Spring is made of color9:00 AM
Cherry trees blossoming everywhere. That is enough proof that Spring is already here, although the whole week trip has been full of dark clouds and some rainy moments.
Extremadura is the place for flowers and blossoming trees, amazing colors and countryside vibes. The whole area is full of that peaceful, inspiring atmosphere which leads you to experiment with colors, mix the basics and get some surprising outfits with unexpected pops of color and shapes.
It's quite amazing how the town of Mérida has managed to create that same mix I was talking to you about referred to clothing on their buildings and urbanism. It's incredible how one of the most important roman cities of the country on the ancient times has evolved into a city which mixes statues, brick and traditional architecture with modern concrete façades and some of the greenest streets I've ever seen.
Second day of the trip and we visited the Roman Art Museum at Mérida, I did some serious shopping (seriously, silver and precious metal craftsmanship pieces are to die for) and finally paid a visit to the tiny town were the relatives live. As I said, I'm such a city girl, that's why going to a town where everybody is related somehow, where you have to stop driving because a chicken is standing on your way or there is no need to visit the supermarket twice a week (because they're mostly auto-sufficient when it comes to meat and vegetables) is quite the experience for me.
Sometimes we are not conscious enough of our surroundings until we do a massive change on the scene!
