Winter Zoo

The best things in life are free. Flip side, there’s no such thing as free dinner. Nature’s free for everyone. Inspiring and motivating us, making us feel good being surrounded by greenery, water or even sitting warm sunshine’s free. How we as humans treat nature maybe we shouldn’t haven’t it for free. Without sounding too preachy our actions may not immediately affect our own countries environments instead affecting other countries environments and how nature’s linked, it will affect our countries at some point. Nature always wins. Nature likes to survive. Nature likes balance. I sometimes feel we as humans are the caretakers of Earth and we’re not doing a great job looking after it. Nature on our own doorstep might not feel or look as beautiful as a far away tropical climate to care, (those in that tropical place might feel the same?) but it is and it’s free.

I know many people don’t agree with zoos (maybe if we took better care of nature and the environment we wouldn’t need them). There are some bad ones out there. Barcelona Zoo’s aim is to help endangered species around with world and raise awareness of Spain’s own wild animals. Some resident enclosure’s I’d love to be bigger Continue reading “Winter Zoo”

Early Spring Sunshine

Spring’s here early and I’ve caught the cliche Spring Cleaning. Maybe it’s the change of light that’s making a few things look tired and faded or the light’s making things look different and in need of change. Whichever one, I’ve been switching and moving things around in the apartment, having a mini KonMari Method clean out and feeling change of happier energy in general. Cliche I know! Spring’s always a wake up season after a season of hibernating so maybe I’ve caught that energy and have a whole host of ideas I want to get moving.

Living in a city you don’t notice seasonal changes as much. Grey becomes a different tone of lifeless grey. Continue reading “Early Spring Sunshine”

Mid/Late Spring Zoo Photos Part 1

I’ve been keeping zoo photos to a minimum for a while. Mainly to avoid repeats, same old, does she ever take photos other than at the zoo. Sometimes! 

I know when studying animals especially their behaviour you’re not meant to apply anthropomorphism. Likening human behaviour, traits, mannerisms to animals. It’s hard not to when the chimps are waiting Continue reading “Mid/Late Spring Zoo Photos Part 1”

Last Weekend of April and May Day 2017 Part 2: The Zoo, Earth Day Fair and Parc del Garraf

Part of of the last weekend of April and May Day can be found here.

I waited until the rain had stopped Sunday morning before running. I don’t mind running in the rain, however the rain was meant to stop half way through my run and as it was warmish I didn’t want deal with running tying jackets around my waist. I took advantage of waiting to get some overdue tidying done. That was until we went to Ikea this week to replace some shelving units, pulled everything out that I’ve still to go through along with rearranging furniture. The changes are better, so much space opened up!

Parc del Garraf

Run done in perfect running weather and hardly anyone out (even better!) Continue reading “Last Weekend of April and May Day 2017 Part 2: The Zoo, Earth Day Fair and Parc del Garraf”

This week’s disappeared once again in cleaning and while I don’t mind running in drizzle or rain, grey skies.
