Metastream works really well with streaming and sycning media so you can watch it together. Set up a videocall session with your phone and you are ready to go. You just need Chrome or Firefox (they also offer a desktop version) and this is free to use.
More info here: Metastream.

Works similair like Metastream but is optimized for Netflix, watch together or in groups for free. Sync that movie or series so you will exactly see what your partner is seeing. More info: Netflix party. Some movies won’t be available in your country, but that is just how Netflix works. This won’t change that sadly. Netflix Party only works in Chrome as an extension.

Kast
Another free media sharing service, Kast is now only available as a desktop and IOS program, but a webservice is coming soon. You can start streaming parties just like Metastream and Netflix party and is free to use. Download here: Kast.

Those 3 services are currently one of the best out there so you can watch a movie together with your partner or even a group across the world. Each service has it pro’s and cons and you just need to test yourself how it works for you. I hope this post helps you!

In my last post I wrote about strange Dutch Traditions. In this post I will write about some of the strange Mexican traditions I encountered when I was visiting. Enjoy!

Always denying the sauce is spicy
Mild sauce you say? Not spicy at all! But if you are not used to this you will burn your mouth for sure. Even if you ask the waiter to not make it spicy! Oh and the color of the salsa doesn’t say anything. Green doesn’t mean it isn’t spicy, or is it? Noone knows.

Dia de los muertos
Every year on 2 November this amazing 2 day holiday starts. The Mexicans remember their passed loved ones with a “ofrenda” and celebrate this with a lot of colorful things as well. Very cool way of celebrating the death!

La Quinceanera
Turning 15 not a big deal? Well in Mexico it is! When you turn 15 you should celebrate this big. In Mexico the girls will turn into real princesses for a day. Rent a limousine for a day (or anything else that is fancy) and enjoy this moment. It is basically like a sweet 16, but way more extravagant, traditional and seen as a very important moment in a girls life. Hey you only turn 15 once right?

Arriving late
Mexican time just works a bit different, if you have an appointment at 1pm, a Mexican will probably come at around 1:30pm or even later. Never earlier. So take that in account!

Mexicans love to dance
Mexican culture is full of music and dance, if you think about Mexico you probably think about Mariachi bands. However every Mexican region has their own traditional dance. This is really incredible to see. Anywhere you go they have a completely different dance together with different colorful clothes. For more info, visit this page: Traditional Mexican dances.

That’s it for now, hope you liked this post. Please leave a comment if you have suggestions!

Lake Malawi, Malawi
If you are looking for a place that will bring you peace and romantic beach walks, Lake Malawi is for you.

Last time I wrote about the most romantic places in Europe, now it’s time to gather the places you definitively wants to visit in Canada, the United States and Mexico with your partner for an amazing romantic getaway. For pictures and more other posts please visit pascalandandrea.com

Providence, Rhode Island, USA
Known as the most beautiful small city of the United States, Providence offers amazing strolls, beautiful greenery and fantastic small bars for romantic dinners. Waterplace Park is the backdrop for the WaterFire art installation, which lights up the surrounding tidal basin most nights in the summer and for special events

Providence offers many things to do as well. There is a zoo, the RISD museum ( Rhode Island School of Design) and even a Culinary Arts Museum.

Los Cabos, Mexico
If you like white beaches, still undiscovered nature and secluded bars, then give Los Cabos a try. Los Cabos is an upcoming tourist destination but not that popular yet. Los Cabos are two cities linked together ( Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo).

Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier, Canada
Talking about long names, Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier is only known for one thing, but this is pretty cool. Make sure to cuddle up because it will be cold. This town is known for the world famous Ice hotel (Hotel de Glace Ice Bar). Yes an actual hotel made out of ice. However it is a very seasonal hotel with opening times from January to April.

Guanajuato, Mexico
Known for the alley of the kiss (Callejón del Beso), romantic Mariachi walks in the evening and beautiful views with amazing architecture, Guanajuato is super romantic. I have been here myself and this city is a hidden gem of Mexico. The buildings are also very colorful, there is a special elevator that will take you to a hill. Here you have an amazing view over the town.

Charleston, USA
This small city is perfect for romantic getaways. Known for its amazing 1670 style architecture, fantastic beach walk fronts and horse drawn carriages. You will sure have a romantic time here. Charleston also offers a very elegant french quarter.

Quebec City, Canada
Known for its 18th century walls, many candle lit dinner restaurants, and very beautiful stylized houses. Quebec is one of the most romantic cities in Canada. Quebec has many promenades for you to walk hand in hand with your partner. Make sure to also visit the Montmorency Falls!

2020 will start a new decade, where Andrea and I have set a lot of goals for us to be met, in this post I will briefly write about our plans we have made so far.
For more please visit the blog: Pascalandandrea.com

Visiting Mexico for the 5th time
From the 2nd of February until the 16th of the same month, I will finally visit Andrea again. I already got the planetickets and I am very excited to flown down there and hug her very tightly. I can’t believe it is already my 5th time visiting Mexico! I love the country a lot and I hope we can explore the country even more.

New York
I never visited the United States before, therefore I think it would be nice for us to meet in the middle. This saves a lot of time flying and it would be incredible to meet each other in a city we both haven’t visited before for a fun week. We are thinking about doing this in June.

F1 in Mexico City
One of my dreams is to visit a Formula 1 race in real life. Next year F1 is coming to Zandvoort, but that will be crazy (and expensive). What better is to come down to Mexico (for the 6th time) and to watch F1 in Mexico City? Andrea already has an apartment there so that will cut the costs drastically. We only need tickets for the GP of Mexico in November 2020.

Improving my spanish
I already started with a Spanish Course in November this year, and I will continue this through 2020. My goal is to be fluent in Spanish before the end of 2020 and to keep improving during 2021 as well. I think it is already going very well and I speak much better Spanish than before. However I have to keep going at it.

Run at least 900km in 2020
This year I ran more than 250KM already, and I will push for more in 2020. I have several runs lined up and for the first time I will run a 5k race in Dublin in August. I am very excited about this and I will make sure I will finish a 5k under 22 minutes.
