the same dress from last year on your Xmas party!!!) 
Then when it comes to food we go crazy mad about it! We stuffing our fridges to the brim , like there was a serious threat of nuclear attack! Ha! Not to mention that our stomach will suffer 100 times more then our fridge ,when all the food, sooner or later ,will end up in your mouth! :P
So what's Christmas all about?
My first guesses are:
* presents * food * Christmas rush
Well, that looks pretty shallow, right? But when I think more about it,  …

I saw an Angel!!!

Hi guys!  Have a beautiful Christmas and have fun during this festive season!!!
And remember , miracles happen! An Angel just paid me a visit. LOL! :D

Letter to Santa Claus

Dear Santa, 
This year I made specially for you this secret passage, so you can't make any excuses that you couldn't get in! I think that the fireplace is large enough for you to get fit with a big bag of gifts!!!! Do not let me down!!! :P



PS: You know very well that I eat healthy and that's why by the fireplace I leave fruits for you instead of cookies.
You're welcome! :P

The art of being yourself

I watch all this cool people on Youtube, on the other side of my computer screen , and very often thoughts like such hunt me:
* I wish I could have her/his confidence , charm, beauty, cleverness , incredible personality....
* I wish I could speak English like she does
* I wish I could be that funny with beautiful white teeth, or at least have that great camera!!! 
But if I would have all this qualities would I still be me?


In the world where being a part of any community looks like it's a must , sometimes I also get that need to belong somewhere/ be like somebody else, forgetting that life is more interesting when you do things in your own way, rather than being a part of one social mind who thinks and makes decisions for you.

The Magic of Christmas

December it's a very specific month where people who celebrate Christmas go crazy mad about Christmas presents! We buy stuff for our family and friends , the same stuff which will be on sale on 26th! Haha! But who would like to wait till after Christmas for its presents? Definitely not ME! The most important is to find a gift under the Xmas tree on 24th or early in the morning on 25th. Tired, sweaty in crowded shopping centres looking for gifts for our loved ones. Prise does not matter! ;) 
This is the magic of Christmas. 


 By the time when the last piece of Xmas wrap falls on the floor, most of us will end up with another pair of warm Christmas socks ;P

Greetings from Dublin!

Hola my Canarian amigos! Como estas? ;)


As you can see, we also have here sea and mountains with breathtaking views!  It's true that the weather is not as great as in Las Palmas ,but wearing a warm hat and scarf also has its charm ;P 




So don't hesitate! Buy a ticket today because we are waiting for you guys!  And hopefully we'll see you soon!!!

Houston we have a problem!

Would you like to live in a world where people do things they hate? Would you imagine to being dependant of people who don't like their jobs, and just do it because is well paid? 
That's not a positive vision, isn't?


So here I am! Staring at the window and wondering - what should I do now? 2 weeks ago we came back form our biggest adventure , which was amazing by the way, but my big fat plan stopped at that very moment I  have walked into our apartment in Dublin.  So I'm out of employment and thinking  : Mags, that could be an opportunity to finally find a right job for you! ( or get heart attack from car insurance that I should pay a few weeks ago! )
Recently I came across that inspiring quote:
"What you most fear is what you most desire"
That gave me something to think about. My biggest fear right now is to being permanent unemployed....and according to this golden thought I'm on the right track!!! LOL! :D

88 days of Summer

That was definitely the best Summer ever! :D Dream BIG, because dream do come true! 

xoxo Mags

Our last day - 88

We just came back from the beach and it seems like I don't need even bother to pack my summer clothes back to Dublin!  Bye, bye flip-flops. Tomorrow I will exchange you for warm shoes and winter hat.

The best holidays ever!!!

Day 87

Dear Diary,

Our big adventure in Las Palmas is nearly finish. Tomorrow is our last day :( I can't believe how fast these three months went by! It was an amazing experience to live our dream life. No hassle, no rush, just excellent weather ( mostly :P ) , beach, sea , delicious food ,and of course beautiful people we met! Our budget shrunk "a little" during these three months, but no money is too big for what we experienced! I will definitely miss Las Palmas, in particular I'll miss our new friends, and I hope we'll see you again some day!!! Muchas gracias for everything!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
with love, Mags

Day 81

Haha! What do you think about my new tattoo? :P

Day 79

Today our friends took us for a mission in the mountains to collect chestnuts. We were cold as fuck, but it was fun. :)


I didn't know that chestnuts can be eaten straight from the tree! And there are so delicious!!!

Day 78

OMG! Just 10 days left! Time to get the most of it! :D Lay on the beach till sunstroke, swim in the sea up to the point when all your body is covered with wrinkles, and finally ,drink and eat till stomach aches! Haha!

Day 76

I have a friend. Her name is Paola. I met her in Las Palmas. She barley speaks English. I can't speak Spanish, beside few words , but somehow we get along. She talks to me in Spanish, I talk to her in English and we always found some common ground - common words that are similar to those two languages. But when it comes to Crossfit, we understand each other without any words! We just need to look at each other and we know that now is the time to skip few reps or run a few meters less :D

Day 72

Sun, sun, sun.....We had even shorten our daily sunbathing time because simply is too hot for us! But on the other hand we don't need that much sun anymore, because at this stage we are as black as Michael Jackson in his good days :P

Day 70

Days just fly! OMG I can't believe that less than 3 weeks left for us! Soon enough we'll be flying home :( Big apology to all my fans ( especially my two moms! ) for not posting any photos. Sorry guys but I had a good reason! And the reason was hosting a guest. By the way, so many of our friends were planning to visit us and none of them did so! Shame on you guys! Such an opportunity may never repeat! :P Only the most unexpected people visited us - my brother with wife and Bart's brother - Patrick ,which we hosted till today.


And one more time....just let me take a selfie :D

Day 62

Another idyllic day in Las Palmas :D

The challenge for today was to catch the fish. Unfortunately we both failed :P

Day 57&58

Camping
I was 16 years old when last time I slept in a tent. That seems like ages ago! So I was super excited for weekend to sleep in a tent in the middle of Gran Canaria. 

The best part was to wake up in the mountains before the sunset. 


Our team :D

Day 52

Today was a good day for spontaneous decisions :D  I went to random hairdressing salon and I said: I want to cut my hair short ! And I showed gap between my fingers, not wider than 2 cm.  After 30 minutes my new hairstyle was ready :)

:D:D:D

And that is the guy who created my new look


I guess, he just copied his own hairstyle!!! Haha!

Day 45&46

Celebrating my 29th birthday! :D
Bart had a plan for my birthday for a quite some time , which kept in secret till the very end!  I tried all my tricks to get something out of him, but he was relentless.  And finally the day of my birthday came but I still didn't know where we are going till that very moment when GPS displayed the name of our destination.
Welcome to Puerto Rico!!!



And then was romantic cruise ...

snorkeling....


and beautiful sunset!

The next day was pretty challenging! We drove in the hart of the island to climb on volcanic rock , the second highest peak on Gran Canaria.
Rogue Nublo 






Hurray! We made it! :D



I wonder what you come up with for my next birthday :P
