BCN Visitors - Bérengère aka Gagouille
My 'grande amie' Bérengère came to visit me for the weekend. We met 10yrs ago in London where we were both working for Getty Images, and instantly became friends! I will definitely be interviewing Berenji for the blog as she has a very interesting life and a precious way of giving importance to things that most of us take for granted; and since she lives in Paris, I will get her to do a post on the 10 things she loves about her city, which I have no doubt you'll adore!
We spent an afternoon at the beach in Sitges, which is a typical beach town of the Costa Brava, super crowded beach but it was nice to walk around the old town doing impromptu photo shoots. (this visit to Sitges was a lot more civilised than when I used to live in BCN in my 20s: I used sun lotion, I was sober and I didn't get lost!) We also visited the Palau de la Musica which is a stunning building and has beautiful mosaics (see photo). I finally made it to see a Flamenco show Ryan told me about, I was sceptical as Catalunya is not known for its Flamenco but it was a great show at the Taller de Musics, a small music school with a little bar/stage, totally worth checking out! On Sunday, we had brunch at Granja Petitbo with MamaKikoy, then walked up to Casa Fuster for a last drink & view of the city before Berenji had to jet back off to Paris.
