La noche de San Joan

The night of San Joan by far is one of my favorite nights in Barcelona.   One thing I never tire of living in Spain is that there is always something to celebrate... there is always some sort of holidays, celebrations, parties and happiness. And it's great. It makes living in this great country even greater.   … Continue reading La noche de San Joan

loss and learning

Today I've been spending a lot more time than usual reflecting on life....  I feel as if all my recent blog posts have been about all the crazy things spinning round and round in circles in my head. But sometimes that's part of living abroad, just because you're living in a different country, in a … Continue reading loss and learning

regrets

We are so plugged in to everything all the time. The Internet and the world are at our fingertips, which is an amazing thing... but also … Continue reading live in the moment

But sometimes life doesn't happen the way you think it will. But the reality is I've met someone and it's really changed everything. The … Continue reading Love Abroad

Living (abroad) with anxiety 

Anxiety is like the giant elephant in the room. Something you always feel, always see, but no one else notices it... or wants to talk about it. It's something that I've kept out of my writing, and after having a rather difficult past few weeks I felt it was time to address it. (In some … Continue reading Living (abroad) with anxiety 

happiness

Of this be sure: you do not find the happy life... you make it. Everywhere I go in Barcelona i find happiness. There is something about this city that makes me beyond happy, it feels like home and I'm just so comfortable here. And while for me this is the perfect place I can't help … Continue reading happiness
