...because summer IS beachside eating...

... just south of Barcelona is my favourite chiringuito. Perched on the cliff overlooking the beach it is the perfect place to take a break from the sun and enjoy lunchtime tapas.  This is La Vida Dulce!

...because anytime is a good time to visit Vinçon...

... my favourite tienda (shop) on Paseo de Gracia, which always has something new and interesting for the house! Never what you need, always what you want!

...because Summer starts with the Damm video...

 Estrella Damm 2014

...while the official start of summer is the 23rd June, the real start is when the annual Estrella Damm, Mediterranen summer video is released! Every year different and every year capturing a different aspect of the ideal Mediterranean summer life. It reminds me why I am here, (the lifestyle, not the beer!)

..because my best Barcelona friend swam the Strait of Gibraltar...

...and I got to go alongside him as support crew.  17kilometers in 4hours 27minutes, non stop! An amazing achievement that I was lucky enough to be part of! Back to Barcelona now... by plane!
