Así es la vida en España

Así es la vida en España

I came across this editorial for US Harpers Bazaar August issue, shot in Seville, Spain and was instantly reminded of why I’m learning Spanish. This first photo just did it for me, Jessica Stam in a gorgeous dress in this incredibly beautiful and dramatic setting, sigh… it makes me want to visit so badly! Why, oh why is South Africa so far away?!

I loved everything about Spain when I last visited, the architecture, the little towns with cobbled streets, the bold colours, all the beautiful tile work, Barcelona, the friendly vibrant people and their culture,  I hope to visit again sometime soon. What do you think? Is Spain on your travel list too?

    I lived in Spain for a year during college and got to travel all over the country so it's definitely a very personal place for me.

    Some days I miss Spain so much I feel as though I cannot bear it. It became our "home away from home" but in our hearts it truly felt like home. I do so hope that Denmark will feel that way after a little while. I wish my Spanish was better after living in Spain for two years, but living outside Barcelona meant that we heard Catalan 95% of the time! Still… Barcelona was an absolute dream.

    Gorgeous. The editorial made me chuckle, because it reminded me SO much of an America's Next Top Model photo shoot many seasons ago. everything cycles around!
