london, part III

I am a lucky person to be able to travel so much in one year! We all are lucky really in different ways and some more than others, but at the end of the day we all have something to be thankful for. I am personally thankful for being able to go to London three…

30th birthday

What do Montjuic Castle, Las Ramblas, a huge outdoor market, W Hotel, and Gaudi have in common? Fairly easy to answer: Barcelona, is where I spent my 30th birthday.

Oh what joy it is to walk around a beautiful historic island, surrounded by narrow streets all intertwined around a massive lagoon. Where do you think I am? Venezia, of course!
