Summer is here (although it's been a very rainy and grey month here in Stockholm) and I've been doing lots and lots! Mostly outdoor and abroad activities. We went to Spain for a week and did the whole city sightseeing thing and shopping in Barcelona and later took the train down to the sunny coast for a couple of days of beach, siesta and good food. 

First day in Barcelona and I am happy as a peach!

Found this beautiful oasis right in the middle. 

Found camera heaven in the shop Lomography. 
As you might know, I have a small collection of cameras myself...

So I knew I had to have one of these beauties!

I settled with this analog camera La Sardina with beautiful purple pattern. 

Spent my afternoons on the beach.

Talking to Emil, the blind cat with a big smile.

Ate a very berry overloaded cake that my sister made. Yum!

I'm still stuffed from all the good food and desserts...

Hopefully I'll soon be able to show you some of the illustrations I've been working on lately as well. I haven't had the time to doodle at all as my latest illustrations has been for various projects but I'm getting there! 
I'm catching up! :)

How's your summer so far?

Happy Summer to you...I love Spain ...love Barcelona...last time I was there we went to Mont Serrat...did you go? Hugs and kisses to you two talented sisters. My summer so far is a lot like before summer, still a lot of work and ongoing construction but I suppose I am in a better mood. xxx

I did not know about Mont Serrat but I googled it and I'm kind of sad I've missed it... but I probably visit Barcelona again in a not too far away future. Thanks for the recommendation :)
I do hope you'll get some time off to breathe in new air and also get new ideas. Important stuff to keep balanced (things I sometimes forget) :)

Oh, I've always wanted to travel to Barcelona ... perhaps someday, in the meantime I've so enjoyed your post.

Happiness always
