Just a minute in...October

Seemed yesterday when I was waiting for my first two weeks of vacation and now I have just realized that we are yet next to November. So it means that it's time for our montly appointment!

As you understood by reading the first lines of this post, October for me passed really rapidly. I spent two weeks in complete relaxation, playing computer games, reading, cooking and baking. The stay in the hot springs of Abano Terme...it was waiting! I relaxed and recharged for start a new strong period at work with the right energy and with the best dose of optimism. During this month I meet again my sweet friend Martina, even if only for less than one hour I was very happy to see her again. Other? Oh yes! I baked a lot. It was a long time since I baked so and I really enjoyed.

Vacation

Hello my readers!

Yesterday night I came back from my vacation at hot springs in Abano Terme. My boyfriend and I stayed there from 10th to 14th October in total relaxation.
We left our homes on Monday mornings, at 9:30 a.m. and we arrived at the hotel-hot springs "Igea Suisse" at 11:00 a.m.
We registered our arrival and we stayed in the hall of the hotel untill lunch. At 14:00 we received the key for the room so we went in and we spent the rest of the afternoon there sleeping, playing computer games or watching TV. In the evening we had dinner and than we came back to our room.

The moring after we had an abundant continental breackfast and then we stayed out for all the morning, having a look around the big neighborhood full of hotels with hot srpings and pretty shops. We went back to the hotel for lunch and in the afternoon we went to the pool. We spent all the afternoon between the pool with Jacuzzi and the sauna. Later we had a long relaxing shower before dinner. After dinner we were so tired (and relaxed) that we fell asleep very quickly.

I've tried to take the picture of this grilled pork chop, but I could not because it was so delicious that it desappeared before I could take my camera :P
On wednesday we stayed in the pool all the day and on thursday  morning we prepared our suitcases. After breackfast wewalked around the neighborhood for shopping and taking some picture for my blog. In the afternoon we went in the chocolate shop opposite our hotel and...it was wanderful! I took a delicious hot chocoalte and then we bought some pralines to bring back home for our families. After dinner we left the hotel for our homes.
After more than one year of work I was looking for a relaxing vacation with my boyfriend. I don't want complain about my job, absolutely! I really like it and above all I am happy of working there. It is phisically and psycologically hard and I really needed a period of breack. Now I feel completely recharged and ready for restart, on next Monday, with my schedule from 19:00 to 23:30 (closing of the restaurant).

Where do you go for relax? How do you relax when you are particularly tired? I will really appreciate your comments.
Have a nice weekend

Anime Review: My hero Academia

"Boku no Hiro Academia" or "My Hero Academia" is the anime version of the manga created by Kohei Horokoshi.

Human beeings are able to develop superpoewrs thanks to a genetic mutation. These superpowers are called Quirk and people who possess these special abilities are part of a new category: the Hero. These Hero fight against Villains who spread panic all over the world.

I liked the first series of the anime, it is a good new generation shonen. Now I am waiting for the second one that is coming (soon I hope).

Intensely recommended
Yours

Anime Review: Kotetsujou no kabaneri

"Kotetsujo no kabaneri" by Tetsuro Araki is an anime setted in the years of the industrial revolution. A strange virus transforms people in zombies, called kabanes, who can't be killed unless hit their heart. On Hinomoto island people built fortified train stations to cope with this dangerous situation. The main character, Ikoma, is an ingeneer that created a new arm that can break the iron protection around the hearts of the kabanes.

The anime is good I liked it. The story is quite simple, sometimes taken for garanted but I loved more the steampunk atmosphere. My boyfriend and I will take inspiration from this anime to bild something for our next cosplay.

I liked also zombies waves, similar to those of the film "Warld War Z". I loved in particular the scenes where kabanes attached all together growing in a bigger one.

Well, I cannot say more, as usual, because if you are interested in watch it you should watch it without I be a spoiler.

Good vision.
Emily
