Outfit Post: The Two Hundredth

Abandoned Building, Lanzarote

It’s here, folks! My two hundredth post!! If anyone has read from the beginning, thank you for listening to my constant rambles – you’re awesome! I wonder if one day my blog might end up like this abandoned restaurant building in Lanzarote. It was so eery walking by this place, sitting on a gorgeous rock beach looking out over a crisp blue sea; the perfect location. Everything seemed to have been left the way it was, beautiful flowers and trees still growing, fun murals for the ‘Mini Club’ as if you could almost hear the ghosts of times gone by. If someday I no longer update this blog, I like to think I’ll leave it published, floating through the internet as a ghost of what my life once was.

There’s something I find so fascinating about abandoned buildings. Kind of like the wondering of what happens to your soul after you die. I’m not particularly a religious person, but it seems like the soul is such a complex entity to just cease existing when our bodies do so I wonder the same about abandoned buildings – what happens to their souls? The stories seeping from the walls. It seems so abrupt for it all to just fade away so it feels as if the buildings are haunted, but not by beings, by memories.

As far as I can work out, the graffiti above reads, “Que bonito el tropezar, contigo peque” which after some research translates to something like, ‘How beautiful you stumble a little’ or ‘Nice to bump into you a little.’ If you know the actual meaning of this phrase, or anything about it, I would love to know! Please do share with us in the comments. I know graffiti is vandalism and I do disagree with it to a certain extent, but I just love it as a form of art. It’s so haphazard and raw and chaotic and free. I’d much rather stumble over something like this on a holiday or trip away than be herded around a tired tourist attraction. This was possibly the most interesting twenty minutes of my vacation!
