"'Twas the night before Lent, and all throughout Sitges, every creature was stirring, throwing glitter on beaches. Not a child was safe at home or in bed, for all the parents had lost their damned heads." If Clement Clarke Moore had to write a poem about Carnaval I’m almost certain it’d have gone something like … Continue reading Carnaval in Sitges
Today Lisa (our new flatmate), Fernweh, and I took an adventure to Bunkers del Carmel, a large hill offering amazing views of the whole of Barcelona that rival the famed panoramas at Montjuïc, Park Güell, and Tibidabo. The bunker, which used to be an AA-station during World War II, resides in the El Carmel district … Continue reading Bunkers del Carmel
I used to think that George Ezra’s song about giving up all his treasures, land, and belongings in Budapest to run after some unknown lover was romantic. I still think it’s romantic, but I also think he’s a bit crazy. Having visited Budapest for a few days, I think I’d find a way to convince … Continue reading Budapest, Hungary
Bonus points to whoever got that reference. In-flight, in-train, or in-car entertainment is a big deal for me. I’m, unfortunately, not one of those people who can sleep anywhere, unlike Food, so I end up with my shoulder as a makeshift pillow while I juggle my 4+ tech devices to see which one will keep … Continue reading Are You Not Entertained?
Throwing it back to November. I swear I wrote this back then - and edited out some of the sass more recently - but again, not apologizing. Anyways, as Audrey says "By all means, Rome. I will cherish my visit here in memory as long as I live." We woke up early to make it … Continue reading Rome, Italy //Day 2
Whew! It’s been two months since I’ve posted anything and it’s been a whirlwind of a time. More stuff has gone on than you can possibly know, and so, while I’d apologize for my absence under normal circumstances, I’m not going to. Food and I have moved flats after having difficulty with water damage and … Continue reading 24 Hours in Berlin
Our flight from Barcelona to Rome was early, and while Food and I prefer sunsets to sunrises, we somehow made it to the airport and through the hazardous situation that is security and weren’t late. After making it to the hotel, dumping all our belongings in various places in the room and taking the briefest … Continue reading Rome, Italy //Day 1
Our last stop on our two-week long adventure was Cagliari, Italy. Honestly, out of all the cities we ported at; Cagliari was the least planned for and likely the least thought about. But now, after being back in Barcelona and reminiscing on the memories; some of the fondest came from Cagliari and the sweet people we … Continue reading Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy
We went diving in Crete and, per the usual, hilarity ensued.
Hello and hola are essentially interchangeable, but also lead to awkward situations. Our neighbor is a Spanish deity and my brain shorted due to being in close proximity.
