Wishful Destinations


Nicaraguan Flag

Nicaragua: dec 25-4 jan

Had a wonderful time being back in Nicaragua after 4 years, showed Bert the pretty places around.

Central Park

New York: nov 21-25

Visited Elena in Manhattan. Her place (67th & Madison!) was so cute, the interiour so specially done. I loved her location, next to the park & right in the middle of the city's most famous shops. The breakfast place around the corner served delicious fresh Foccacias with Parma ham & truffel, oh they were amazing. Went shopping in Bloomies, eat sushi in a lively restaurant, went to see Frida, walked around Soho on a sunny afternoon. Not to forget i spent one day with Clare in New Hope (PA) at her farm, what a pretty town.

Sevil & me

Istanbul: oct 11-13

Warmest welcome by Sevil & Sencer. We did an ultra-speedy sightseeing through Istanbul with Sevil.  we did the main atractions: The Hagia Sophia, The Grand Bazaar, Sabanci museum, The Bosphorus, Yerebatan Sarayy (sunken underground Palace), Palace Sultanahmet Mosque (the Blue Mosque) this is the only mosque in the world with 6 minarets.  Loved the city, loved our company, loved the food!!

Jerez de la Frontera: sept 14-23

WEG was held in Jerez de la Frontera. Jerez is a very nice place. It's a very horse minded place but offers you great wines, ancient buildings, flamenco and bullfights. Besides the horses we took a day-off at the beach in Chipiona, went to see a bull-fight in Jerez (quite an experience!) and spend the last day in Sevilla. Sevilla is amazing and since we didnt have much time we did a fast but perfect sightseeing tour by horsecarriage. In our hotel (Alfonso XIII) by coincidence I met a friend (Marjory) from Brazil that i hadnt seen for 10 years.
