We visited Barcelona last November. It was a glorious trip! Somewhere between our hotel in Barcelona & the nearest subway station, we found a lovely riot of colorful graffiti / street art adorning the walls. We visited Barcelona to celebrate Mr. A’s birthday & had an awesome time eating the most amazing tapas and visiting the La Sagrada Familia, amongst other places. Happy reading!
While holidaying in Barcelona last month we went all in, in terms of food. We threw the calorie-caution to the wind and tried all sorts of yummy foods. From restaurants to cafes and hotel breakfasts to open markets, we left nothing untested. And each time, we were rewarded with extremely happy tummies & elated taste-buds! Here’s a sneak-peak for you…I’m sure you won’t have the heart, or the stomach, to look away 😉

¨Let there be light!¨ Now, where could that be more fitting than in a church, right?
Light seeping in through the stained glass windows at La Sagrada Família adds another ethereal dimension to this very unique church. Started in 1882, this massive architectural project with intricately carved facades and sculptured towers, is projected to be completed by the year 2026. That year will also mark the centennial of the death of its architect, Antoni Gaudí, who was pivotal in the growth of Modernism school of design and architecture. The building work continues to this day by the support of anonymous donations and ticket sales. It’s a design masterpiece and a must-see if you visit Barcelona. The official website has a wealth of information to help out visitors.
I’d love to hear what you think about my previous photo challenge entries, you can find them here!
Feels like I have been away from here for ages. That’s because we took a break to go to Barcelona, yay! It was the mister’s birthday, plus a weekend, moreover we had not taken off in a while, so all in all, we had good reasons to fly off & see a new place. That’s a passion we both share. We are forever making endless lists of places to see & things to do, once we ultimately get there! I’ll soon tell you all about the grand sights we saw in Barcelona. But right now, here’s wishing my guy a Super Happy Birthday!
