My New Gypsy Pad

After 10 days of searching for the perfect flat, I´ve concluded that it´s impossible and I´ve rented the big room next to Sagrada Familia yesterday. It hasn´t been an easy decision but one I had to make rather sooner than later. For the last 10 days I´ve been staying with a friend of a friend who was nice enough to put me up, but I thought I´d only stay 2-3 days so even though they were very nice and understanding, I started to feel like I´m overstaying my welcome. 

Also, the flatsearch has been a rather frustrating process, as I told you before so after 10 days of looking at flats and loosing several because I preferred to look for a better one, I decided that I just have to pick up one for now and I can still change anytime I want in the future... right?

I know most of you recommended the smaller room next to the beach, but there are several, very important reasons why I felt like it was not the place for me. One of the most important contra was that in a tiny room, with a sinle bed (and no sleeping sofas in the living room) I could never had anyone coming over and as I already have 2 girlfriends wanting to visit before the end of the year it was just not suitable. Also, being home most of the day, it is indeed important to have a big room, not to mention I have no idea where I would have put all my stuff in that space. :) (Also let´s admit I´m a sissy and 4th floor without an elevator seemed to be a big climb on a daily basis ;)))

Anyway, my new place is like no places I´ve ever stayed before. It´s a real bohemienne artist space with art all over the place, furnished mostly with flea market finds. It´s not pretty, but very relaxed and I like my new flatmates so let´s see how it will all work out. I´m already staying here, but right now only in the guestroom as I can only move in my room on the 1st of November, but I cannot wait to pimp up the place a bit and share some pictures with you soon! It will be a real DIY and hopefully an amazing transformation! ;)

Stay tuned!
