Hello my loves,
I hope you're doing all well. Yeah, I know, it's been such a while huh. I'm so sorry I have abandoned my blog, but hey I'm back :)
I don't even know where to start, I guess a lot happened,uhm actually, not that much, since I've just been working all summer hehe. Wich implies btw that I haven't been able to go back to Vietnam, like I usually do every summer *stillCrying* :( lol.
But, having a student/summer job is a good thing anyway, you gain experience, and it's how you learn to be more independant I suppose.
Anyway, I still got a little break before uni courses start, so I went to Barcelona. It was the perfect moment to leave Paris, since it was pouring all day long there.
Well, enough of talking, I let you take a look at the photos^^.
The Arc de Triomf was built in 1888 for the Exposición Universal de Barcelona. It was created in the Mudéjar style and has reddish brickwork. Josep Vilaseca, a Modernista architect, designed the arch which features many reliefs and statues. The arch was built as an entrance to the exposition being held at the Parc de la Ciutadella. It is one of Barcelona’s most iconic landmarks.
The Sagrada Familia is one of the most famous landmarks in Barcelona.The church in the district Eixample is being built since 1882, and is supposed to be finished in 2026. From 1883 the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí took over the leadership of the works until his death in 1926. The building is significantly influenced by him.
Casa Batlló is a renowned building located in the center of Barcelona and is one of Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces. A remodel of a previously built house, it was redesigned in 1904 by Gaudí and has been refurbished several times after that.
Very typical for the Modernisme, the Catalan Art Nouveau, is the return to natural elements which you can discover in this building.
The entire facade is cluttered with flowers, the gently curving balconies of the Casa Batllo remind of the waves of the sea.
