Kiss Me Baby

A French Kiss, Butterfly Kiss, Earlobe Kiss, Cheek Kiss, Eskimo Kiss, Forehead Kiss, Hand Kiss, Finger Kiss, the list there’s no end. When comes to kissing we explore all our creativity. It makes us fly, crawl, sweat, dream, go mad, happy, and we can not help to want more.

You wake in a middle of a cold winter night cover in sweat, breathless and agitated.

What happened? You dreamed with the most warm, long, intense, tasty and wild French Kiss with your date. You never wished so much a dream to come true as this. You try to sleep again, but your efforts are in vain. You are too excited to sleep. That kiss is torturing every molecule of your been.

What tortures you? Perhaps, the wish for that relaxing felling that reduce stress, low cholesterol levels, benefit the heart and burn until tree calories a minute. Knowing that it prevents baggy cheeks, smooth the skin and increases the circulation, must also torture you. The apse of torture you live to the thought of what can come after kissing.

At this point, you are already awake, and there’s nothing else to do just keeping torturing yourself with suggestive thoughts. Lying in your burning bed, eyes closed, there is nothing you can do, just travel to the fantasy word. The palm hands seem so pretty, the back of a neck flagrantly and the chin tasty.

You wonder what is the secret behind it. Why it makes, fell so good, right and irresistible? Science is also trying to answer your question and thousands of songs had been written to celebrate it. It fells good because it is the love proclamation, the ego satisfaction, the exercise of desire, the chemical perfect result and the temptation symbol.

The sun is rising now, but you do not want to get down of the plane. You still want to keep in the air, flying in the imagination of soft, and warm lips. Lips, that would take you to the wonderful desire world. A world where the kiss has a soul ice-cream flavour.

Soon the alarm will ring, but all you want is to live in the roof of the mouth, linked in the tongue and rest in the lips. The last thing you need now is a reality wake up call.

Before the reality call, you still have a miracle moment to dance in the knowledge that what you want in a bed not far away someone want it too. You open your eyes, smile to the clock, greets the day, sure to walk straight to only one reality. You know that is going to be a long day, and you can not help to say: kiss me.

Greeting and Kissing in Spanish Speaking Countries

Are you heading to Spain in the summer or do you want to travel Latin America this year? Have you ever been wondering if they have different rules for greeting and kissing? Be warned, the interaction between men and women is very different than in most other countries in the world! But don’t worry, with these guidelines you will be prepared for every situation.

In general, physical contact is much more common in Spanish cultures than for example in the Northern countries of Europe or in the United States. People have an open, warm and flirtatious way of conversing.
Spaniards generally stand at a much closer physical distance when they talk to each other than foreigners are used to. This doesn’t necessarily mean anything but if the Spanish culture is completely new to you, you might be confused in the beginning and find it a bit difficult to read the signs of the opposite sex.

In Latin America and Spain men and woman greet each other with “besitos” meaning they briefly touch the cheeks and make a kissing sound with their lips. It doesn’t matter if they are good friends or if they are meeting for the first time, the cheek kissing is a universal form of greeting. These little kisses are purely friendly and have no sexual meaning. In the Spanish culture they are considered more as a formality then an attempt to flirt. Wherever you will go make sure to kiss the right cheek first, as this will help you to not hurting someone accidentally.

Generally both men and women enjoy each other’s company and flirting is a natural way of communicating with each other. This attitude has to be considered as a part of Spanish nature and you can see it within every age group. A couple kissing in public is quite often seen in Spain but less common in some parts of Latin America where you can still find traditional catholic customs.

When a pretty woman is passing by on the street, men will most likely compliment her or might even whistle at her. These flirtatious comments are called “piropos” and include usually a simple “guapa” (meaning beautiful) or “mi amor” (my love). The woman should not acknowledge the compliment and should try to keep a straight face in order not to encourage the men. These comments are harmless and happen a million times per day on pretty much every street corner in Spain or Latin America. Traditionally known for their macho behavior Spanish men simply express their admiration for women by acting that way.

ยกMucha suerte!

Travel Through Europe With a Click of a Button

My favorite movies make me travel through Europe in an instant. When I’m in the mood to have a few days off but I can’t due to a million obligations, I settle for the next best thing – picking a DVD and clicking on “play.”

