My Flash Talk!

Required of all new Automattic employees, is a 4-minute or less, Flash-talk. I gave mine in early October, at the Grand Meetup in Orlando, Florida. 

That talk has just been uploaded, and I am now happy to share it with you! My topic was a shoutout to my adopted home, the Basque Country.

What’s the difference between a ‘Pintxo’ and a ‘Tapa’ ?

I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think 😜

Relax at the beach!

After works, what better way to what better way to wind-down than a bike ride to the beach? We are so lucky that this place is 15 minutes away!

There’s a steep hill to go down to get to this beach, and it wasn’t the nicest of days, but I almost like it better this way, that way not as many people show up and we had almost the whole beach to ourselves!

Snowmageddon Bilbao 2018

Surprise!

I woke up this morning to a surprising, very unexpected white Bilbao! There was talk yesterday about this happening overnight but I distinctly remember saying, "Lo creeré cuando lo vea," or "I'll believe it when I see it." Well, I believe you mother nature, you're capable of dusting Bilbao with snow.

People out in the streets seemed nervous and determined to get to work. They clearly don't know how to handle a snow day. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the snow this only happens once every 50 years here! Don't waste it stopped in traffic, or at a bus stop, waiting for a bus that will never come. 

I was lucky, my morning classes were cancelled at 6:30am and I was able to watch the sunrise from a nearby park.
