So this month was all about getting back to the routine after summer. The transition was much smoother than I thought thanks to the (two) public holidays Barcelona had which included an amazing 4-festival called La Mercè.
Someone very special (I wonder who) gifted Tim tickets for the BBK Live music festival in Bilbao.
We made this the perfect occasion to explore northeastern Spain. We packed the car with camping gear and off we went to discover everything we could between Barcelona and Bilbao in just a few days.
June’s weekends were the opportunity to visit two new cities for the first time!
Having recently arrived to Barcelona, there’s so many places I want to explore. There’s many dishes I want to taste and traditions I want to learn about. That’s why I tried to make the most out of May’s weekends with trips to Montseny, an olive grove and Antwerp (in another country, yes, I know).
I’ve just arrived to Barcelona to begin working on my PhD. This is my second time in Spain and since Easter 2017 was just around the corner, Tim and I rented a car and planned an impromptu drive along the south Western coast. These are a few of our impressions along our week-long journey.
