#ProjectFlashPiction Day 9: Barcelona

09:28 Posted by Cindy Wong Dela Cruz No comments

     It was an ambitious dream but today marks the 365th day of this journey. Even I can't believe that it has taken me this long since I packed my bags and bought that one-way ticket to as far away as possible.
     I try to allocate the time to watch the sunset every evening. It has become an obsession just to sit down and observe life and time passed by with a cold mojito in one hand. This time, I am in Barcelona and tomorrow will leave for Madrid. The man who took the only available seat spoke. I always have guys trying to get my attention; my entire aura probably shouts out loud that I am a single naive traveler. I got tired of shoving them away. I realized it has become inevitable. They all tried to please me with sweet, silly words, and I would pretend to believe them. I would tell them a different name each time and yet they forget the second they bid goodbye. Now the man in front of me looks no different: rolled up sleeves and unbuttoned shirt. He offered to refill my drinks. I refused. "I need to catch the early train tomorrow."
     "Train to Madrid?" I nodded. 
     "The 8 am one." 
     "I will be on the same train too."

Project Flash Piction is an everyday writing project by KB Meniado based on pictures. The photo above was taken in Barceloneta beach. I decided to take a break from the strange things happening in Spring City. Let's have some romance stuff for this week?

About Me

My photo

I love traveling and being immersed with different cultures. It has cultivated my love for learning and has exposed me to different perspectives. I'm a travel specialist during the day, while writing has always been my first love (considering my love of books, of course). I am an editor of Lapis sa Kalye (Hindi ito ang normal mong nababasa)**a Facebook page which promotes Philippine Literature, one of the writers of the published book - **PENDULUM. I was also the Editor in Chief of our online magazine which published free literary works. I also post my works in Wattpad reaching more than 70k reads.

And when I need a real breather, I take pictures and edit them. I'm still developing my style in this area, I don't usually follow Photography rules, I just try to have fun along the way.
