On Tuesday Luca and I were lucky to attend one of the coolest festivals in Switzerland, Paleo. Being there brought back so many memories – when I was a teenager I used to spend an entire week there every year with my friends, and we had the most amazing time. Paleo is all about two things for me: music and food.
Music wise, this time we got to see two bands that I really like: The Lumineers and Muse. I did know The Lumineers but not very well, you know it’s the kind of band that I liked but would probably not have gone to see live if it was just them. Since they were programmed for the day we went to Paleo we decided to go see them and oh my, they are awesome! It’s the perfect indie sound. Their music made me feel so good and fulfilled.
And then Muse… Muse is one of my all time favorite bands (if not my favorite). I love their music so much. It’s so unique and it is filled with so many emotions. I have no words to describe how they make me feel – somehow their songs go straight to my soul. It’s like I am crying inside, but in a good way, you see. Anyway. Muse was awesome, obviously.
Last but not least: the foooood! Paleo offers SO many possibilities! There are hundreds of stalls to choose from, with food from all over the world. Luca and I went for Indian food – it’s one of our favorites. I guess you got my point: we had an amazing night!
Thank you Paleo for having us, we had lots of fun and we’ll definitely be back next year :)

We do travel to Barcelona quite often, but it’s rather rare for us to stay for more than just a few days. This time we decided to spend an entire week in the spanish city, in order to have time to explore a bit more.
If I’m completely honest, the beaches in Barcelona are nowhere near as beautiful as the ones in Sardegna – I think we should have booked our trips the other way round! Despite that, it was still a pleasure to spend some time in Barcelona. We discovered new areas we had never seen before, we had time to try new restaurants as well as grab a coffee with our french friends Safia and Guilhem.
One of my favorite discoveries was Brunch & Cake, a superyummy brunch place offering lots of plant based options, that were as good as they were nice to look at. If you’re ever in Barcelona, I highly recommend stopping by! Their açai bowl is incredible.

My current favourites
While on holidays I started reading a book called The Opposite of Loneliness. It’s a collection of short stories written by former Yale student Marina Keegan – and it was SO GOOD. Her writing is so pure and genuine. I found the stories to be entertaining, but also a little bit more than that. Keegan managed to transcribe feelings on the paper like very few authors do – she put words on emotions so real yet so hard to define.
My favorite essays of hers are The Opposite of Loneliness (which gave its title to the book) and Why we care about whales. It was a bit of a bittersweet discovery, as Keegan sadly passed away a few years ago.. She was so young, and I am sure she would have been an amazing author – the few pieces of work she left behind are incredibly good and unique.
Anyway, I just thought I’d share these with you guys, because I really enjoyed reading them and I thought you might too :)
