A little reflecting

Monday, December 9, 2013

Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

It's that occasion again when I fill your time with a re-capturing of my past week. But before I do that let's talk about you, let's sit down with me at my kitchen table in Barcelona, and you where it is you kids hangout now a days and talk.

A tourist again

Monday, December 2, 2013

            Such a fantastic week in Barca, my parents came into town on Wednesday, and we were busy from the time they arrived to the time they left for the airport. I was a tour guide to the best parts of the city, visiting many of Barcelona's many wonderful destinations. I felt like a tourist again, but sort of re-discovered the city again checking out some unfamiliar sports, and bringing my parents to all worth checking out, like some of the great restaurants in the city.

"Home is whenever I'm with you."

Monday, November 25, 2013

As the plan is getting ready to land in Barcelona, "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros comes on over the loud speakers, and it couldn't be more fitting. I've only been in Barcelona around three months, but this feels like home, and the thought of leaving soon is making me feel a little home sick.

Greetings! Chris here, checking in after being stranded in Istanbul, and having just completed a fantastic 15 page paper, or at least I found it pretty impressive.

C'est Bon

Sunday, October 27, 2013

Hello readers, I truly hope you are doing well and preparing your oh-so intricately planned Halloween costumes. Remember to be safe, make wise decisions, and don't put anything too silly on Facebook if you hope to hold any serious position in the later years of your life. 

My week was nice, I spent time with friends and took a trip North to Toulouse, France a place of cuisine and historical buildings. So like tradition stands, I ate the bread, the cheese, the duck liver, the duck something, the pork something, and Nutella everything.

Hoy es tu vida.

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Hola amigos y amigas, I hope things are going well wherever you are. Things are sort of getting busy here, trying to apply for internships and taking a few test, I'd imagine you all are very busy as well. And if you happen to know where you're planning on going to school right now would be a good time to get your applications in, I'd say the sooner the better, and I'd also recommend putting CU on that list of schools.

The Food Network, Cheesecake, and Homework

Thursday, October 10, 2013

It was a last minute impulse to take a trip to and sure enough we ended up on a train to the other side of Spain, to a place of beauty but formally known as San Sebastian.

La Merce

Sunday, September 22, 2013

Describing a week in Barcelona is sort of like trying to describe your trip to Disney Land, you have no idea where to start and it's all fantastic. I've spent this last week with friends from many different parts of the world, experiencing wonderful offerings in Barcelona. Something that was certainly worth noting was joining in the festivities of the anual La Merca festival, which happens every September in dedication to the Patron Saint of Barcelona.
