Two weeks ago I went with a lot of friends to the Halloween Special of the Heide Park. We had a very special occasion. not only was it Carinas birthday, it was also the last time we would all be together before Nici and Carina would go to Japan for a year. So I really wanted to go. I didn't have time to come up with a practical dress up though that would last a whole day, so I said I would be the photographer. Actually it was so much fun for me that I'm very satisfied with that job.
We were afraid of rain because the weather report predicted that but nothing came down from the clouds. We were there very very early though and I don't go into the big looping things, but thankfully I wasn't the only one. So most of the day before 4 pm we just went around the park and tried various things, made photos, did picknicks.
Around 4pm the Halloween programme of the Heide Park started. There started to be fog everywhere and when it was dark, the zombies came out and shocked us. They also had some paths you could walk where they jump out of somewhere and spook you. Even I went along one and screamed quite loudly. What I mostly liked was that the loopings where still open and sometimes between all the fog and zombies you could hear the people scream. The atmosphere was really amazing.
Some photos where made by Jenn. It was really such a great day and I'm really excited for Nici and Carina that are now in Japan. We will miss you!
Tommorrow I will have a Halloween Party with my friend May and I really can't wait. Of course there will be photos.

ThursdayThat day we went up Montjuic, that's a small mountain with a big park, museums and the olympic stadium of Barcelona. We just wanted to walk randomly around and enjoy the weather which was surprisingly hot. There were few spots where you could perfectly see the whole city. And also the sea.
We walked a lot again and I think my feet hurt like the day before. We also found the greek theatre and spend some time sitting there, looking around and imagining all the people who might have sat there in older times. I had my first sunburn that day because I didn't expect the sun to be that strong and I left my sunscreen in the hostel.
In the evening we just sat outside at the hostel on the terrasse and enjoyed the evening air, had some good pasta and wine.
We stood up very early and went to the beach. We planned a dream day and we actually got one. The whole day we spend at the beach and didn't do much but laying around lazily, reading, sleeping, swimming.
This time I had my sunscreen with me and also put it on several times because a tiny dermatologist was sitting on my shoulder telling me I should protect my sensible skin. Good decision. I good a little sunburn, but not so bad as it could be. I even got some healthy colour.
It was sad that it was the last day though. We had such a beautiful trip and I fell in love with Barcelona. I definately want to come back. Maybe I will learn some catalan before that.
I want to thank Marie for this wonderful trip. I think that it was really good for us and that we celebrated love and life in our own way. I love you very much!
