Creps Barcelona

On Monday I went to try this restaurant in Barcelona.
It's all about crêpes, you cannot imagine how many different types there are.
We ordered a menu of 9'5€ which included a drink, a salad and a crêpe. Ours were: one of sobrassada (sausage) and a fried egg and the other of 4 cheeses.
Above all, everything is delicious!
Where? Via Laietana 45, Barcelona

Feliç Sant Jordi!

Every 23rd of April in Catalonia we celebrate Sant Jordi's (George) Day.
I love this day so much, I think it's the most beautiful day of the year because the streets are crowded of people and stalls with plenty of books and roses.
This day here is similar to Sant Valentine's Day in the rest of the world meaning the love day. However, it's a tradition that men give roses to women and women give books to men.
Giving roses comes from Sant Jordi's legend: Sant Jordi killed a dragon who was going to eat a princess and from his blood a rosebush was born, then he cut a rose from it and gave it to the princess.
And we give books because the 23rd of April is also the Books Day and the date in which Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare died.

So today, if you are in Barcelona or other parts of Catalonia: 

Lovely photo from here.

American flavor

I went to New York in 2009 and fell in love with Hershey's!

So as the 6th of January we celebrate the Three Wise Men Day, this year my parents gave me this wonderful box (love the travel details) full of mainly chocolate from there!

I'm from Barcelona so they got all of these in a store (I still have to visit) called Taste of America.

My favorite...
