Review: Kinetic Strike (Drop Trooper #2)

I was a little bit skeptical about this second installment of the series. You know it’s not easy to do a continuation of a story and still make it feel fresh, engaging, and so on. I did rate 4 stars for the first space opera book so of course I had to buy this one […]

I had this smash burger the other day, I love smash burgers it’s a great invention. This one was a little bit strange, they did not use the classic butter bun… The middle section became a little soggy too fast, so that wasn’t great. If only they had changed the bun it would’ve been so […]

This week I was invited to the fanciest dinner I’ve had in years 💰 I don’t know about you but I simply don’t enjoy high-end cuisine 🤷‍♂️ First, it hurts to pay triple the price for one-third of the food I’d get somewhere else. But secondly and most importantly, even if I’m not paying my […]

😮 Cheap manga? don’t mind if I do This week I bought the first volume of Naruto, the famous manga/anime for 1,85€. Yes, you read that right, the price of a coffee. Not second-hand but brand new 😱 How is it possible? I don’t understand either 🤷‍♂️ You see, in Spain, the prices of books […]

Here’s a short and strange story on how I got to play Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on launch day. ⏪ Rewind to February 2023 The game listing appeared on Amazon for pre-order, so I did. When you pre-order such things in advance… well… it’s done so you can get in the queue and get […]

🌮🌮🌮 We have been enjoying this little place 10 minutes from home where tacos are cheap, as they should. I’ve been complaining for years that there are no fair-priced Mexican restaurants in Barcelona.In most Mexican restaurants the food is not abundant and it’s quite simple. Like nachos, with cheese, some meat, and guacamole. It’s not […]

It’s been two weeks since I’ve been back from Japan and I’m still adjusting to reality. The reality of walking on dirty streets and feeling the general rudeness, but on the other side the calm of riding an almost empty metro or walking on deserted streets. You can’t have everything. 📚 Manga During my Japan […]
