‘The world is a book; and those who do not travel read only one page.’
Six Spanish Feelings:
The past few weeks have been CRAZY. Trying to balance uni work with preparing for weekend travels throughout the busy week has left me burnt out. I don’t think I’ve ever been this tired but being able to visit these beautiful cities and villages and make memories with some of the best people I’ve ever met makes every minute of this exhaustion worth it… here’s a few highlights:
Plaza Mayor at night & Convento de San Esteban (Los Dominicos) hallway and terrace (not Hogwarts)
Underground wall museum & Saint Vincent Basilica
Sevilla: The most beautiful place I have ever seen; my favourite place in the world!
Catedral de Sevilla, Alcazar de Sevilla, Plaza de Espana
Catedral de Segovia & Aqueduct de Segovia
Plaza de Espana, ferry from El Puerto de Santa Maríá, sunset on the beach
Alhambra, Arab Region & Catedral de Granada
Whilst in Gran Vía for brunch, a friend and I came across a pop-up event entitled ‘Antes que morir, quiero..’ a phrase which translates to mean ‘Before I die, I want to..’ which ended up being a wall full of individuals’ thoughts on exactly this, in several different languages.
After some more research, it came to my attention that this movement was an international project started by artist Candy Chang in New Orleans which quickly spread all over the world.
