El finde

¡Hola chicos!

This weekend I had some serious shopping! I have been six months shopping free ( if we don't count the shoes that I bought in Helsinki ), but otherwise that's a huge thing for me believe it or not! I have been saving all my money, but the other day I thought...what the hell, life is too short! It actually felt pretty good to get something new, now I know what they mean by shopping therapy :D

Also I couldn't resist buying some sweets here. I don't think my friends and family are going to recognize me when I go back home, but food is way too good and I want to try everything!
 There are many musicians playing on the road, but I have no idea how they got the piano there...quite challenging I must say!
 For the first time I tried macaroons...mmmm me likes! :D
 I really love the area around the cathedral! Today they had an event and it was full of these small tents where they had wine tasting and traditional spanish food...uuuuu!
 Giovanni ice cream...not very spanish, but who cares! It was the best ice cream I have ever had :D 
 I always forget how you call these birds in english -_- I guess that's their meeting point or something hehe
Yesterday I went to watch one of the greatest shows so was called El despertar de casa Batllo and they were celebrating 10 years of cultural visits. It showed how Gaudi was inspired to built casa here is a video that I found on youtube! I took one too but I had a stupid tree in front of me, but this one is a bit better so you can get an idea of how it was like!
I guess that was it for tonight! Life is going very well here...especially now that I am not sick anymore (wohooo!) :)
¡Hasta luego!


  1. Happy to hear you are not sick anymore and could enjoy your weekend! Life seems pretty interesting there, so many things to see and to do.

    Actually I was thinking that in our hometowns there may be many things that we haven't seen because they are always there and we don't bother taking the time. As a short-time visitor you may see much more than the locals have seen in years.

    1. That's so true! I have never thought about it that way, but you are right. You never know what you might find in your hometown...usually people just like to go to the same places and don't bother to try something new.

  2. What's the orange "ball" on one window of the cathedral? It's no symmetrically in the middle, so it doesn't seem like a decoration. Just curious...

    1. I noticed it!The sun was shining at that angle and I don't know how, but now there is this orange ball on the cathedral's window...hups! I am a great photographer :D
