“Travel to not find yourself but to remember who you’ve been all along.”

After Satu’s exchange semester in Barcelona and naturally wifey’s visit to her new home, followed by our study trip to ESADE business school couple months ago, it is safe to say that we left a part of our hearts to this city. So this is where we wanted to go once our semester in Helsinki was over for a total mind emptying of the work of past months. Terhi spontaneously joined us which completed our crew. 😉 Every now and then I realised myself thinking that though I spend my time with these girls back home too, being on vacation and in a inspiring environment definitely brought fresh vibes, not saying that we’d usually be boring of course ;). We are now, not just a bunch but more like a thousand jokes and memories richer. Which we need next year while being apart for long times again!

Barcelona really is the perfect city for vacation. Our formula was simple: tapas in our favourites and new discoveries, with wine of course, laying hours on a most zen rooftop overlooking the roofs of the city, absorbing each sun ray and enjoying moments of just being, some partying, discovering the perfect gelato, wondering endlessly in El Born. I’d say that there’s something in the Barcelona air that makes you feel spontaneous, free and worry less. The feeling of not having a constant to-do list running in your head felt luxurious and is something I will aim every now and then. You need occasional mind emptying to make room for fresh ideas, absorbing what you’ve learned lately, and visualising more clearly what you want to keep in your life and what goals to set for the future.

Our favourites in nutshell:

La Pepita for dinner

Travel & Cake for brunch

Disset Graus for dinner

El Born for exploring any time of the day

Milk for brunch

Surf House for lunch by the beach

Brunch Elecktronik for day partying on Summer Sundays

Also, be sure to discover a rooftop where to escape the city buzz for a zen moment over the Barcelona roofs. Our’s we’ll aim to keep as a hidden pearl. 😉



Here’s another city for me that feels like home. You miss it while you’re away, but then again appreciate so much every time you have a chance to go. Until next time Barcelona, and thank you girls for a one-of-a-kind holiday 😉 ❤
