Lea Gottlieb – Lady of the Daisies

If you live or visit Tel Aviv any time soon you have to, just HAVE TO, go to the Lea Gottlieb exhibition at the Design Museum of Holon! It’s an amazing exhibition called “Lady of the Dasies” and it showcases the history of the famous brand Gotex that Lea founded in 1956. She said “I Like Making Something Out of Nothing” and believe me, she really did, her work is splendorous and fascinating. So I repeat, if you have a chance – run to check her work, I promise you won’t regret it.

Barcelona – the place that stole my heart

Last week I went for a short trip to Barcelona – my favorite city! If you don’t know yet,  before I moved to Tel Aviv I was living there for a few years and I have to say that since I left I’ve been missing that place almost every day! There are SO many reasons one can love Barcelona, I will tell you why I do.

Barcelona is situated on the Mediterranean shore and the weather is nice for most of the year 🙂 You can enjoy the beach and sun all year round; even during the winter it’s usually not too cold for having a nice walk on the beach. Barcelona is also very multicultural – people from all over the world come to live there and it makes that city so unique! So many languages, different cultures, religions and ways of living are coexisting there. I remember when I came to the city for the first time I was very amused by that and I felt that no matter what you do and who you are you can find something for yourself in Barcelona. And so I did. And instead of staying 3 months I stayed more than a year and after the next two years I came back again to do my master’s degree there. Barcelona feels like a second home for me, I know all the small streets, bars with cheap Mojito and cool places to shop. Even if I go there as a tourist and take a lot of new pictures I really don’t feel like one – I feel like I’ve never left that place and I really belong there. Sometimes I laugh and say that I was born in Poland by mistake and even that I can’t say that I feel more Spanish than Polish I can definitely say that living in Barcelona has changed me, my way of seeing things and living life. One day I would like to have a wooden house on the beach close to Barcelona. Hopefully sooner than later 😉

New York, New York!

To be honest, New York was never on my “have to go there ASAP” list. Don’t ask me why but I was pretty sure that it’s just a huge city with tons of people and skyscrapers. Too crowded, too loud, too everything. How wrong was I!

I had a great chance to go to New York last September and I have to say this: I LOVED IT !

Yes, it’s crowded and yes, it can be a little bit overwhelming sometimes (especially walking on 7th Avenue during rush hours) but this city has so much to offer.

The whole time I was there I was just running around with my camera taking thousands of pictures. The view from the apartment I was staying at was really great, also, I could go up to the roof there and then behold the…breathtaking skyline!

I think the diversity of NY can’t be compared to any other place. You can find and meet there everything and everyone that could possibly be found or met. Wow, New York. I’m in love. I could talk and talk and talk about New York but I would rather let the images speak for themselves.

Just look at these pictures, how could you not fall in love with this city?
