  • 'El ahorcado feliz' - The Happy Hangman

    The Happy Hangman café (El ahorcado feliz) is a bar next to Plaza Santa Eulalia. There are a lot of cool places in this area, and I like going there at night to eat or have a few drinks. It's quite a big bar, though it doesn't look like it from the outside. Its door is...

  • Coney Island

    Coney Island is one of the tourist sights in Brooklyn that I most enjoyed visiting in New York, which is why I think it deserves a separate entry. Coney Island is a peninsula on the very edge of southern Brookyln, and forms a large beach on the shore of the Atlantic...

  • Le Marais

    Le Marais is one of the strangest and most extravagant areas of Paris. I'd never heard of it before, though my friend insisted on us going there; and her insistence was well worth it. An artist's district, Le Marais spans small streets and squares with multi-coloured...

    Why have I chosen this title for this post? Why's this market so magical? I'll tell you why. This place is similar to the Madrid fleamarket, a place where you can find absolutely everything - whatever you're looking for, it'll be here somewhere. It's the biggest market...

  • Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

    We found ourselves surrounded by shadow, frozen before the uneven topography of the place, and I saw myself surrounded, locked in, while the desperation, the fear and the emotion I felt when leaving froze me to the spot. The city of Berlin, capital of Germany, is like...

    The Reichstag building is one of the most important in Berlin, being the headquarters of the German Parliament's Lower Chamber and, in my opinion, one of the prettiest buildings in Berlin. Constructed only a few centuries ago, the Reichstag building has nonetheless...
