Do you remember how we have already explained that we live in a former industrial neighborhood? well, fate fairies (or rather that Barcelona has very industrial roots) have made Dani work in another former industrial part of the city called Poble Nou. In fact Poble Nou, as opposite to our neighborhood, is still very much attached to its recent history and there are still lots of warehouses and depots which are just now being repurposed for other business, lofts or replaced for big office buildings.
Last Friday I went to pick up Dani after work with the excuse to discover new parts of the city and have a burger in a new place nearby. I usually lose a little track of where I am in a map when walking around a new area of our city, and then those (magic) surprises happen when I realize that we are in fact near a familiar place. Does that ever happen to you? I am sure I can’t be the only daydream wanderer ;)
The surprise took place after 15 minutes walking when we reached a little park that was precisely just next to the seaside! :) I love to seize every opportunity to be next to the sea, therefore the revelation of our geolocation was highly celebrated.
After the excitement we went a little overboard with the pictures, so we will keep this post sea-less and invite you to follow us to the park instead to enjoy the light in anticipation!
I bought this Topshop and very fluffy pink sweater during last winter’s sales. Btw, this will almost sound totally unrelated, but finally The Gran Budapest Hotel was released here and we were first in line! Wow, it was breathtaking I wish I could live there just to have enough time to discover all the details. Oh! and the (weak) link in my mind between talking about my sweater and Wes Anderson was the pink color :)
The blue tights were completely an imposed choice when I (shamefully) discovered that they were the only ones not inside the laundry basket (what a horrible fashion blogger would I be :P)
This was a fascinating moment If I have to believe the expectation I raised from a family on a picnic right in front of us, and their little kid’s face.
Dani was also happy for our discovery.
Ahoy! sea ho! we are almost there! :)
