The Magic Fountain of Montjuic

I am back in cold, windy Norway after a week of enjoying the sun in beautiful Barcelona. It was my first time in Spain, and I think we managed to squeeze as many tourist attractions as we could into seven days!  My friend who I travelled with had never been to Barcelona either, so we wanted to see and experience as much as possible. I have a lot of great pictures to share with you, so stay tuned.. One of the highlights of the trip was the beautiful magic fountain of Montjuic. Designed by Charles Buigas, it was built for the Universal Exhibition in 1929. With spectacular light shows and music, this is one of the things you simply cannot miss if you’re ever in Barcelona.

6 Things That Make Me Smile

1. My sister’s paintings 

For as long as I can remember, my 12 year old little sister has been either painting, drawing or sketching. She is definitely the artist in the family, and I get so happy every time she shows me something new. She painted this picture a couple of days ago, and I though I would share it with you.

2. Street Musicians

In my opinion, street musician can change the entire atmosphere of a city. I love how a talented street musician can complete the feel of a certain street or square. And the variety is incredible, everything from classical music to blues and jazz. You never know what you’ll get! The amount of talented musicians out there never fails to impress me.

3. Stained Glass Windows 

It should be mentioned that I love the atmosphere and calmness of especially catholic churches. The stained glass windows, and how the sunshine looks when coming in through them is incredibly beautiful and serene. It reminds me of choir and sunday school from when I was little 🙂

4. The Sunset

My house in Norway has one of the most beautiful views imaginable, doesn’t it?

5. Beautiful Gardens

A  lush green lung in an otherwise busy city is in my opinion completely irreplaceable. Having a place to explore, socialize and just relax in beautiful surroundings is a wonderful thing. This picture is from Hyde Park, a place where there is always something left to discover! My university is fairly close to Richmond Park, which is also beautiful!

6. Vacation Planning

I’m currently planning a vacation to Barcelona with a friend of mine. Several things are on the to-do list, including La Sagrada Familia, La Rambla and the magic fountain of Montjuic. Suggestions for tourist attractions are welcome! I love the feeling of having something to look forward to 🙂
