Wake up before dawn and get ready to run out the door. Pause. Add a huge hat and a pink faux fur coat. I might be going to the market to buy food for dinner, but you can never be overdressed. I’m only half joking, it’s the last day of the year! Apart from a few people walking dogs and an odd jogger, the streets of Barcelona are empty and still.
The crowds are yet to flood La Boqueria, but behind the counters, the work is already in full swing. Shopping for a homecooked dinner here is a dream come true.
Has it been two hours? It might be time to grab a bite. Any little cafe in La Boqueria serves the freshest food cooked (or uncooked) to perfection.
I don’t remember life before Airbnb. Actually, I do. A sad life filled with generic apartments and uninspired monstrous hotels. After using it for the past few years, I now consider myself an Airbnb aficionado. I mean, look at this gem! A 19-century factory that used to be an art gallery and was later turned into a spacious loft apartment. The whole decor is #goals, but if you know where to find the faceless sculpture, please tell me, it’s my favourite art piece. Look how cute she looks in my sunglasses <3
There’s nothing like walking through the old center on the last day of the year. The city is buzzing with excitement and anticipation.
The streets are almost quiet again. Some are preparing the New Year’s Eve dinner, some are getting ready to party. We should get home and start cooking too. Maybe there’s time for another coffee before strolling back. Yes, there’s definitely time.
The dinner is ready, and I couldn’t miss the opportunity to shoot my NYE outfit in this beautiful space. Farewell, 2015.
Thank you for joining me for the last day of 2015. How did you spend it?
