SEVILLA

During my gap year I spend 3 months in Cadiz in the South of Spain. I had an amazing time there; learning to speak Spanish, surfing almost every evening and meeting new people. Cadiz, especially the old city, is a beautiful place and there aren’t to many tourists due to the fact that there is no airport very close by. The second month my mum came to visit me there and besides showing her all of Cadiz, we also stayed in Sevilla for a couple of days. In comparison to Cadiz, there were a lot more tourists here, but nevertheless was it a lovely city with beautiful architecture.

Mercat de la Boqueria Barcelona

I know it has been a long time since I posted something, due to traveling but I’m back! Well, back in Barcelona! I have been in Barcelona for exactly a week now and I can honestly say this is one of my top 3 favourite cities in the world. Of course I had to visit the market La Boqueria the first day and I have with no exception, gone back every single day to buy fruit, vegetables, talk to people, walk around and just admire the amazing atmosphere and arraign of food. I would love to share the pictures I made and a few of the stands I went back to everyday. If you would like to see more of a story about the market itself and the people I talked let me know! But for now, here is snapshot into my idea of heaven on earth!

 

(little tip if you have to opportunity to visit this market for yourself, stay away from the centre and walk through the outer stalls. Not only are there a lot more people in the centre, but also the pricier will be double. In addition, these marketeers are more likely to get into a conversation with you about their food, which is always fun)

Beautiful and very affordable greens! This is the stand (if you go through the main entrance turn right and it will be one of the first you see) where i have been buying most of my leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables.

This might be my favourite stand (located at the  back of the market), it has the most incredible selection of (dried) mushrooms and herbs. (The next three photos are from this stand as well)
