Jagged mountain

July 7th, 2014 · 2 responses · Tags: ·


Monserrat is considered by many a mythical mountain. Possibly because it’s believed to hold the Holy Grail, or maybe it’s the shear magnitude of the landscape around the abbey built on top, 720 meters above sea level.

The rocky formation harshly bursts out of the ground in an otherwise pretty flat terrain, which, given its dimension, has the power to diminish and belittle anything around it, a place where nature and holiness come together.

Sony RX1 Reviewed

We got to live together in a beautiful, typical Key West house for an entire week thanks to Automattic. We had such an amazing time topped with the best food (props to the chefs!).

Oh, did I mention we’re hiring? :)

Sintra is a small village just 30 minutes from home and despite the flocks of people that visit during the weekend, it has a large enough forest area around that you can relax and take in the view. Makes it the perfect spot to hike while bathing our eyes in some majorly beautiful scenery from up above.

Our plan was to make it across to a popular hiking spot but the weather in previous weeks left the secondary roads unsafe to drive on, to say the least, so we parked the vehicle and hiked through a random path we found. Sintra is full of surprises, so any path is a safe bet. Unless you go after the sun has set. Akira enjoyed the walk the most and, as usual, was tired for a full day after that.
