Lockdown Diary – Part 5

First of all, thank you for all the lovely reactions to our first Expat Experiences post! This encourages us to share even more of our life here. By the way, soon we will publish other types of Travel Activities as well, but more about that in another post.

By the way, I didn’t publish any Lockdown Diary last weekend, simply because I didn’t feel like I had anything to say. And when I am not inspired, I refuse to write something bad or mediocre. Anyway, let’s start with some news:

  • From what I gather from various Spanish media, the pandemic seems to have reached its peak here.
  • The lockdown will last until 9 May. The 10th is actually my birthday, but I have no idea how I will be able to celebrate it. One thing is for sure: the exit from this lockdown will be a gradual one.
  • From tomorrow on, children up to the age of 14 will have more freedom. They will be able to spend 1 hour daily outside, with a maximum distance of 1 kilometer from their home; 1 adult can accompany 3 children.

The Viking and I are still going strong. Luckily, we are not easily bored and although we miss our excursions, we can keep ourselves busy. April has been a wet and somber month so far, but when there is a bit of sunshine, we open the big window of our living room and out on the terrace we are! Moreover, there is no more hoarding in our local supermarkets, which enables me to try new recipes. And I have my daily writing and photography projects: check out my Instagram feed, link in the sidebar!

This week I discovered Tubi. It’s much like Netflix and Amazon Prime, except that it’s free! The downside is, it’s only available in America. So, I treated myself to ExpressVPN on Thursday and I am able to watch Tubi anyway… If you are a movie freak like yours truly, I strongly suggest you to check it out. I will share some of the gems that I have discovered so far on my movie website later next week. You can find the link to What Ingrid Watches in my sidebar.

As always, we end with one of our favourite tapas…

Stay safe and stay home!
