Five years of wishes!

Yesterday, Lady Nina’s Diaries became 5 years old. It has accompanied my life for a long time now and, even though I didn’t always have the time to write, I have always returned to it. So, today, I want to be the first to wish my blog ‘Happy Birthday’. And I will do it in as many languages as I can, so I am waiting for your contribution for the rest.

So, I am glad to celebrate it with my first post in Spanish – well, it is only a paragraph at the start of the story, but bear with me! And many apologies to the Spanish-speaking in advance, for the mistakes that you most probably will encounter.
