Sunset en route to Pamplona

I took this on my way to Pamplona from San Sebastian. It’s been a tiring day and a part of me just wanted to get to bed in Pamplona. Mountain views, even off the highway, were excellent so when the sun started to set down we had to pull over for a break.

Driving somewhere in Spain

This trip came about out of practical reasons, but road trips are fun regardless. This is somewhere couple of hours west of Barcelona. If I had to be more precise, I’d guess somewhere around Zaragoza. You’d think I’d be able to be more precise with the mountains but I can’t tell more than the fact that it’s the Iberian mountain chain (Sistema Ibérico). Whatever the mountains are, it’s a beautiful view. One of those curves where paying attention to the road takes an extra effort.

Neoclassical Pavilion

It’s been a while since my last post. I’ve returned to my apartment in France more than a month ago and it’s only now that I finally got internet. I guess Internet providers have their own idea of what’s an acceptable waiting time.

This photo is form the Parc (Jardin) del Laberint d’Horta in the north of Barcelona in the district of Horta-Guinardó. The name of the park gives it away that this particular pavilion isn’t the major attraction, but I still find it to be interesting. Apparently the whole area belonged to one family.

Beach Days

September has barely come but the weather here in Midi-Pyrénées seems to be too eager to leave the summer sun behind. I  hope it’ll change it’s mind but for now to counter the clouds I feel like posting something from the beach.

Camp Nou

This is from a few weeks back during FC Barcelona’s season opener against Levante UD. I don’t  support Barcelona but I am a big football fan and couldn’t pass on the chance to see one of the best teams live. It turned out to be an entertaining encounter  with 7 goals, 6 of which were in the first half. Well maybe not so entertaining for those who came to see the away team.
