Learning Languages…

How many languages do you speak? And I don’t mean, which languages did the UK school system make you learn for a couple of hours here and there when you were in High School. I’m talking fluent or enough to get by living in another country. As a Brit, it’s pretty much always just English and if you were keen you might have enough French, German or Spanish to get by on holiday but not much else. For me I know a bit of French, but really only my English is something to shout about.

Brexit and Fireworks in Barcelona…

Last night in Barcelona was a strange one, we spent some time with our friend Bryan who is from South America¬†and met a whole bunch of new people from all over the world, happily living here in Spain. Last night was the Feast of Sant Joan, Catalonia’s celebration of Summer Solstice and their patron saint. The streets of the entire city were flooded with bonfires, firecrackers and fireworks for most of the day and into the early hours, with children happily dancing over fires and setting light to small explosives. There are still fireworks going off now, 11am the day after. It felt apocalyptic, especially when combined with the EU referendum results that we were so anxiously waiting, whilst we watched the fire brigade extinguish a blazing fire over the entrance of a block of flats across the road. Bizarre.

Why we’ve moved to Spain…

Why not? Where we are born is not something we can choose, it just happens. So, why not think about living in another country? It’s an adventure, it’s an opportunity to learn a new language, it’s a chance to meet new people and live amongst a different culture and chances are you’ll get better weather than the UK too! Whilst the UK is still part of the EU, it’s the time to give it a go too whilst the process is fairly straight forward, who knows what the future holds there! It’s not straight forward at all, but more on that in another post. We signed the paperwork and got our keys last night, so now we’ve just got to figure out how to get our stuff there, so, time to explain it all!

Best Burger in Barcelona: Bacoa

When we lived in London one of our favourite things to do was to go for a burger. We went to pretty much all of the places that made it onto any best burger in London list and generally our top 3 include MEATMission, Burger Bear and Dirty Burger. A few weeks ago we were in Barcelona and we found a burger that may just rival our London top three, The Bacoa Burger at Bacoa.

Highlights from our Barcelona Trip…

This is a long overdue blog post, as we went to Barcelona almost a month ago now! Which has totally flown by with us being so busy. Anyway, wanted to do a little blog post about our trip as it was a first for me. First time in Spain, first time not working towards a strict tourist must see list, first time cycling in another country (and second time since being a kid), first time drinking cocktails on a beach and many more.

To get things started, that’s me sat on the beach drinking the best cocktail I’ve ever had, a Pina Colada the size of my head. Perfect. Read more
