Top 10 Songs for the Summer

Last week I had my last exam and yesterday was my last day of classes, that means summer is finally here! Last night I was so excited that I created my ultimate Summer playlist on my iTunes and decided to show my top 10 songs for the Summer!

These songs are not necessarily Summer hits, they’re songs I like to listen to when I have my Summer mode on, at the beach, laying by the pool… Luckily for me I live in an island, that means I get to go to the beach whenever I want, and now that I’m totally free I’ll try to go as much as possible. Here’s one of my favorite beaches in the south of Gran Canaria, it’s called El Cochino and though sometimes it’s a little windy, I love it!

I usually go every other weekend to my grandma’s holiday house in the countryside. When I was a kid I used to spend the whole Summer there while my mom was working, but now I go when the weather is good to spend time with the family at the pool.

Anyway, I’ll stop talking about me and start talking about the songs that I picked for this list. Here are my Top 10 songs for the Summer! Find out below:

Top 10 Universal Studios Orlando Rides

Hello everyone! I know I’ve been out for a long time, but I’ve been very busy with my classes and I also bought the new Pokemon game last week and I’ve been spending my little free time playing.

Anyways, a few weeks ago I posted my Top 10 Walt Disney World rides and promised I’d do a Top 10 Universal Studios rides soon, so here are them!

IOA_Header_tcm13-10617

I’m choosing rides from both Universal Studios and Islands Of Adventure theme parks, including all of the different islands from the second park, that means there’s going to be a lot of Harry Potter here!!

Like I did in the Disney World post, I’m going to describe my experience at Universal Orlando.

First time I was there I was 9 years old and again, I didn’t take any ride because I was scared. Last year with 21 years old I went again and had the time of my life! The difference with Disney parks is that it’s more focused on the Roller Coasters and the adrenaline part of the theme parks more than to enjoy yourself and letting your inner child live for a few days.

This time The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter was added as one of the islands from Islands Of Adventure and that’s what I enjoyed the most along with the Marvel Superhero Island.

I also loved The Simpsons zone they’re building at Universal Studios, but it wasn’t finished yet. The only thing that I didn’t like is that they closed the JAWS ride, which I was dying to take since I didn’t when I was a kid. so lets have it as a honorable mention. I saw the video my uncle took in the ride when I was little and it was so good.

So let’s begin with the list! Find out below:

Top 10 Walt Disney World Rides

This morning I was feeling a little nostalgic and I decided to take a look at my last year’s Walt Disney World photos. It was the second time I’ve been there, first time was in 2001 when I was 9 years old.

It was very different from the first time, they had this New Fantasyland, which I fell in love with, but where I noticed the most differences was in the merchandising and stuff they sell now. Back in 2001 they had everything from every Disney movie and now they only have stuff from the new movies, Pixar movies and Disney Channel shows.

What I didn’t like at all was that they didn’t have any The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas or Sleeping Beauty merchandising, they only had Disney Princess stuff and everything was pink or sparkly, I could only get an Ariel keyring, but it was sparkly…

Anyways, I did have a great time because I could enjoy all the rides that I was afraid as a kid and the new ones they have. So here’re my Top 10 Walt Disney World rides from the four Disney Parks: Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom and Epcot. Find out below:

Top 10 Places I’ve Visited

One of the things I love the most is traveling. Luckily I can say I’ve visited lots of cities and countries and I’ve fallen in love with many places I’ve been to. Still there are many places I wish I’ll be able to visit in the future.

Here are my Top10 favorite places I’ve been to!

10. Ibiza (2009/2012)

I have a friend who’s father is from Ibiza and they have a house there. First time I was there I was still 17 and none of my friends could drive so we didn’t do much. We stayed in the pool and went to the beach next to my friend’s house (picture below). Next time, was two summers ago and we did lots of different things because we had a car. We visited many different and very beautiful beaches, snorkeled , sailed to Formentera and party a lot. I’m not that party loving guy, so what made me fall in love with the island was how beautiful and relaxing it is.

