Hey Darlings!

This is post nr. 100 on the Barcelomia blog! Wow! I started this blog 5 months ago to document my preparation for my Barcelona move.. and well... let's just say a lot happened since! :)

I'm not moving to Barcelona just yet and I decided to take on a new direction with my blog a couple of weeks ago when I renamed it to Gypsy*Diaries. With post nr. 100 I think it's time for (yet another) change!

As Gypsy*Diaries are evolving and I am starting to have more and more lovely followers... (thank you so much, you would never know how much it means to me right now and how happy I am seeing you coming by day by day.) I decided that Gypsy*Diaries deserves a new home! (Haha isn't that ironic that even my blog is travelling constantly :))

I'll leave this blog on blogger for people looking for info on Barcelona, but I'll be posting all my travel, fashion, design and lifestyle related posts in the new blog!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE If you were following me until now, change your links and come over to the updated and fabulous Gypsy*Diaries and if you just found me please come over and take a look! :) I'd love you to comment and follow me if you like my site!

So Ladies and Gentlemen thanks for everything so far! Please come over to my new blog home and continue supporting me on my journey!

Gran Tourismo - Barcelona

I just recently heard of a fabulous project called Gran Tourismo.

In 2010, globetrotting travel writers Lara Dunston and Terence Carter, in partnership with HomeAway Holiday-Rentals, will trade hotel rooms for holiday homes as they embark on a contemporary grand tour of the globe. They’ll be travelling slowly, living like locals, doing and learning things, and giving something back at each destination they visit. Their mission is to explore more enriching and authentic ways of travelling, and make travel more meaningful and more memorable.

You can follow their journey on their blog, I'll certainly do! :)

So far they've visited Dubai, London, Marrakesch, Essaouira, Madrid, Jerez and right now they are in BARCELONA!!!

I really enjoyed their posts this week from Barna on their new home, on shopping, tasty souvenirs, melted chocolate, old shop fronts, cocktails, tortillas and locals

P.S: Stay tuned, I have some big NEWS coming up later today! :)

Have a Happy Weekend!

Are you doing anything fun this weekend? I'll keep detoxing, running, will go on a quick trip to Budapest to visit some family and will go on long walks in the sun to make some photos! :)

Have a Happy Weekend, Spring is finally here!

Gypsy*Friday - Amsterdam*The Netherlands

After my summer in Sevilla, I enrolled in a double degree BA program in the Budapest Business School and the Dutch Avans University. As part of the program we had to spend 6 months in The Netherlands.
Oh Boy, best six months of my life! :) Crazy parties, great new friends, cute boys, bikes, lots of travelling, windmills, wooden shoes, tulips... what's not to love? Have you ever been an exchange student abroad? Most people will tell you that it's the best experience you can have in life!

Killer Shoes by Sonia Rykiel

So on my big shopping trip last weekend I bought these killer pair of shoes and I love them! My girlfriend said they were the ugliest shoes she's ever seen :) but goodness I'm so tall in them and they are so comfy! :) What do you say? Like or dislike?

P.S: I'm tiny and my boyfriend is probably the tallest guy I've ever met so I definately need these! :)

Run 2

You remember that scene in Yes Man when Zooey Deschanel takes Jim Carrey on a run with her photography group? (If you haven't seen the movie, you seriously have to! one of the funniest movies of all times) That scene inspired me to take my camera with me on run nr 2. :) Well I did feel like an idiot making pictures while running, but I have to say I'm pretty impressed with some of the results! (and man my quadriceps is killing me today!) Running starts to be a little fun...

In July I'm going to....

Quote of the day

Food things

Vintage food poster for my future kitchen, you can buy it here

HaHa... no I'm not thinking of food now that I can't have it at all! :D
But seriously day one of detox is done and I am feeling good. Thanks for the sweet and concerned comments about me starving, but actualy I do eat a lot... but only fruits and veggies and seeds. I'm excited to follow through and share the experiences with you!

Now about running... I did it! After a loooong preparation of dressing up, finding my ipod and finally leaving, I went for the first real run of my life and it was waaay better than I expected. Foo Fighters in my ear I ran through a bridge, made a round in the park than back home in 20 minutes! :) Ok I was walking half the time but this is a start! :D

and now... day 2

Tuesday, March 23, 2010


As it's spring and I'm preparing for the Tunisia trip, I though it's the perfect time to do a 10-day detox, refresh and loose a couple of pounds. I don't believe in not eating at all, but I do believe in eating and drinking only good things. In the next 10 days I'll be eating only fruits, vegetables and seeds and I'll splash it down with loads of water and herbal tea. I'll also pick my exercise routine up a notch. I go to the gym 3-4 times a week, but in the next 10 days I'm commiting to running every single day too. This will be extremely difficult as I hate running, but I hope it's one of those things that you'll get to like if you do it enough. So keep your fingers crossed for me! I need all the support that I can get. (I don't think I emphasized enough how much I HATE running :)

My breakfast:

My lunch: (without the feta of course :)

My dinner:

{Sunflower seeds}

My snacks:

... and now I must go for a run... must go must go must go...

In 10 days I'm going to...

My Happy Weekend

Some weekends are dull, some are sleepy but this one was full of action and I couldn't be more happy about that. I've been camping in my home town for a while now (at my moms place), spending most of my time in PJs in front of the computer, but this weekend I decided to visit some friends and do a big-spring-shopping-spree in Budapest.

You know when I go shopping often, I can resist to buy, but when I don't go for a while and everything is new, I just go completely crazy.... :) 8 hours non stop shopping seems to be my physical limit by the way.... and I still have bruises on my shoulder from carrying the heavy bags.... anyhow, there is nothing better after an exhausting day of spending than meeting up with old friends in a nice little restaurant (Vapiano in this case) and drinking a glass of wine (... or two).

While in the city, I found out that some of my high school classmates (most of whom I haven't met since we were 18) are organising a spring welcoming party in a nearby village. I almost didn't go but in the end we had a blast. We were cooking outside, playing games (we, girls hid some chocolate eggs and the boys had to find them :), telling stories and catching up. I love spring!

And last but not least, I spent Sunday with my mum at the local travel fair. I'll be booking two holidays this week. Let me keep the destinations secret a little bit longer, but both places are in Africa... :) yuppieee
