Prague and Franz Kafka’s castle

To go to Prague has been a dream of mine for quite some time. Fortunately the dream has now turned into memories.

Two of my favourite authors are born in Czechia : Kafka and Kundera.  And Kafka,  the one I have been obsessed about for years,  lived in Prague and still haunts the city today, but I might do a little post about him since he was my travel buddy during the trip. I promise I haven’t gone insane 😉

Anyway, Prague is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen but it is also one of the most densely populated with tourists, a piece of advice : wake up early to see the bridge and the castle when there isn’t to much crowd.

The castle is incredible, it is supposed to be where Kafka found his inspiration for the novel “the castle”. Walking in his footsteps, remembering the book, I can see how.

Soon I’ll be back in Spain for a few day so I thought that it might be time to put this one here.

It reminds me of a very good period last year when I had the chance to travel a bit in France and Spain and to see some of my best friends.

Luckily next month might be similar, which makes me very impatient. I’m often frustrated not being able to see my best friends more than once or twice each year but that also makes it more special when it happens.

So yeah, can’t wait!

A reminder from Paris

Here is a little reminder from a recent weekend I’ve spent in Paris with one of my best and oldest friends.

I found this view of the eiffel tower vey fitting since it’s taken from the Palais de Tokyo where we were the night before for a DJ set.

But mostly, to me, it would represent how influential he was, and still is. Being one of the triggers for my newly found outgoing personnality.  Making me face and confront at least some aspects of reality, and generally helping me better myself while I’m still as annoying as ever 😀

Obviously, I was just trying to illustrate a good moment and a nice view when I started it but we can always find new meanings to our creations right ?

Fauna : Oh my deer

I’m not very active here recently but I haven’t stopped drawing.

I’ve also been trying new things, this one is an example made for a dear (no pun intended)  friend of mine.

It is such bliss to have someone like that in one’s life, without her I wouldn’t have had half the learning curve I had those last few years and I probably wouldn’t love drawing as much.

Beatrice ed Virgilio

Engravings based on a drawing I did for the challenges of Tangomiva.

It reminds me of a few things I could think about forever.

Happy sankta Lucia, Because this day is a reminder that even though it doesn’t look like it, the future is the promise of brighter things to come. Well to me, tomorrow will be about one such wonder anyway.

Street=Art : Berlin

The last stop of my “summer vacations tour” just after one that I haven’t shown you yet.

Berlin is a cool city especially when the light is dim and the sun has left to let the moon shine. But this doesn’t means that there aren’t some interesting thing to see during the day.

Street=Art : Pau

During my succession of travel this summer I went to Pau, a city in the south west of France.

There I’ve spent some time with one of my best friends who owns a page about how she discovers the city day by day since she moved there.

You really should take a look : The city is beautiful and the blog is both interesting and very educational. Actually she wrote an article about the castle you see in my drawing

It is called Pau 365 and you can visit it right HERE

Be sure to give her a like!
