Moments of Zen

Just another gem of modern architecture. Come and hide from the outside chaos. You will feel a calming vibe after approximately 30s of sitting on the “Barcelona chair” the icon of modernism (after you`ve been standing around, waiting for your turn for about 10 mins). Radical simplicity combined with the finest materials … why can’t we all live like this?

Water is life!

One of the reasons I really enjoy living in Barcelona are the water fountains/hydrants everywhere.

 

How tragic that Rome had to turn of its historic water fountains due to drought. For the first time since ancient times. Read here.

Out & about

Little reminder, life ain`t bad when you see this on the way to buy sustainable sourced eco Nesquick.

Casa Vincent is one of Gaudí`s earliest works. Currently under reconstruction to be opened for public for the first time as a museum this fall.

 

My shopping is from Veritas, a store hated by some for riding on the wave of Barcelona`s gentrification and loved by others, you know the story. Should I have walked couple of meters down the road to the co – op? Yes! Am I happy my juice has no sugar and my cereals have no chemicals? Yes!

City gardens

Jardins de Ca n’Altimira, once an eccentric millionaires private gardens. In 1880 there were lakes, waterfalls, caves and exotic vegetation. The portico provided access to other caves connected to the house. It is said that at various points the caves were flooded so that Altimira and his guests could boat through them.

Community garden of the people of Vallcarca.
