What a sight!

Last Friday, as I was rushing to an appointment through the rain, I was blown away by what I saw at Plaça dels Àngels. I have no idea what occasion it was representing (I was in a rush, so didn’t stop to ask) but it is super festive so I think it’s perfect to wish you all Happy Holidays!

Castellers in white

I would’ve loved to stay and see what the castellers were going to get up to, all dressed in white and illuminated with black light…

Moody streets – Carrer Egipciaques

The streets are moody this time of year, and it makes you wonder… especially when you see a sign like this one (below) if it isn’t safe to say: “beware of bloodsuckers!”

Oh Tannenbaum – Carrer Muntaner

Happy Friday everyone! It’s the weekend, and for some of you that will mean a snowy one! I’m writing you from a Winter white Holland where I have been visiting with family, but I am due to fly back to Barcelona today. Whether I’ll actually be able to is uncertain, as one in three flights have been cancelled, and those that are flying are suffering from delays… To pass the time, how about some off duty Xmas lights?

Retro light, antique building – Carrer Hospital

There’s nothing like Christmas lights to put you in a festive mood, right? Well, I’ve been a little disappointed about this year’s lights in Barcelona. They are pretty much the same as last year, and that’s just boring. Obviously these are tough times (financially, politically) so I guess we’ll just have to grin and bear it! Trying to make the best of things (as I usually try to do) I realised that there are actually quite a few lights that I DO like, and these are the retro lights, dotted around town.
