Amsterdam (2)

Amsterdam (2)

The girl from my flat asked me while I was preparing my breakfast ‘do you like alcohol?’… I’m used to be asked if I want to have a drink, meet people and stuff; but this is straight forward, ‘do-you-like-alcohol?’. ………’sure!’ I said. So I’m meeting with them, at 6pm. In Spain, people are just getting […]

Amsterdam (1)

Amsterdam (1)

16:40 So, in amsterdam you can be high as shit and drive a scooter without a helmet on, using the bicycle tracks… Interesting… 18:22 Quick stop for a glass of french wine, to warm up and escape from this chilling wet cold outside. My brain is still adapting to the fact that in Amsterdam, it […]

Walking Barcelona

Walking Barcelona

Those 2 last days, I’ve been doing one of the thing I love the most doing in Barcelona: walk. Walk for hours, and hours, discovering all kinds of stuff, getting lost; I love getting lost in Barcelona. Years ago, it was somehow more exciting since I didn’t know the like I do today, and, there […]

Jo soc catala!

Jo soc catala!

It’s strange. My father is english, my passport is english, my mother from Galicia (spain). I was born and raised until 18 years old in france. My culture is french, my accent is french. But; I’ve never lived in England, I’ve never lived in Galicia. And after 18 years in Paris + 3 years in […]

Piano time: Steven, Alice Cooper

Let’s set the scene: I’ve never been teach piano; all I’m doing is applying my guitar chords knowledge to piano keys. Now, this song, Steven, by Alice cooper. Felt in love with the song like 18 years ago. Then, started doing my own version of it on the piano. From me to the public: can’t […]

Long walk day

Long walk day

16:00 Today is a day for doing simple things. Sleep several hours, eat soup, use public transportation and go to see and smell the sea, play piano, spend some good time with family and dogs. It’s a day for enjoying simple things, and most of all, to relax and forget about stress. In itself, being […]

The quest

The quest

Going for christmas presents for the family is all about stress. Well, once it’s done, from the moment you say “I got them all”, it’s all about relieve and excitation for giving them. But until this moment comes, one has to be able to think of the best presents, keeping the mind clear out of […]

My museum

My museum

From this place I call now “my parents house” to the train that goes to the center of Barcelona, there’s a path, surrounded by trees, silence and old stones, beautiful modernist houses and stories. These I build myself, with years of stepping the same road, whether for going to college, university, pubs, football matches, dates, […]

Growing

Growing

6 years ago, I still was “a guy that knows about photoshop and some dreamweaver”. I had been learning by myself web design and improving by doing works for close people. Let’s face it: I sucked. I actually didn’t know anything about this famous Helvetica thing. Then I said: man, time has come to study. […]

Friends feel good

Friends feel good

Feels so good to sit and talk with the old friends. New friends are nice, mine are very cool and I’m very thankful for meeting them. But those friends one has known for more than 10 years are something different; a difference that feels good, a difference that makes the difference in particular moments. Definitely […]
