To live atop a mountain, adjacent to a magnificent castle, overlooking endless rows of pearly white and golden yachts, among the cascading waterfalls, a couple dozen feet beneath the clouds, and between the brightly colored rows of endless corridors, cafes, and courtyards, is a dream. These walkways are not only filled with color, but also with life; that contagious buzz achieved on a daily basis due to the continuous cycle of both native and fleeting visitors seeking a glimpse into the very heart and soul of Monte Carlo. Although the roots of culture run thick almost solely within the Palais walls, there still remains a strong sense of heritage that is unweary throughout our tiny town- if you can call it that. Our village is one who’s views are only enhanced by those who come to marvel at them. As locals, we are surrounded by endless waves of people we will most likely never again lay eyes on, yet each one leaves an imprint on our soul up here in Palais Princier, as not once have we seen someone leave unsmiling, or anything other than charmingly amazed. And for this, I am grateful to call Monte Carlo my home.

I must preface this by informing you that I will not be your typical blogger. I am currently a student studying abroad, with high prospects of becoming a journalist. My posts will be random, yet pointed, and I am going to share everything with you. (And it may not all be entirely appropriate, so beware.) That's the way I was raised, and the way I like to be. My friends are like that too. Another thing you need to know about me is that if you're reading this- I don't really care. No offense. It's not about an attitude thing, although my mom always told me I had one. It's about being real- we need more of that. The realness that comes with someone not worrying about anyone else's opinion. This is purely a written account of what I am to discover, but it's not about me. It's devoted to others- to you. To the urban population of Barcelona, and the wonders and woes of those willing to share a touch of their lives with us. My goal is to share those stories. We are all here to life one another up. I strive to discover how to do this on a daily basis, regardless of whether it's for a stranger or a friend. This seems like a good place to start, because my current timing and location are prime. Being in Barcelona is a blessing. Such is each day. We all [should] want to make a change in the world. However small, ensure that it is a positive one. Some last words of wisdom for you: Stay humble. Be honest. Put yourself out there. Don't hold back. We are all human. Ver todas las entradas de humansofbarcelona
