Hi, I am Ioana, and I like to travel. Over the years, I have called ‘home’ several cities across Europe including Lisbon, Bilbao, Amsterdam and Milan, until I fell in love in Barcelona, where I am based for the third time now. I have a twelve-years background in architecture, and I like to capture nice stories, patterns and colours around me. And to live by the sea.

Mediterranean Charm. Sant Pol de Mar

Sant Pol de Mar is at about 40 minutes by train from Barcelona, on the coast of Maresme. The place has a bit of everything: narrow winding streets, medieval churches, Modernist mansions, places with good food, pine-covered hills and, above all, ten beaches to its name.

My Barrio. Carrer de València

I am fortunate to live close enough to some of the architectural wonders of the city. These ones are actually on my street, just a few blocks away, so here is a glimpse into my post-confinement daily walks.
