SUMMER RE-CAP

I've been putting off blogging for awhile and fully embracing the 'part-time' aspect of my instagram title. To kick off summer David and I went to Marbella for a family holiday. I still don't think I got my fill of fried fish and cold claras. Already looking forward to a trip back over Christmas holidays. 

In other summer news, it seems I wore white as much as possible (also stayed indoors as much as possible with Shanghai's recording-breaking high temps). My girlfriend May and I joined a pilates studio and have been loving it - even recruiting a few more friends to join us in the madness. It also helps that there are some great cocktail spots nearby for a small refresher after class!

SEVILLE IN SEPTEMBER

ROADTRIP TO RONDA

After the wedding festivities David and I took a roadtrip west. Along the way we stopped in Ronda, where Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles spent many summers. Ronda is the birthplace of modern bullfighting and home to the oldest bullring in Spain. The Ronda School for Bullfighting is still known today for its classicism and strict adherence to the rules. 

We walked down the Camino de los Molinos to get a better view of the Puente Nuevo (new bridge). Despite the name, the bridge took 42 years to building, joing the old Moorish town to the El Mercadillo parts of the city. The views of El Tajo gorge are stunning from the Parador hotel as well, which sits adjacent to the bridge.
