Barcelona in Sant Jordi’s day

I got to Barcelona yesterday April 23rd on the day of San Jorge and to be honest it seemed like a second Valentine’s Day of the year. Guys give a rose to the girls and the girls give them a book. It was beautiful too see, so many roses in Passeis De Gracia and so many couples kissing and hugging, it’s nice to see love in the air. That’s pretty much it for our first day in Barcelona, from the airport (in which I found the metro very clean) to the hotel and then out to check out our surroundings but it was too busy to actually have a proper stroll, it seemed like we were lining up to get in a concert. As I mentioned before it was nice to have a celebration to check out, it’s always pleasant to see people celebrating their traditions. We only spent 3 hours “sightseeing” because of of the amount of people in the city and us being tired from only a 3 hours sleep. This is not all though, it’s only our first day 😉 

Thira Santorini

Probably the best place I’ve been too. And i’ve been here only 2 days!

Despite all the awful things that happen in this world, Santorini is a paradise. The views, the food, the wine, the sunsets, and the way Greeks take care of their island by constantly painting the walls and floors to maintain their place tidy and good for the eye. And no mention their cordiality and will to help you out. Greece is not doing well as most Europe and I admire that they treat tourists with respect because they need them, and something that I really admire is that everyone speaks English. Unlike in my country, Italy..they expect you to get to learn Italian, how embarrassing. Well this is to keep enjoying my days in the island and to keep pushing forward the date to leave :p because I really don’t want to at least not yet !
