Sunrises, Trees, Monkeys And Catch Up

Happy February!

Winter’s back! I always forget February gives January a run for it’s money here in which month’s the coldest. February’s short and sweet, but it packs a punch in rainy, windy, grey overcast, sunny cold days.

Next week I start my indoor climbing classes. I’ve never done anything like it before apart from climbing trees as a kid so I’m a little nervous and excited. I’m scaling down my gym workouts next week so I have energy. I know it’s probably a workout in itself, however I’m what if the first class is just theory? I won’t get my fix.

Anyways, last week when by in a blur and I didn’t get a change to stop by and say Hi Continue reading “Sunrises, Trees, Monkeys And Catch Up”

Downtown Market and Salomon Run Barcelona

Coconut oil at the moment is somewhat a solid mush. That means one thing: Spring’s warming up! Sunset overlooking Barri Gotic Quarter, Barcelona from Maremagnum centre commercial

I hope you’re having a great week so far! This past weekend was a little more action packed that normal, so I’ll let the photos do most of the talking.  Continue reading “Downtown Market and Salomon Run Barcelona”

Transitioning

Happy Friday!

I hope you’re having a great week! I can’t believe we’re half way through March already and this post was planned for Monday. Whatever. The half way through March and that it’s officially Spring on Monday’s a reminder like this motivation quote that Tone It Up shared on Instagram a few weeks ago: One Day or Day One.

I had plans this past weekend to sort out Continue reading “Transitioning”

Ciutat Port: la Barcelona Productiva/ City Port: The Productive Barcelona Exhibition

Every now and then I like to checkout the sea view or sunset from behind the W hotel. It’s nothing fancy like inside, skaters like the low ramps and railings but the view of the city coast line is worth a visit. Saturday after gym time, I decided to catch the sunset from its steps. The sun shimmering between 2 old port buildings in Moll de Llevant caught my eye and then there was that strip of blue all along the pavement opposite. Curiosity got the better of me, I can catch the sunset another time.

The blue turned out to be a blue carpet part of a temporary exhibition, Ciutat Port: la Barcelona Productiva in collaboration with the Hong Kong government documenting the development, expansion and history of Port Vell and the main shipping, commercial port, from the late 1800’s until today. If it hadn’t have been for the blue carpet, you’d totally would have missed the large black and white photos and drawings on the old building walls. It was also fun to play spot where’s your old apartment (still there in the oldest drawing!) and place where buildings, streets are still today.
