I can´t believe that I walked 2.4 kms. and climbed 500 meters ( in sandals and mini skirt) just to see this forest filled with colored painted eyes, dots, stripes and everything in-between. Okay fine, I was throwing dagger looks at my tour guide aka the hubz for not telling me sooner that it´s going to be an almost 3-km trek with a steep and very rough road on the last 500 meters. Good thing my sandals survived in one piece until the top. Whew! If not, I´d go ballistic( which I already did on the first 1 km under the hot afternoon sun) again. I almost gave up actually at the foot of the forest just when my very lanky husband
My trekking outfit and dirty feet, hahaha!
And a little bit more:
|top- Sfera, skirt- New Yorker, bag- from Morocco, bracelets- H&M, local store|
Where: El Bosque Pintado(Oma, Vizcaya, País Vasco)
These were just some of the photos which I took late in the afternoon and so excuse the poor quality. All trees in this area were painted by the famous Spanish Basque artist Agustin Ibarrola. The whole work was colorful, playful and quirky. Worth the trek but next time I´ll defintely wear a sturdy pair of walking shoes. ;)
So what have you been doing lately?
PS: This was a scheduled post just before I went to Italy. I´m posting this now because it´s getting stale and we don´t want that, don´t we?;)
