Husband and I have just returned ( roasted and baked) from our trip to Barcelona and Madrid. We were joined by friends in Barcelona who left for France after and we made our way to Madrid. I am grateful to be travelling so much around Europe. I am grateful too for sunny skies, perfect weather, good food and for friends who made this trip so much better!
Here are some photographs of my trip to Barcelona, minus Gaudi for that will make for another post!
Sunny skies and a gorgeous beaches, whats not to like? As our taxi driver famously said....this is where the beach starts and goes all the way up to France! I should have asked for his name.
Where there aren't tourists, there are old people sitting outside, on the benches, soaking up the sun!
Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau
There were beautiful street performances at every corner! This man was playing El Condor Pasa by Simon and Garfunkel, it is the song I play to reset my systems, every now and again.
The nighlife is buzzing in Barcelona with many night clubs by the beach overflowing with Sangrias, Mojitos and Tapas. Food was generally good everywhere, however I have had better tapas in London and no other city beats the London food scene in my humble opinion.
Find some of Gaudi's work in my next post! See you later. Oh and we went for a day trip to Sitges, beautiful!
Psst...no, Zara and Mango are not around the corner, at every corner, this mind is a funny little thing :)
