When a waiter in the coffee place can predict, what I’m going to order, I start feeling like at home, even in a new place. And I know that in a certain time of the day, I will surely meet that older man, coming to have a coffee and read the newspapers, every day at the same table. His face slowly changes when he notices me. Before he was watching me a little suspicious, but a little later, he starts friendly wink whenever he sees me. (*true story) Continue Reading…

I discovered Montjuïc at my random walk, only ten minutes far from home and was amazed by the majesty of the place and the incredible view, as well. Montjuïc remains the highest point of the city because the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí believed, that no man-made object should be constructed higher than the work of God – the hill. Therefore, La Sagrada Família, when completed, will have its tower peak at 170 meters. This was intended to be one meter less than the Montjuïc hill. Continue Reading…

Are you that type of person, who prefers tourism with the delicious food or at least coffee at the end of the journey? Then come to me, I’ll give you a hug! Then, I suppose, you also aim to the local markets as one of the first things you do in a new city. It’s a sightseeing with eating as the main purpose. That, at certain point, can almost beat Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. But please, don’t tell anyone I said that.  Continue Reading…