9. Budapest (2006)

I went to Budapest with my mom and my grandma when I was 15. It was one of those organized trips so we couldn’t enjoy much of the city by ourselves, but still I fell in love with it. It’s one of the most beautiful cities I’ve been to and the Parliament is really amazing. My mom is going again next month, I wish I went with her!!

8. Prague (2006/2009)

I visited Prague for the first time in the same trip I visited Budapest. I didn’t like it much because we were exhausted from the trip and the organization wasn’t very good. I visited the city again when I did the Inter-Rail with my friends when I finished high school. The Inter-Rail is a trip for young people and consists in a train ticket for 22 days and you can take as many trains as you wish in those days for one price. You can see many European cities and stay in hostels, meet people and walk A LOT!

This time around I fell in love with the city. It rained a lot, but I still enjoy the city as much as I could and I found it very beautiful.

7. Berlin (2009)

I visited Berlin with the Inter-Rail too. We saw a lot in only two days and I loved everything! It’s a very beautiful city and I loved the atmosphere. My friends had been there before so we went to the most important places only. I have to visit again for sure!

6. Washington DC (2010)

I was in Washington only for one day, but I loved it!! I was there the 4th of July and got to see the fireworks! It was an amazing experience. I loved everything about the city, the Lincoln Memorial, the Capitol, the White House and of course the Smithsonian. That’s one of my favorite museums that I’ve visited.

5. Rome (2009/2012)

Rome was the last city we visited with the Inter-Rail and we stayed like 5 days, more than in any other city. I loved it! There are many things to see and I love that everything is near. Next time I was in Rome was only for one day on a Mediterranean Cruise two years ago. I didn’t get to see anything new, because I saw almost everything the first time, but I loved to be back there!

Fontana-di-trevi

4. Paris (2004/2009)

I visited Paris for the first time when I was 13 with my mom and my grandma and later we went to Disneyland with my uncles and little cousins. I love traveling with my mom because she studies a lot about the places we’ll visit and we do many cool stuff! Next time I was there was with the Inter-Rail and we only got two days to see the city. We couldn’t see the museums, but we walked a lot to see as much as possible. I love Paris, but it truly is a very expensive city!

3. London (2008/2010/2011/2013)

London is the city I’ve visited the most! I was there on holiday with my mom in 2008 and then again in 2010 and we got to see many things of this amazing city, but it wasn’t until 2011 that I fell completely in love with it. I lived there for 4 month and got to really know the place. Last year I went back to meet with the people I studied with and we did many of the things we used to do while we lived there together!

2. Walt Disney World/Universal Studios – Orlando (2001/2013)

I may be 22 years old, but I’m still a child. I was in Disney World with my family when I was 9 and it was like the best place I ever went to!! I always wished I could go back and really enjoy it, because the first time I was afraid of roller coasters and didn’t take any cool ride. Last year my dreams came true and I went back!! I was there with my mom and some friends and I had the time of my life! I got lots of autographs from Disney characters and took every ride. I especially loved Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland with The Little Mermaid’s and Beauty And The Beast’s areas.

I also loved the Universal Studios and I totally freak out in the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter area of the Islands Of Adventure!! I was very mad that they closed the Jaws ride though!!

I’d totally go back again!!Such a cool place to be.

1. New York City (2010)

Finally my favorite place in the world is New York City!! I was there with two friends of mine back in 2010 and I might visit this amazing city again with my mom later this year!! I loved everything about NY, I always thought it was the coolest place in the world and it didn’t disappoint! Really, one of the best experiences I’ve had was watching the view of the city on top of the Rockefeller Center! AMAZING!!

Lisbon + The Mrs. Carter Show 2014

I just came back from Lisbon. I was there only for three days, but me and my friends tried to see as much as we could! We arrived at Lisbon on Wednesday at night, so we went directly to the hostel we had booked. We stayed at the Oasis Backpackers Mansion, which I highly recommend! It is a really good place to stay and the staff members are very nice.
