It’s been nothing but grey and cold in Berlin this past week, so I’m so happy to finally be soaking up some sun in Barcelona this weekend!
WATCH: Check out this excellent short film, ‘Vienna waits for you’, directed by Dominik Hartl, available to watch on Vimeo. The film’s premise centres around a young woman searching for an apartment to rent in Vienna after recently breaking up with her boyfriend. Unfortunately, the flat that she settles has a life of its own, wanting to take more from her than just her monthly rent; a creature that survives on sucking the youth out of its tenants! With excellent production design, this really is a nice way to spend 26 minutes of your time.
READ: Nicole’s gorgeous photos of Switzerland really do remind me that I must see this breathtaking part of Europe whilst I’m living over here.
COOK: I love a good cocktail like any girl and recently had a killer one at my favourite cocktail bar in Berlin, John Muir. I also love the make at home variety and this rhubarb, grapefruit and thyme cocktail looks mighty tasty.
MAKE: Don’t you think this idea of making your own clay magnets for your fridge is great? Finding little messages there would be such fun.
DREAM BUY: Wouldn’t it just be a dream to stay at the Hotel d’Angleterre (est. 1755), in Copenhagen? I’ll take the Royal Suite thank you.
BUDGET BUY: I have been budgeting pretty strictly this past week so that I can enjoy all that Barcelona has to offer guilt free this weekend. I love the fact that I can eat out in Berlin for 7 euros or less. My favourite go-to cheap dinner is a schawarma teller at Luxa on Torstraße in Mitte which contains a mouth-watering pile of spit-roasted chicken, crisp falafels, pickled vegetables, salad, tabouli, humous, chilli sauce, yoghurt sauce and oven-baked bread, all for 5 euros. Drool.
GO: It’s a beautiful time to visit Barcelona right now. Tourist season has not fully hit the city just yet and the days are warm with temperatures in the low 20s and sunny. Unfortunately I can’t stay longer-I’m back on a plane to Berlin tonight ready for work on Monday morning!
