Barcelona Memories :My Night Walks

IMG-20141119-WA0007Barcelona is one of the most amazing cities I have been to, I fell in love with the city just after seeing the pictures so much that I decided to do my Masters from Spain. LOL but true!   I am still  very much in love with the city and I think will always be, but now I have many reasons , I have met my husband there, some great friends and own now some lovely memories.

 There are memories associated with all corners of city  especially the streets  walked daily, cafeteria near our school and  those restaurants where we ate like crazy after our continuous lectures from 9am -2 pm !

I have a bag full of memories so to put them all in one post is not possible 😦 as I am looking to my old pictures now , but that could be another reason to post something again 😀

 I love to walk especially at night when most of the city sleeps except few night owls , the silence of  city and sound of water along the port always made me nostalgic.   My walk  was always the same streets from home to port and back , as if  sea beckons me everyday ,whispers to me through all those splashing waves ,I always feel that sea side  connection so strong.It was my daily destressing therapy , looking at the water, thinking about life  and musing then until we meet again tomorrow or day after!

Some of my favorite pictures from my Barcelona Memories Bag :

    Wow nice post sis!
    You know, i didn’t like Barcelona so much, but I must say your photos are amazing. You surely have excellent memories there since you met your husband (how cute is that owww!!)
    And I absolutely love what you wrote about your connection with the sea, it’s poetic… And I feel the same, the infinite sea always makes me meditate and wonder and the sound of water is so calming…
    May Allah bless you.

        Haha Maybe this “statue” is not that useless since it’s still disturbing me years after I saw it 😉
        I guess Ostende is as blue as the Seine in Paris, which means not blue at all but green.

  3. Assalamou alaikom dear sister! Barcelona is indeed an amazing city and I’ve loved living there as I felt there is a bit of everything so anyone could find whatever he wants, the sea, the mountain, the city life, the quiet life, the green life (I loved the Ciutadella Park ^^)… Transportation was awesome too! Even though you could easily walk around everyday from one place to another without feeling the distance, being amazed at each corner with different events, exhibitions, festivals, artists. I have wished to go back and live there but I believe being in a “Muslim majority” country makes things easier and is recommend (“hijra”)…

    Anyway you just reminded me of this wonderful city, thank you.

    Where were you studying? I was doing a master in the Pompeu Fabra University and I loved that place.

    May Allah bless you sister 🙂
