There are always more you can write about Paris

If you ask me which city I remember with love, I would tell you without doubt Paris. This city makes me cry; because it was the first city I have been in Europe. I stayed in a hostel called as far as I remember “Absolute”, quite close to la Bastille. Well the worst thing was I had to share my room with other 3 people. I was a little bit nervous, you know here in Venezuela is not easy to do it, and actually, I never could do it here, maybe with your friends. However, I was surprised because they were very respectful, kind, and friendly person so I could share and talk with them.

Paris for me is love, beautiful, culture, vibrant city. Maybe for you it is so stupid but when I went to have a walk the following day I started to cried, while I was walking on the streets. That moment was absolutely AMAZING, SUPERB; I could not believe I was there. Then I smiled to everybody that I met. As a city, it is a walk able, bright city. Building in Paris has been controlled by laws associated to the height and shape of buildings at least since the 17th century.

One of my favourite streets is “The Champs-Élysées” that is a 17th century avenue between the Place de la Concorde and the Napoleonic Arc de Triumphed. For a day, I walked from La Defense to Louvre Museum until 10:00 pm. In this way I could see amazing landmark as an Arc de Triomphe.

Eichstatt ¿city or town?

Eichstatt for me has everything that need a city. It is cute, small, and well-doing town. Besides,  it is a capital of the District of Eichstatt, aditionally, it is home to the Katholische Universitat Eichstatt-Ingolstadt, the lone Catholic university in Germany.

I visited this town with Yenny a friend who is married with a Mihael. He is a german man, and his parent are living in Eichastatt. So, I was in London before I came to Germany, and I was so tired to walk and walk in London, because I wanted to know every place I could visit. Well, when I arrived to Munich my friend Yenny said to me, that we would spent Merry Christman with parent’s Mihael, and I did not this before. The journey was amazing, the scenary and landscape, were breaktaking for me.

Parents’ Mihael were so cute, kind, lovely, really I felt like at home, with my father and mother. I taste a lot kind of beer from germany, I went to Merry Christmas’s mass, we had dinner and then talking about my life, their life and germany. It was a marvelous moment.

I grateful for this experience, I changed my mind about germany people, because I thought they are so close, but not.

If you want to visit a quite place and know germany people, let’s go to Eichstatt!

A Mysterious City

If you would like the mysterious and romantic cities I would recommend to you going to Prague. In this city I felt strange person, is like to know I had been there before but not. I can tell you some interesting landmark you might go If you choose, such as Charles Bridge (Karluv most), St Vitus Cathedral, John Lennon wall, Prague Castle, Jewish cemetery, St. Nicholas Church, Old Town Hall, Tyn Cathedral, Old Town square, and Powder Tower as well.  These reflect why Prague belongs to the World Heritage list of UNESCO since 1992.

I do not want to share the best place to visit I just would like to share how this city made me feel and what I learned from it.

On the other respect, I found this is a cheap city in that moment, the food, and everything. I have to say I was there in January 2010. I remember a beautiful moment when I was in the river, you can see in this picture:

A couple was getting married, I thought when I would get married, why it is so difficult to me find a good men. Well, maybe it is not my time yet.

As I said, Prague is a mysterious city to me, is old, but is how I could feel other souls those had been living there for a long time. Sometimes I was scared, overall with vampires’ stories, and the face on the old buildings.

If you want to see a Medieval Urbanism, you could go to Prague, because you can find that the New Town of Emperor Charles IV built as the New Jerusalem. Also you can find Gothic and High Baroque building as well as modernism from 1900.

Barcelona Twice for now

Barcelona 2013

To begin, I have been in Barcelona twice in my lifetime; the first one was in December 2010, and the second one February 2013. Both were absolutely amazing experience. Furthermore, I fall in love how the public space is; such as Ramble and its coastline is.  Barcelona is considered the second important city in Spain. Barcelona was a walled city.  Industrial revolution Barcelona increase economic it allow to become in a relevant city.

I have some friend living there, and they were my host in that moment. In addition, Karla was my favorite guide, she knew everyplace and their history, maybe, because she is an architect and she is really interested in. While Rodolfo knew a little bit more about “Ciutat Vella” though he is an engineer. Undoubtedly, I learn too many things about my life; this implies that I recognized how my energy was managed. Namely, I cannot control what others think about me, so I can only control what I choose to believe about myself.  In fact, I do not have and will never have control over what others think of me. However I always could take charge of what I think about myself.

Barcelona 2010

In my opinion when I travel I get a step to learn deeply more about myself and it is always an enjoyable journey!  As well as I enjoy “Sagrada Familia”, “Parc Guell”, “Ramble”, “Sants-Mont Juic”, “Vila Gracia”, Diagonal Avenue, “Passeig de Sant Joan”, “Gracia”, “Palau de la Música Catalana”  delicious food, nightlife, and so on.

Santa Maria del Mar, made me remain to my father, he was a fisherman and I thought if my father could have came with my, maybe He would have appreciated it. Also, I could visited some museum including, The Foundation Joan Miró, Picasso Museum, Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (Designed by Richard Meier), and National Museum of Art of Catalonia. Moreover, Barcelona has many park, such as Montjuic, Parc de la Ciutadella, Park Guel, Diagonal Mar Park, and Poblenou Park.

Turning to my trips, when I arrived to Barcelona I meet with two friends Raquel and Karla. Raquel was spending her holidays as me. In that moment, Karla was living there. As can be expected we spent beautiful days walking around Barcelona, and chatting about how our life was going in. I remember a Saturday night my friends told me go out to a party, and I said off course go for it! Then, I never listened when Karla had tried to wake up, unfortunately I could do it. I was exhausted for a long trip from Munich.

To conclusion, I would like to say Barcelona is an out of the ordinary city, it could call a Global City, because I could see their different historical moment that show to me how this city had changed a long.
