Viva la vida!

I have to say that I'm a huge fan of Frida Kahlo, here paintings are so colourful, and expressive.
But here life was very hard, at the age of 19 she had an accident which caused pain her whole life. But she was very strong and lerned to deal with it. I admire her for her belief  in life and her are real inspirating. I also love the film "Frida" starring Salma Hayek. You can take a look at her homepage, it has a magnificent design.
And, always remember her motto "Viva la vida!"

I'm back from my trip to Barcelona, unfortunately the trip got a bit shorter than we planned, but it was great anyway. Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever been, everywhere you go are street artists, vintage-shops, artworks,... My favourite quarter is Barri Gòtic, it's in the historic city centre. There you can find narrow streets, small, cute shops and original restaurants. The picture above shows the harbour at night.
Here are some shops you have to see:
1.  in the gelateria gelaaati you can find handmade ice crem with very special flavours
2. the organic market woki has a very special design and is also a restaurant with a broad choice of food
3. kling is a shop where you can find cool clothes which are not to expensive
4. at papabubble you can watch how candy is made out of sugar
