Next stop… the park!

My favourite locations to visit tend to be green spaces.

Parks within communities can be extremely special because they often illustrate innovative ways to use space and tend to exemplify different ways that people spend their leisure time.

My two favourite locations on my travels outside of Sweden have been:

Park Guell in Barcelona: Famous architect Antoni Gaudi worked on this beautiful park for 14 years before abandonning it. It was initially started as a commercial development project. The city acquired the property in 1918 after the project was deemed a failure. It was opened as a public park in 1922.



Basilica of the Sacred Heart (Basilique du Sacré-Cœur) in Paris: The basilica stands 129 meters above sea level on the Montmartre hill and offers a stunning view of Paris. On top of this, the sloped park leading up to the basilica presents an unbeatable opportunity to watch and relax with Parisians and tourists alike.
