Tarragona

Another weekend, another beach day! I swear I do my studying during the week, so I have the weekend to enjoy myself and the increasingly brilliant weather here in Catalonia. This past weekend we travelled 1 1/2 hours by train to Tarragona (about 16/17 euros return from Barcelona). Trains are not very frequent compared to Sitges so [...]

Sitges

Now the weather is much improving in already sunny Spain, friends and myself decided to take a day trip to the nearby town of Sitges, only a 30 minute train journey from Barcelona, less than 10 euros return.

Geneva, Switzerland

When a friend asked me if I wanted to accompany her to a weekend in Geneva, how could I say no? I had never been before but I had been told Switzerland is insanely beautiful. So the day after we got back from Sevilla we met again in the airport, for a new adventure. Although cold enough [...]

Although some people may think it pointless to protest when Trump is legitimate, but to me and others democracy is not about voting once every few years [...]

Parc Guell Revisited

I did a post on Parc Guell a while back when I visited Barcelona for the first time. This time around a friend and I went to take pictures, because he had just bought himself a new camera, and I'm glad to have friends who are also into photography. We missed out the section you have to [...]

Fira de Santa Lucia

Me encanta Navidad!! Christmas is the best, I love the decorations, the festive atmosphere, the excuse to warm up with mulled wine, and how everything seems a lot more cheerful (dreading the cold days of January and February without the festivities to keep me in a good mood...) And one of the best things about [...]
