It's love

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.

  1. Og nå har du lært at du ikke skal høre på andre når det gjelder å ta valg som angår deg selv ;-) Du drømte om Barcelona, men valgte et annet sted fordi du hørte på andre, men ble ikke helt fornøyd med valget likevel. Og nå når du er i Barcelona så høres det ut som du har det perfekt! Så der ser du. Det er du som kan ta de beste valgene for deg selv.... Kos deg i Barcelona!

  2. Ja, jeg hadde mest lyst på Barcelona i utgangspunktet men siden jeg aldri hadde vært der og det var så mange meninger rundt det at det er tospråklig så trodde jeg at jeg burde høre på "kloke råd".
    Nå gjenstår det å se da, om det er et problem eller ei, men i mellomtida så bare koser jeg meg! :)
