PA1 My Environment


The place I’ve chosen is the second floor of Starbucks, where I spend most of my time.

This Starbucks is located in the center of Valencia.

Passeig de Russafa, 1, 46004 Valencia, Valencia

The second floor is quite spacious. At first glance, it may seem that it is a bit dark here, but in fact, the space is filled with light. The windows offer a magnificent view of the main square of Valencia. There are usually few people here and therefore it is quiet, which is unusual for Spain.

Why did you choose this place?

I fell in love with this place at first sight! This is probably the only place in Valencia where I feel at home because of a similar atmosphere. In Belarus, my home country, people are constantly working to achieve a lot in life. And here, too, even on the earliest Sunday morning, you can find people working on their laptops.

What makes you comfortable?

I feel safe here. As an introvert, it is very difficult for me to find a place where I would feel protected from other people. I guess it’s because of the dark design. The twilight calms me down. I can also sit by the window, enjoy the architecture of the city, watch people who are going somewhere, dream about something, and be sure that they do not see me.


There is some disruptive element?

(what is disruptive?)

Do you think you’d feel the same way in another space right now?

I’m sure not! This is a special atmosphere! Nowhere else will I feel the same as here, even in Belarus!

Do you think that the conditions of this space influence its occupants? How?

I guess it really does. Every time I come here, first of all, I want to be quiet so as not to disturb anyone, and I also want to sit down at my laptop and start doing things. The atmosphere makes me work! I’m definitely getting motivated!

Would you change anything?

Not at the moment! I do not see anything that I would like to change immediately.
