The move「引っ越すところ」

Move man, sounds easier than it is.

First, try to find a nice rental apartment in Spain. The country where renting is nearly embarrassing. People would rather have empty apartments than renting them out because morel often than not, places get destroyed. As no decent person with a reasonable salary would rent. They'll buy instead.

Second, get all your furniture delivered from Tokyo. This is very nice, as humans are cat-like and love the feeling of "known items". To fit it into a very different space is another story. Much worse is to realize the lack of basics e.g. bathroom mirror, wardrobe shelves and drawers. Visit IKEA, three times in less than 5 days. Work everyday, till 6 at the office and till 10 at the flat. Repeat.

Kudasai, he also made it safe and sound!

It took a week of nearly sleepless nights, bruises and long walks carrying heavy things back and forth (for those living in central Malaga, car is NOT an option to carry stuff). We even ended up with a ladder on top of a table (DO NOT TRY THIS HOME) to reach the ceiling. Never mind. It's now done. We couldn't be happier.

I promise to post a proper video, for our friends to see their friend "the purple sofa" in Spain, but I'll do it once everything is cleaned up. If you are curious about our past homes, here they are:
- Our home in Södermalm, Stockholm [2009-2011].
- Our home in Daikanyama, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo [2011-2014].

This is fresh start for us, so happy week everyone (=^ * ^=)

Tengo ganas de ver más cosas de tu casa... tiene muy buena pinta, con esa luz...
Yo acabo de empezar la ardua tarea de buscar piso, y por ende, ir picando cosas de aquí y allí para un ajuar un poco freak que voy teniendo, compuesto por muebles viejos que he comprado, un par de trapos de cocina que se me antojaron, tazas de viajes... en fin. Veremos qué pasa cuando lo ponga todo junto :P

"buscar piso" para comprar o para alquilar? Me da la sensación de que alquilar algo chulo es bastante más complicado que comprarlo... O reformarlo a tu gusto, pero vamos, qué te voy a contar!

Mi amigo se dedicaba (aparte de hacer tocados y hacer el styling de algunas revistas de moda) a reciclar muebles antiguos. Tapizar, poner pan de oro, cosas así... Yo lo admiro, porque soy bastante manos de árbol jejeje

Creo que somos muchos los que tenemos ganas de ver TU casa XD como decía antes, para comprobar como las inspiraciones se aplican a un hogar español de verdad :)

Ánimo con la mudanza, que es una etapa dura en una pareja... Como nos recordó el cura ayer.

Yo también soy mano-muñón. Efectividad, la que quieras, pero como artesana me moriría de hambre.

Mi casa va a ser un hogar español real, como tu dices... ni suelos de microcemento, ni espacios enormes, ni ventanales, porque de momento, es de alquiler, hasta que aplique en mi lo que me tiro el día haciendo para otros; reformar!.

Ya te iré contando. De momento estamos en la primera criba.
