¡Hola a todos! ¡Espero que hayáis tenido un buen comienzo de año! Yo no podía empezar el año mejor, gracias al premio Versatile Blogger Award que me han concedido Urška y Matic del blog Sliva. Si os interesan las actividades al aire libre y sois aventureros, seguro que encontráis información muy útil en su blog! Para aceptar el premio tengo que escribir un post contando siete cosas sobre mi y nominar a 15 de mis bloggers preferidos. Así que, aquí van las siete cosas sobre mí y 15 blogs que os van a encantar!







7 things about me:

1. Midori is the name of my favorite character from Murakami (Tokyo Blues) and Mori a last name that I chose for its sonority: Midori Mori, I love how it sounds. The best was when I was in Japan and I was told that it means Green Forrest. It love it! And yes, I am very fan of Murakami.
2. At age 13 I fell in love with Lord Byron and I have never been able to get over him.
3. I am a true fan of Bon Jovi. I've never dedicated them a post, but I always find an excuse to share a photo or video of them on my networks.
4. I am from San Sebastian. Many people say that it is the most beautiful city in Spain and everyone agrees that our gastronomy is to die for.
5. I'm crazy about music and I've always been a true groupie. Luckily, my boyfriend is the singer of a rock band, The Last 3 Lines (follow them on all their networks!)
6. I'm obsessed with vampires, especially those of Anne Rice. They are such a passionate and visceral beings that turn everything very romantic.
7. My great dream is to travel for three months through Russia, Mongolia and China using the Trans-Siberian and the Trans-Mongolian.


7 cosas sobre mi:

1. Midori es el nombre de mi personaje favorito de Murakami (Tokyo Blues) y Mori un apellido que escogí por su sonoridad: Midori Mori, me encanta como suena. Lo mejor de todo es que, cuando estuve en Japón, me dijeron que significa Bosque Verde. ¡Me alucina! Y sí, soy muy fan de Murakami.
2. A los 13 años me enamoré de Lord Byron y nunca le he podido olvidar.
3. Soy una auténtica fan de Bon Jovi. Nunca le he dedicado un post, pero siempre encuentro una excusa para compartir una foto o video suyo en mis redes.
4. Soy de San Sebastián. Mucha gente dice que es la ciudad más bonita de España y todo el mundo está de acuerdo en que nuestra gastronomía es para morirse.
5. Me alucina la música y siempre he sido super groupie. Por suerte, mi novio es el cantante de una banda de rock, The Last 3 Lines (seguidles en todas sus redes!)
6. Me alucinan los vampiros, sobre todo los de Anne Rice. Son unos seres tan pasionales y viscerales que hacen que todo sea muy romántico.
7. Mi gran sueño es viajar durante tres meses por Rusia, Mongolia y China utilizando el transiberiano y el transmongoliano.
