Magical moments

I had another magical moment this Sunday. I was walking around in the gothic quarter, when some beautiful musical tones captivated me. Like I have said before, music is a big source of energy and inspiration for me and I forget time and place when I come across something truly good. Like this one, a Spanish guitar playing the most enchanting melodies.

The guitar player was sitting just behind the cathedral. In those narrow alleys in between all the historical buildings, the acoustics are amazing. It is a place where masses of people go by constantly, but I stopped and stayed for a good twenty minutes just listening to this wonderful music, not sensing anything else. After some time, I felt it was too rude or something to stay on, so I reluctantly dragged myself away from it as s-l-o-w-l-y as I could so to keep hearing it as long as possible.



Lucky for me, he sold CD’s, and although it’s the first time I have ever bought a CD from a street performer I am so so happy I did! This music has some kind of hypnotic effect on me, truly relaxing!


...so I have learned that I absolutely adore Spanish guitar! I had my first amazing experience in Málaga, and now I had my second one here with Costel, as he calls himself.
I will definitely look out for shows and concerts with this kind of music, I am hooked!

  2. Tusen takk for kos kommentaren på bloggen...jeg ble mest glad for den fordi den førte meg til bloggen din :-)
    Jeg har lest litt i den...kjempekos...
    Skal lese mer i helgen når jeg har litt bedre tid.
    Åååå...bare av de to siste innleggene dine...så kjenner jeg sånn på pulsen at jeg igjen savner å flytte utenlands for noen år...jeg har selv bodde i flere land før jeg fikk barn...og...det gjør virkelig noe med en.
    For noen vakre bilder...nå fikk jeg virkelig lyst på en langweekend i Barcelona...lenge siden sist...
    Hva var grunnen til at du flyttet til Barcelona og...studerer du eller jobber du der...?

  3. Joy: der sa du det! Medisin for sjelen, ahh elsker! Takk :)

    Mette: Åh så koselig en kommentar! Jeg flyttet til Spania simpelthen for å gjøre noe helt nytt og annerledes, og for å lære spansk. Så det er det jeg gjør nå, går på intensivt spansk-kurs og nyter å gjøre meg kjent med kultur og skikker og denne fantastisk flotte byen!

  4. Du er modig! Liker å lese om dette spanske prosjektet, selv om jeg personlig ikke er så glad i spansk gitar. Det kan ha noe å gjøre med tidlig eksponering for denne sangen av Backstreet Boys:
