I went on a blog hiatus and that’s because I’ve been away for a few weeks. Mathew & I just got back from our honeymoon/vacation in Spain. We visited Barcelona and a much smaller town on the ‘countryside’ called Sitges. It was beautiful! This is a quick post to share a few pics from the holiday.
I normally log around with my massive not-so-portable DSLR Canon Camera. But it gets tiring carrying a huge camera and lens around especially when you just want to have fun. This time I ditched it and used my Nokia Lumia 1020. The camera on this phone has been all the rave so I wanted to try it out. I got this phone for such emergencies and I must say it did a great job!
One thing you can say about Barcelona is there is not a shortage of mime acts. I literally ran into one every 5 minutes on The Ramblas. This beautiful turquoise geisha princess was my favourite though. And what a coincidence that I ran into her the next day! LOL. She was in plain clothes, but she still had blue streaks in her hair. We waved at each other…ah, the birth of new friendships…
The next day we set out for a sunny walk down to the beach.
I was the mysterious lady in red 😉
While Matt was just…mysterious.
Instead of jumping right into the beach action like everyone, I opted to do my favourite thing – EAT. And boy did I eat. I don’t think I’ve had a more delicious meal of Paella before. The restaurant we dined at was called La Litoral which brought back vague memories of Douala 😉
A full girl is a happy girl 🙂
We took this silly video just after the meal. I couldn’t even walk. LOL.
The next day it was time to see the great and impressive Gaudi architecture by the famous artist Antoni Gaudi.
Then I got hungry.
Yum, yum. Another pan of paella bites the dust.
Then it was time to hit the BEACH! In my favourite rainbow one piece 😉
The best view ever.
Then to the beach.
The next evening, I thought; I packed a few heels. I might as well wear one of them. Hence, the strappy sandals. I missed my feathery slippers though. They are just the most comfortable things. I wore them everywhere, literally. LOL!
I was Catwoman for a day. Meoooow! My feather slippers again!
I also donned this lovely floral day dress which was gifted to me.
One short beach stroll. It was too cold to get in the water 🙁
Last few days were spent sunbathing as usual. By this time I felt like a stuffed goat.
Take Off: Good bye BCN. Welcome BHX ;( 🙁 🙁
There you have it!
Our holiday snaps.
Hope you lurved them.
Enjoy your weekend and God bless.
Love & Light