The Sound of Music
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

One of my favorite movies is The Sound of Music. I NEVER get tired of watching every scene! Oh alright, when I was younger, I’d always skip the “Climb Every Mountain” portion but I’ve learned to appreciate it now ๐Ÿ™‚

All of the movie’s locations leave me breathless starting with the opening scene. Ahh, Salzburg is simply magnificent! The Mirabell Gardens, the snow-capped mountains, Baroque Churches plus the songs never cease to mesmerize me. By the end of the movie, I’m in the mood to rip down our curtains, sew me a dress and hop on the next flight to Austria and from there, travel through Europe!

Roman Holiday
“Each, in its own way, was unforgettable. It would be difficult to – Rome! By all means, Rome. I will cherish my visit here in memory as long as I live.”

When I’m in the mood for Rome, I think of Roman Holiday. I’ve seen it a few times and I just love the way the characters and the city itself make me want to return to Rome.

The movie highlighted the Spanish Steps and the Boca da Verita. Wasn’t that scene so adorable? Dating couples don’t behave like that anymore. Everytime I travel through Europe and arrive in Rome, I always tell myself to visit the Mouth of Truth but when I get there, I back out due to the long line of art lovers and Roman Holiday fans. ๐Ÿ™‚ Ah, maybe someday soon.

Notting Hill
“I live in Notting Hill. You live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are, my mother has trouble remembering my name.”

“I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”

I’ve been to London several times but I’ve never been to Notting Hill. I love this movie! Again, it’s not just the characters but also the location that makes me wonder what it’s really like at Notting Hill.

Whenever I visit London, I make it a point to go to bookstores, specially the small, quirky ones just like William Thacker (Hugh Grant’s character) had. I also love the park scene where Hugh Grant says, “whoopsiedaisies.” Not to mention the bench (I wonder if it really exists)! Anyway, I went out and bought a bench because of Notting Hill! So, if you want to get into the London spirit, watch this movie… again ๐Ÿ™‚

French Kiss
“You are not afraid to fly any more? You are thinking of your little stone cottage?”

“It’s on a hillside next to a beautiful vineyard. But that’s not really what I’m thinking about.”

Even if French Kiss isn’t a classic (to my standards) compared to the first three movies I mentioned this week, I still love the movie because it transports me to France. Paris and the French countryside, c’est magnifique (pardon my French spelling, I’m not really sure of it).

Alright, there were moments when I thought Kevin Kline exaggerated his French accent but this is a comedy and don’t we just love trying to speak French? The scenes of the countryside and the family celebration makes you want to go to France not only to enjoy the views but also celebrate the way the French do. After all, life is a celebration!

After that much needed 2-hour break where you travel through Europe, you’re feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your obligations with a smile on your face. You’ve booked the real thing anyway, and pretty soon, actually living it up in Europe.

Kissing the Blarney Stone

The Blarney Castle, with its battlemented keep and ruined towers, situated 5 miles north of Cork, Ireland, is the most visited castle. This castle was erected in 1446 by Dermot McCarthy, who was the local lord at that time. Apart from the grandeur of this castle sitting on the gracious parkland, the focal point of the castle is the legendary Blarney Stone. Many people from all over the world flock to see this legendary stone. Legend has it that by kissing the stone, this gesture will confer a magical eloquence.

The Blarney Stone is located in the wall below the castle battlements. In order to reach the stone, you need to climb 127 steps to the top of the battlement keep. It is not easy task to kiss the stone. In order to kiss the stone, your hands have to grab hold of the vertical iron rails and someone has to hold you by your feet. You will be suspended backward under the parapet. At this awkward position, you can then kiss the stone. Even though it is not easy to kiss the stone, many people have flocked to this place to do it in order to try its efficacy.

The tradition is said to have originated from a comment made by Queen Elizabeth I of England. Lord Dermot McCarthy had attempted to overwhelm her with his non-stop chatter and verbosity in order to prevent her from taking his estate. The Queen is said to have despaired and made a comment which was believed to have started the tradition. The word “blarney” means cajoling talk or flattery.

Today, little remains of the castle except the keep. Its design and style is typical of a 15th century tower house. Tower houses are small castles or fortified residences built between the 15th and 17th centuries. You can enjoy some walks at the castle grounds and view yew trees and limestone rock formations.

You can choose to have a drink or do some shopping at a village nearby which is only a short walk from the castle. In the village, there are a number of crafts shops and some pubs. You can also visit the Blarney Woollen Mills which sells quality garments and souvenirs.

Blarney Castle is indeed a wonderful place to visit. If you are keen to take a vacation trip and looks forward to some adventure and excitement, you can consider visiting the Blarney Castle. When you are there, perhaps, you would want to kiss the Blarney Stone and prove its efficacy? More information can be found at Cheap Flights website.
