urban holiday

I'm still enjoying some free days (bank holiday!) and trying to make the most of them. We've been running errands everyday and feeling like tourists in the city, as we had not had a proper urban life for more than a year (still have not!). Anyway, I've always avoided crowds, but sometimes I forget that we used to walk and move through the streets without doing the 'covid shuffle'. Hoping that this is not going to be necessary soon. Distancing and masks are still compulsory here, even if many people are embracing the 'new normality', and embracing each other too. Not me. You can call me squeamish.
Next week I'll try to catch up with your blogs and comments!. I've missed it!
Sigo teniendo unos días libres, de vacaciones locales, e intento aprovecharlas todo lo posible. Hemos estado ocupados, haciendo recados cada día, y sintiéndonos como turistas en nuestra propia ciudad, porque hace más de un año que no hacemos vida urbana de verdad (seguimos sin hacerla, en realidad). De todos modos, siempre he evitado las multitudes, pero a veces se me olvida que solíamos caminar y movernos por la calle sin toda la coreografía de mantener las distancias. Espero que esto no sea necesario muy pronto. Sigue siendo obligatoria la mascarilla y demás precauciones, aunque mucha gente se está lanzando ya a la 'nueva normalidad' y unos en los brazos de otros. No es mi caso. Podéis llamarme maniática.
En la próxima semana intentaré ponerme al día con los blogs y comentarios. ¡Lo he echado de menos!.

  1. That sounds like a wonderful break being a tourist in your own town, especially when the town is as lovely as yours.
    Tow lovely sunny outfits, I love the big yellow basket, i think one of those is missing from my life and it might be 8am but it's warm and sunny here and I'm already envying your ice cold beer!
    We're supposed to be abandoning social distancing on 21st June and returmning to some kind of normal but I can't see that happening for a while yet! xxx

  2. Playing tourists in your own town is a wonderful way to spend a couple of days off, especially as it has been such a long time since you were able to enjoy city life. We'll be socially distancing and abstaining from hugging for quite a while yet, I presume. I'm still doing the "Covid shuffle", although a lot of people just do not take notice any longer. I'm loving both of your colourful Summer outfits, in particular the first one, with its pattern mixing of stripes and florals. How gorgeous is that top made from a second hand dress. You have given me an idea or two! Besos xxx

  3. We've been under a stay at home order since April and things are finally going to start opening up this weekend - I can't wait to do something that feels "normal" like browsing in a used bookstore, or sitting on a patio with a friend. I have only had one vaccine so until I get my second I will still be masking up when I am inside or around a large group of people.

  5. An urban break is a lovely way to spend your free time. I'm so glad things are getting back to normal for you, too. Loved the outfits, accessories and you look so pretty in pink!
