3 Apr


It caught me completely by surprise, when last night I realised that the Cute Suite blog turned two yesterday. Two!!! Goodness, have two years really passed, since one Saturday morning in April I decided to start a blog to share things about Barcelona that I like? Apparently!

That deserved a celebration, and so I decided to postpone the post I had prepared for today until tomorrow, and prepare a different post for today…  I have just come back from the street, quickly uploaded the photos I took and whipped up this here little blog post, much later than normal, but here it is! A small collection of numbers 2 from around the area where I live, starting with the one on my street. Happy Birthday to the Cute Suite!

If I have managed to keep up the blogging until now, it’s all thanks to YOU, dear readers! Knowing you’re out there, checking out the blog, commenting, liking, signing up to be informed of updates, that is what keeps me going. Now… whaddaya say, would you like me to continue?

9 years…

Barcelona Cute Suite 9 years in Barcelona


Happy Monday! I am celebrating today! Why, you ask? Well, today it is 9 years since I arrived in Barcelona! So I thought I’d share with you some images from my archives and reflect on these past years…

There have been many visits to the beach, to enjoy the sun and chill as well as gaze our at the horizon to calm stormy thoughts, and walk along the promenade in all kinds of weather.

Carrer Notariat

It has rained, sometimes incredibly heavily, and there have been tears every now and then when things got a little too overwhelming, or when joy made my eyes brim with the salty stuff.

Carrer Nou de la Rambla

Many gorgeous sunrises and sunsets have been enjoyed, and the spectacle of fluffy, multi-coloured clouds documented from my former home on Carrer Nou de la Rambla. (I still miss that stunning view!)

But all in all, of these past 9 years, the balance is positive, and there are many days when Barcelona offers me bliss! :)

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Hip hip hooray!

Happy Monday! Today one year ago, while enjoying a morning coffee at the beach, inspiration hit me, and I decided to start the very blog that you are reading right now. It’s hard to believe that a whole year has passed already, but it has and so: Hip hip hooray! Happy Birthday to the Cute Suite!
