Barcelona, Spain Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona, Spain






I’m back! I missed you guys, and thank you for staying around (and catching up with me on Instagram) while I was out and about. I’m back from my vacation and boy oh boy, this vacation was one for the books.
Barcelona was absolutely BEAUTIFUL.

I’ve been to other cities in Spain before (Madrid, Cordoba, Seville, Ronda, Costa del Sol, Granada, and Toledo) but it was my first time to visit Barcelona. I was mesmerized by the entire place. I did my research and talked to plenty of friends and family for advice on things to do and see and eat, so I had quite a few things on my list. Top of the list, of course, is food.

Like my last trip to Spain, I ate jamon iberico everyday. Salty, silky, with an intense luxuriousness and a nutty aftertaste – it was pure perfection. I also ate chorizo everyday, mostly as a montadito from tapas bars, or from the little snack cones sold all over the city. Here’s a quick Spanish food glossary: tapas are snacks (small plates), pintxos are small bites on sticks, and montaditos are food on bread, or little open faced sandwiches.
I went on vacation with two of my girl friends, Fe and Mildred, but I’ll spare you the three dozen selfies we took … except for one or two.

Barcelona to me is synonymous with Antoni Gaudi, the famous architect known for Spanish/Catalan Modernism and his free-flowing style influenced by nature. His work is all over Barcelona, and it is exquisite. The picture above is but a small part of Parc Guell, a breath-taking public park.
Parc Guell reminds me of a Dr. Seuss world, but even more better. The tile mosaics were just incredible and there was just so much attention to detail in every nook and cranny.
Gaudi’s work was my favorite part of my trip, and my pictures do not justice to the beauty and madness of his architecture. I do not subscribe to minimalism so all these colors and wild shapes appeal to me.

We checked out Casa Batllo, a Modernist museum right in the center of Barcelona. Just look at that amazing tile-covered facade! And we went to La Pedrera or Casa Mila just a few blocks away. I greatly enjoyed the rooftop of La Pedrera, and kept gawking at these sculptures above because they remind me of storm troopers. But Gaudi didn’t make these as a nod to Star Wars, they are actually ventilation ducts on top of the roof, meant to resemble roman soldiers.
We also went to the Sagrada Familia, another Gaudi masterpiece. The large Roman Catholic church was started in 1882 and is still not finished to this day. It is expected to be completed in 2026. It was the most intricately designed church I have ever seen (and I’ve seen a lot of churches!)

There was so much to see (and eat) in Barcelona, and the entire place just pulses with character. The city comes alive at night, and my friends and I frequented La Rambla, a street lined with restaurants, bars, and shops. We walked everywhere, too, from the Gotic and Jewish quarters, the market...
