Inspiration: Painted Patterns in Barcelona

More travel photos to make you want to hop on a plane this summer! I am currently organizing all my photo files from the past years and hence the reason for my travel photo posts. When we travel, we come home with almost 2,000 photos and it’s a shame that they are all hidden in our hard drive or in burnt discs. So in the next while, I’ll be randomly posting some of our travel photos to inspire you and me to go back to them someday. I had forgotten about these photos so it’s nice to visually see them again.

When we visited Barcelona, I was amazed to see the buildings so well preserved. The building facades are so colourfully painted and features such beautiful doors & windows. I was in awe. I can see how proud the citizens are of their history that they make all efforts to preserve them. I was constantly taking photos with each step I made hoping that one day, these patterns & colours will inspire me to create something with them. Such beauty & elegance.

I also have to say how much I love catalonian food. We feasted on paella, pan con tomate (a slice of country bread rubbed with tomato & garlic and drizzled with olive oil), chorizo, gazpacho, bacalao and absolutely enjoyed eating at a Pintxo bar (basque style tapas). We only got to try one pintxo bar and it’s called Irati – SO good!!

We also found a great place to stay at called, Casa Meva. The owners are architects & they did an amazing job with the space. Super highly recommended! The location is great too with a little churros cafe right next door. How convenient is that? Would definitely stay here again.
