Wait… It’s getting cold in Barcelona!?

30 Nov

Sitting here in my small apartment with a glass of rosado from Rioja, freezing my ****! Admitting that it’s getting colder, that the season is about to change… like tomorrow! And also here in Barcelona. This week I have felt that 14ºC can be really cold, tasted REAL Spanish churros, Christmas market, been more aware of how much Spain’s government sucks… and since Christmas is just around the corner and I missed Denmark way too much, I made a little decoration. My first away-from-home-decoration! It’s actually really nice considering that I bought the things to make it at the Chinese in Sants. But it definitely works for me.

But I’ve also realised after some cheap, Spanish chocolate with churros in Barri Gótic that I really have to change my spots once in a while. I just can’t help that I’ve fallen totally for Barri Gótic.

Plaça Catalunya, the weather was awesome but cold!

To get warmed up, I went to Barri Gótic…

Me; that chocolate was just awesome, and with the churros... I have no words, and it was pretty cheap! I'll go to Santa Clara any time!

Dat Churros!

After, I went out.. and guess what I discovered: a Christmas market! I actually didn’t know that there was any of that kind of stuff here, and it isn’t that special if you compares it with the German Christmas markets! But it was nice. (Btw, if you’re round Barcelona this Winter, you’ll now be able to go ice-skating in Plaça Catalunya!)

This made me feel the Christmas spirit which I haven't felt so long..! Nothing special, but nice!

So, it’s just time to get the big coat on, and go out there and enjoy the last month of 2012. Whether you live in Barcelona or another city! You can see more photos from the last week of November!

Take a Break in Park Ciutadella

15 Nov

I spent this afternoon sightseeing in Barcelona on my own. Which is something that I have never done before. Don’t ask me why. The weather in Spain is quite incredible. It’s November, the sun is shining, the sky is blue. And forget all about your big wintercoat. I carry my computer in a bag, which is incredibly heavy and uncomfortable. This time I actually decided to take the Metro, though I didn’t have any idea of where to go. So since I carried my computer, I decided to go to Parc Ciutadella and Arc de Triomf to spent an hour or two in the park. I love the park because of it’s tranquility, like when you enter another world. People who are just taking a break from their busy everydaylife. Though it may sound a bit freaky, I actually like watching other people and think about their differences.

So as said, I went to Parc Ciutadella. And I actually photographed my way to the park. I first went to Plaça Espanya and Mont Juïc though! For more photos follow the link, https://streetsoftrujillo.wordpress.com/photos/
