autumn walks

We've gone out for some excursions last week, making the most of some sunny days. I won't lie to you, it is not warm, snowy mountains can be seen in the distance and we have that distinctive chilly northern breeze, but I'm all right with that. I can even deal with rainy days, but they're not my cup of tea during excursions, nor walks on muddy paths!.

Hemos salido de excursión la semana pasada, aprovechando unos días soleados y secos. Tampoco es que haya hecho ningún calor, se ven los montes nevados en la distancia y tenemos ese vientecillo típico del norte, pero nada que sea de verdad molesto. Incluso llevo bien la lluvia, pero me fastidiaría durante las excursiones, y caminar en el barro no me motiva!.

We've also visited the famous monastery of San Millán, where some of the first words in Spanish were written (as notes to latin documents which people didn't understand yet: glosas emilianenses). We only took the visit to the original monastery, built up in the mountain in the 6th century (even if some parts were added until the 12th century). We had to left the visit to the lower and 'more modern' monastery for another occasion.
También fuimos de visita al famoso monasterio de San Millán, donde se escribieron algunas de las primeras palabras en español, las glosas emilianenses. Sólo visitamos el monasterio original, construído en la ladera de la montaña en el siglo VI (aunque tiene añadidos hasta el siglo XII), dejamos la visita al otro monasterio de abajo, más 'moderno' para otra ocasión.
Have a fabulous week!

  1. i would´t mind a northern breeze too in that fabulous shearling coat!!
    love it with the beautiful patterned dress underneath...... the colours of the 2.look are stunning together.
    the architecture of the very old monastery is absolutely gorgeous - the high rooms, the pillars and this delicate stone carvings - magic. and the snowy mountains tickling my inner snow queen ;-D

  2. That shearling coat is just perfect to combat those Northern breezes! Your C&A dress has been a wise investment, hasn't it? It's a gorgeous all-seasons one too. The vintage 80s dress of your second outfit is a stunner too, and I love how you paired it with those sea-green opaques.
    I'm quite envious of your excursion to the monastery of San Millán. What an atmospheric place and such a stunning setting too. Those snowy mountains in the background look amazing! Besos xxx

  3. I love your new C&A dress and how you've paired it with blues...the shearling coat those boots look very cosy indeed! Love the vinatge 80s dress; fab colours. San MIllan looks so lovely. I love monasteries; they always seem very peaceful places. I don't like muddy paths either!

  4. San Millan monastery is spectacular, I absoltely love the colour of the stone and those intricate carvings. The view is amazing.
    I love your winter outfits, so much colour and interest! I'm wearing the same Beach Bum Snag tights today, too - I think your cold weather is heading to the UK this weekend. xxx

  5. So many pretty outfits. The second one really stone my heart, with that purple dress and aquamarine tights. The San Millan monastry looks like a fantastic place to visit.

  6. Brrr! It must be so cold up on those mountains - and cold when the wind blows down them to where you are.

    It must be amazing to be where the first words of Spanish were written - is the monastery Visigothic?

    1. It is Visigothic and Mozarabic and a little bit romanesque too, layers of art and life in a small building!
