Pic of the week: some memories

Written by David/Photos by Michelle & David

Today, let’s get just a tiny bit serious for a minute.

Being abroad is a very rewarding experience. New cultures to explore, new languages to learn and new ways to open our minds. I’m sure those of you that find yourself in this situation can agree with me, am I right? Anyone?

We also know that being elsewhere implies missing and being missed. Sometimes, memory flashes come to my mind of the day I packed my first suitcase with everything I owned and left my family and friends in Spain for my first new home away from home, some 10 years ago already.

I also remember that I was carrying a bunch of familiar pictures with me and one of them was similar to today’s Pic of the Week for its proximity to where I was born.

Do you have a picture or an item that reminds you of home and that you pack no matter where you live in the world? Let us know in the comments section, we would love to hear from you!

If you’re curious and want to know more about this picture, stay with me and continue reading!

Today I bring to you a classical view of the cathedral of Girona, Spain, taken from one of the historical bridges across the Onyà river. Even if this is an iconic sight of the city that appears in the camera rolls of many tourists, the most interesting fact here is that it is taken from a metal bridge that was originally designed by Gustave Eiffel just before the commission of his lifetime masterpiece, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.

This bridge offers the perfect perspective with the Cathedral and the block buildings of the old quarter of Girona reflected on the waters of the Onyà river.
