August 23, 2005
As I have mentioned in my previous blogs I am in Spain at the moment.
Whilst here I have been trying local foods and drink. While in the Basque country I tried cider, a drink which I enjoy and found I enjoyed more and now that I am in Cantabria I have just tried a local drink and have found that I am rather dizzy (there goes my resolution not to write blogs under the infulence).
All year I have known that I have a very low alcohol tolerance, but I am still shocked by it. I have a shot of a drink at 15% and I am really really dizzy adn have the strange urge to laugh and laugh and laugh.
I just hope my mum doesn´t notice!
Although during the term I often feel as though I am too busy to do anything that I actually want to do, at the moment I really miss having something to do.
So I´m on holiday with my family in Spain, not much of a big deal really, but I find that I am really missing having somethign to do. While travelling in the car for hours from one camp site to the next I often find myself wasting my time on thinking about stupid things.
For example during these holidays I have finally worked out why a Moses basket is called such, the name comes from the Bible story (something that has taken me a very long time to work out).
Similar revelations have come to me while on this holiday most of which have been stupid and when spoken aloud has caused everyone in my family to laugh.
".....go out in the midday sun"
OK, so whats the point of this, well I guess its true.
Well at the moment I am holidaying in Spain, and although I´m not doing much I´m having a good time.
At the moment I´m in the pyranees and today my dad and I decided to go walking up a mountain. Well not a big deal, but we decided to do this at midday with no sun protection, me in a dress and with no water.
While walking up we past some Spanish people walking down who told us that we were courageous for going up with no water, bloody stupid if you ask me.
And this istn´t the first time we´ve done this. In actyual fact this is thesecond time and its not as bad as the first wher we were doing a 26mile trek up a mountain in Colombia.
These things only happen with my dad, with my muym they would never happen.
We have been doing crazy things such as inching along cliff precipes since an early age and I´m sure my dad will encourage us to do these things for much longer.
