Last Thursday evening my brother and I drove off to Barcelona. It is a long driving from Madrid but we just missed our niece and nephew so much that we took advantage of our Friday school day off and did not think twice. We got there quite late and was a nice surprise for them to see us in the morning and nice to take them to school. After that we went to the city, strolled about for a few hours and discovered the lovely atelier shops in El Born. I especially liked the atelier-loft of a shop called Weaving: they have such cute bags and the loft is just so inspirational that living in one of those creative spaces has become in my new dream.
