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 😉
