My feet are dead. At the same time I’m in this constant state of bliss–Barcelona has my heart. hahaha I hope you aren’t rolling your eyes because I think I’ve said “i love” to about everything and every place I’ve been too. Today we continued to explore and see the wide span of this wonderful city by foot! and taking many pictures. Just a forward–when trying to pick out pictures for this post, I tried to limit the selfie count to as minimal as possible, but I can’t deny the somewhat excessiveness *shys from computer*. I wanted to be captured next to the most beautiful parts, but the number of those is un-countable…therefore…many pictures
As I said we walked the stone streets from Cataluyna to Gotic to the Port (i’ll explain more!), and did quite a lot of shopping 😀 It is so lively here.
We saw one of Gaudi’s buildings in the main city, Casa Batlló…preview for more of his work later in this post!
Farmer’s market – ‘Mercat St. Jospeh La Boqueria. I’ve been to a couple farmer’s markets in other countries, and other than the Bazaar in Instabul, this is probably the most memorable. So colorful and vibrant-these peoples’ goods are like artwork. I think this is about half of the pictures that I took.
We grabbed lunch here and then headed for the port side
and then to Gòtic, or Gothic side of town
We were pretty tired after all this walking, so we went back to the hotel to take a 30min siesta and then back out to the streets! We did some more shopping down on the opposite side of Las Ramblas, and then took a cab to the famous Gaudi House
This is a must see if you ever come to Barcelona. We didn’t go inside, but we wandered the expansive outside land full of the most abstract architecture, and blooming gardens.
We ran into our Italian friends from yesterday! Their bands called ‘Rolling Strunzi’-literally the sweetest things ❤ ❤ ❤ I’m in love!
They sang a song for us…DYING…It was about a man who meets a woman and starts to fall in love, and then she goes away, leaving him alone. I wanted to attach a clip, but I’m unsure how to do so yet /: haha
Another picture of the streets
Ended with sunset at Placa de Catalunya..
We we’re pretty exhausted so we decided to turn in early at 9pm, had dinner and currently sitting by the balcony-listening to the spanish music playing from below!
Don’t know the plan for tomorrow! Just going to go with the flow…and then blog about it of course 🙂
