This summer my personal circumstances prevented me from traveling abroad, but I don't think it's the end of the world so I decided to become a tourist in my own city. What's best about summer here is that the streets are deserted because there is no one in summer and therefore it is very easy to park. I'm going to avoid so many bad moments! It had been a while that I haven't felt so relaxed visiting museums that are usually packed, and strolling through the centre without haste. This thing about enjoying the city during the holidays is not bad at all. Maybe I'll do it again next year!
