Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you had a great weekend! The heat started this weekend which I’m not complaining about one little bit! It feels like I’ve waited for ages to it to arrive every since it first started whispering hello at the beginning of May. I’ve mentioned before that the past few months I’ve really noticed how quickly the days shorten and lengthen, how quickly the light changes and how quickly times moves. With that in mind and the Summer Solstice in 8 days, you bet I’m going to lap up the heat until it says see ya for the Southern hemisphere. 

This week’s Weekend Friday Favourites is slightly different this week. A little catch up thrown in amongst things that have caught my eye (more…)

Barcelona Street Art AKA Graffiti

Barcelona has a reputation of being hip. One of the cities to visit if traveling in Europe. There’s a bit of something for everyone.

It’s also a city that has a reputation for street art. Especially the graffiti kind. There are a lot of crap tags, but equally there’s a lot of great art work sprayed on the walls. The best pieces get respect and can be around untouched for months. The city’s even dedicated a walls solo for graffiti (the most popular is near Placa Espanya behind the Hilton Hotel). It’s not usual for shops ask graffiti artists to commission pieces on their shutters to avoid getting tagged and there’s always a cheeky piece popping up where you least expect it. These are what I’ve stubbled across out and about in the last few months.
