Bazbina, Lebanon by Dear LauraBeino, Lebanon by Dear LauraBazbina, Lebanon by Dear LauraBeino, Lebanon by Dear Laura
I spent my last two weeks in the countryside in northern Lebanon, visiting both my grandmas, picking figs, chasing sunsets and as always, snapping photos. And fortunately we've been very lucky with the weather; not too hot during the day and a bit cool at night, just the way I like it. I think I've enjoyed the countryside this time around more than the past couple of years for some reason. Maybe because the weather was perfect? Or maybe it's because I've been away for too long? Who knows.

Anyway... I'm back in Beirut now, currently blogging from my bedroom! I took so many photos since I've arrived but I've been trying to spend less time on my computer this summer – especially since most of my studies involve a computer – and make the most out of my remaining two weeks in Lebanon, visiting family, catching up with friends and taking in as much natural vitamin D as I can before heading back to Paris!

Weekend Reading

Window Seat, Paris by Dear Laura
Left the rain back in Paris and made it to sunny Beirut! It feels so good being back in Lebanon and getting to spend some time with my family and childhood friends. Before sharing a couple of snaps from Beirut, here's what I've enjoyed reading (and watching) this week.
Happy Sunday!

Barcelona Photo Diary

Barcelona by Dear Laura
Barcelona by Dear Laura
Wee! Sorry for taking so much time to post these. Once I got back from Barcelona, I had to finish writing my research internship report (which I handed in only yesterday), and do some last minute shopping before heading to Beirut.

I loved everything about this city. It reminded me so much of Beirut because of its mediterranean weather and the tapas, which are very much like the Lebanese mezza. I stayed at my best friend's place in the Gothic quarter (thanks, India!); it was close to most of the tourist sites and the metro station which is very easy to use, so if you're planning on visiting Barcelona, I'd recommend finding a place in this area. If you're traveling by yourself, I can reassure you Barcelona is one of the friendliest cities in the world. The first two days, I visited a couple of places by myself, all on foot, while India was at work, and despite my poor Spanish and no Catalan, I managed to get by in the lovely Catalonian capital. More photos after the jump!
