1 Month in Barcelona

Posted on by Katherine

Most of our days in Barcelona, as has become our habit, are spent quietly working away in Nettle. We often joke that we live a normal life, like anybody else, except the view out our window changes.

We moved on from Islington, and went … Continue reading
