Brunch

The other day we tried a new brunch place (Aguaribay) that only serves vegetarian dishes. I thought the food was very good for only having vegetarian options, with lots of mixes and flavours, I ordered a spicy (it was a bit too spicy) green curry with rice which was really good even with just vegetables. The place was very cozy and had a nice atmosphere for a Sunday brunch with the girls 🙂

Spanish course

The days goes really fast in Tenerife but at the same time I feel like I have been here a really long time. The week was a bit intense with the Spanish course (which I passed and got my diploma yesterday) 🙂 It was a good experience and I think I actually have learned a lot more then expected in only one week considering that I had class from 09.00 – 11.15 only. It was kind of nice going there everyday and talking Spanish only and talking to new people, having coffee in the cafeteria and then having the afternoon free so I would definitely recommend it. I think I just needed this course to “get back” to my Spanish and I really feel like I did 🙂

Sunday

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

This morning we went to the Palo Alto Market in Poblenou which is foodtruck /vintage Market they arrange the first weekend every month. We were lucky because there is usually a big line to go in but this time it took only 3 minutes 🙂 We had some nice lunch there, I had arepas with chicken and avocado and she had a hamburguer that looked really delicious! There is a lot of food trucks with everything from paella to japanese crepes, but there is also a lot of different things to buy like homemade things in wood, sunglasses, vintage clothes etc. The atmosphere is really cute with trees and today it almost felt like it was summer again 🙂 We ended our afternoon by going to the beach and just had some water at a beachbar, it was a nice Sunday 🙂

Tenerife

We were invited to a wedding in Tenerife so we had a good excuse to travel here for the weekend 🙂 The wedding was really lovely and it was fun to go to a Spanish wedding as I have never been to one before. It was a daywedding so we came at 12 and left at midnight after have been dancing all night! The food was supertasty, small apertisers and drinks in the super hot weather (was very warm all day) and then we had a three course dinner before the dance floor started. The ceremony was really beautiful and a little bit emotional 🙂

Tapas night

Friday evening we had a tapas dinner with friends I haven’t seen in two years so it was very nice to meet again and also to meet their little new family member 🙂 We tried a nice place in passeig Sant Joan (don’t remember the name now) but it was a cozy terrace outside beside the trees and supergood tapas. We had some good wine, Amazing type of patatas bravas, squids, ham, different cheeses..it was all very yummie! The funny thing was that it has been so warm in Barcelona lately, like 36 degrees last week (so we have been living in a sauna) and on Friday was the first day it was actually “cold” and we could have a sweater 🙂 It was honestly so nice with some fresh air, I also love the summer but it has been too hot lately to even sit and have dinner or a glass of wine outside 🙂

Sunday

On Sunday we drove early to Castelldefels and spent the whole day at the beach with the family and our friends came by. For me it was probably one of the warmest days so far so I was in the water a lot to cool down, even though the sea water now actually is quite warm 🙂 We had a lovely day and had dinner at one of the beachbars, it was really good squids and patatas bravas and something I really like called baba ganoush which is like humus but with aubergine instead. I really enjoy being at the beach this year and I feel so lucky having all these beautiful places around us.

Saturday dinner

Yesterday afternoon the family arrived and will be staying with us for a week so I am really happy they are here and that I have the weekend off to spend with them 🙂 It’s always so nice to have visits and there are always so many things to do in Barcelona that you don’t know where to start. We walked down to the beach in the evening to have dinner at a beachbar and the kids could play in the sand and even swam as it was still so hot. The beachbar was pretty empty, I guess because there were two superbig festivals at this time but anyway it was a nice atmosphere and we could get a table for so many people 🙂 I really love these beachbars, they have good music and the best view.
