As I have told you many times I have been travelling around the world quite a bit with my parents but I have been visiting my new city only in a few occasions. When Chairoko and Kiiroko arrived to my home things got a little better but still almost every month we were travelling out of the town.

Today it’s a Major festivity in Barcelona “La Merce”

From the official website

“Every year, around the 24th September, Barcelona bids farewell
to the summer with its Festival celebrations. This year’s
programme includes more than 600 events, which will take place
in just four days.

An explosive programme where tradition – giants, dragons,
human castles – lives side by side with the most
contemporary artistic offerings: independent music, street
theatre, all kinds of public participation.”

Unfortunately I am very busy with a new business I have decided to create with Chairoko and Kiiroko but our new friend from Japan, Melanie has just arrived and we were impatient to show her Barcelona

Draculina , who never regrets to go out and to party, proposed to take her friends – Chairoko and Kiiroko as well as her new friend, Melanie – to taste the Merce 2008.

Mother Bunny accepted that Draculina takes out her friends , but not overnight. So, they got up quite early today and they took the bikes to have a look at the different events in the city. They went to “ Parc Ciutadella “, where a few events for small kids were going on, and then directly to the beach. They had a stop in front of the Hotel Arts, Draculina´ s recommendation for Chairoko and Kiiroko´s parents. Then, they went to beach. Draculina wants to get suntanned, actually, she wants to be as dark as her new friend Melanie.


They also had a look at a huge paella, which was being cooked on the street.

Chairoko and Kiiroko said “what a pity that our parents were not here to taste Paella too”

Draculina had a short bath and then they all ate paella while me –at home- was thinking about how to solve the Paella problem.

Chairoko and Kiiroko at “Mercado de las Dalias”
This was our song during past weekend. In my previous visit to this island with Mother Bunny I learnt about its magnificent history and I enjoyed places, colours, people, and hotels, everything a nice island can offer you.

But when you have to deal with an angry Father Bunny who hates crowds, but still has a will to go there, because he was evil during sonar festival – and when you play evil whilst in a bunny relationship sure you’ll pay- things surely will go in the wrong way.

And so they went: plenty of people, outrageous prices, the biggest rip-offs on earth, and rude people in our hotel.

Anyways Draculina – who got a severe punishment from Mother Bunny, cause her sonar party- Chairoko and Kiiroko and me did enjoy a lot our weekend in the white island. And, still the inner part has the old charm that Ibiza had in the old times.

Holy bunny, all those vessels are willing for a real crew



Sailing till sunset

Chairoko and Kiiroko enjoyed their first
journey in a racing siling boat (Beneteau First)

Kiiroko did it real god with our genoa sail.

Coming back to our base we saw this magnificent sunset

Back from NY, Boston and Cape Cod, Miffa did not feel like staying at Brcelona. She decided to go sailing .She loves to feel the wind touching lightly her nice ears. This time she wanted to show to Chairoko and Kiiroko, how you sail in a nice boat prepared for regatta.

Only the three of them together with Father Bunny were sailing the whole day till dawn.
Miffa´s Japanese friends are becoming familiar with the art of sailing and learning the first Spanish words in order to help Miffa sailing. However, they do not still dare to touch the rudder wheel. Well, Miffa is in charge of it and protects Chairoko and Kiiroko.

Google Earth track From Boston to Orleans
While in New York we asked Father Bunny to visit another places close to the Big Apple. Too many days in such a busy city were stressing us and I really wanted to visit Boston.

I must admit that we were very lucky. We arrived NY during their Memorials Day and many people went out off the city (mainly to the beach) to celebrate the three days weekend. Walking along NYC center (what they call Midtown) was great. Just only a few impenitent tourists who woke up early to defy the high temperatures.

And wait a moment if we were going to visit Boston what about a nice stop in that Peninsula were old wealthy families has built nice houses I private islands. One of them the Forbes family used the money they got trading with Opium and built and nice house…

Yes I am talking to one of east coast favourite’s tourist attraction: Cape Cod (Apart from Miami, of course)

Getting there from Boston or New York is easy but expect big jams during Fridays and Sundays (back home).It will take you about three and a half hours to get Princetown (the most remote city on the Peninsula’s tip). But if you are not in a hurry our advice will be that it will be a good idea to visit some of the little and no so little places that are in your way to Princetown.

As the great planner that my Father is we departed from Boston at 7:00 pm and we ended reading free tourist guides that we found in a gas station. Chairoko, Kiiroko and I were not very happy about sleeping inside the car or going back to NYC.

But finally in a town called Orleans we found a nice place, actually a beautiful place called Orleans Inn. Its owner Ed, whose family bought and restored the building, is one of the nicer persons we have found in our travels. He gave us very useful information to maximize our travel experience in such a few time and gave us a book with all the building history though time.

Beautiful sandy beaches, nice green fields, nice lighthouses that are still in use, great food, nice wooden houses painted in nice colours… Definitely this is a place to visit and to stay some days if you suffer from any kind of stress.

we spent a great time visiting Orleans Inn
