I have just been here for a week but there’s no doubt in my mind that this is my city. Malaga was great, it’s a city that has everything… But I didn’t fall in love. Although I thought at the time that it couldn't get much better, Barcelona has surprised me! Barcelona definitely is the... ehm …city of my life! Or something like that. Yes, it’s official, I am in LOVE. With capital letters. Every minute I spend out in the streets is like a breath of fresh air, I have so much energy and I feel so alive! And I feel happy that I am here, that I took the leap and just did it. So many people have said to me “Aw, you are so lucky/blessed/fortunate to be doing what you’re doing”. I don't think it’s got to do with luck. I am here because I wanted to do something different with my life. I wanted something new and exciting, and instead of dreaming about it my whole life I just went and did it. And I don’t regret it for a second. Who knows how long my adventure will last, but that’s not important. What’s important is that I am loving what I am doing, and I am happy!
The city is full of beautiful things to look at, buildings, plazas, parks, streets. Something as simple as a lamp-post can be made so beautifully!
Tomorrow my new Spanish course starts, I am excited to resume my studies and improve my Spanish. Another four weeks booked with 5 hours a day.
