Tenth anniversary


Tuesday, July 13, 2010


Writing two different blogs doesn't seem to work the way I thought it would so I'm "moving" back to my original tiskiblogi. From today on you'll find most of my posts there translated, just as I used to do.

Be the most welcome!

Never seen this temperature in this thermometer before.

It's warm!

Heavy rain yesterday around here but not quite. I did get wet though riding my bike to the mall and back. I was sweating like a hippo. In this outfit I felt like even the shorts are too much. Inside we have 29°C. Feels like being abroad.

I have a blog award (here you can find out how it begun) I'd love to give to Princess Caro, who's such a sunshiny personality that her energy flows here all the way from Middle Europe! Thank you so much Caro! 

I require no confessions, but I do hope she has equally wonderful sources of joy and inspiration. And by all means, she can pass it on as well.


I'm going to the hairdresser's 21st this month and could really use some ideas. 
Or perhaps not, since she's never let me down even if I've given her total freedom. 
Here are some of my old styles. I do like the short one, but the problem is it won't be short for long. And we live 200 km apart. My hair grows almost 2 cm a month (that's about 0.8 in). That's fast.

Barcelona, el Born

I cannot imagine a troip to Spain without garlic shrimps:

Yes, it was a gourmet trip, breakfast at the hotel, noon coffee, afternoon tapas and dinner in the evening. 

A few years ago we hat an apartment in El Born, which is a part of the old town. We would have loved to stay there, but of course it was taken. You can figure out why by looking at some pictures here.

Here are the most innovative and delicious tapas in Born. The place is called Bubo and it's located next to the Santa Maria del Mar church, which by the way is being built in the famous novel Cathedral of the Sea. It's a beautiful church, we finally saw it from the inside, too.  

We had tomato mozzarella salad and caesar salad plus croquettes and a bikini, the toast which normally doesn't look so beautiful and taste just amazing. This was filled with mushroom paste which was seasoned with truffle oil. I once bought a bottle of it in Italy. It was awful so I threw it away. Now I believe that I just should have used it in teeny tiny drops.

Bubo also has an amazing bakery -beware of the images, they're just TOO delicious!


I could live in a place where you can pick up the ingredients for a dinner like this...

So there's also a shop which sells olive oils etc (the bottles in the picture) but when we were heading there to do some shopping, they were closing doors for siesta. So we continued to Pl. de Olles and bought basil and provencal flavored oils as always and these delicious fruit pulp vinegars.

And a couple of outfits, of course: these tops are actually just two silk scarves.

Heavenly food in Noti restaurant, the very best dinner ever!

Barcelona museums

We've been to a lot of museums in Barcelona before but for some reason never in Museu Tèxtil i d’Indumentària. It wasn't located where it used to be, so we checked out another exhibition first. These are printed, I mean really, printed.  

And then the actual place of interest with dresses from the 16th to the 21st century, Dior, Paco Rabanne and Cristobal Balenciaga (himself) to mention a few:

And my greekish le sac. I definitely need another one, shorter.

I also had to buy a new pair of sandals, it clearly was a mistake to leave home with just one pair. The selection was boooooring, but I manged to make a really good and comfortable choice.
