“Pounding the pavement, kicking through the streets. To wander like Picasso in the Barcelona heat.”
Buenos tardes mi amigos! After a week of fun in the sun and sangria in my cup, I am ready to tell you all about my adventures. But first, I’ve composed a list of all of the places that I traveled to…
- Park Guell, made of Gaudi’s architecture
- Barri Gotic
- Casa Mila, designed by Gaudi
- Las Ramblas
- Casa Batllo, designed by Gaudi
- Museu Picasso
- La Sagrada Familia
- Dali Museum
- Jewish Quarters
- Girona Cathedral
My favorite part of the trip was being able to speak Spanish. Out of the three languages that I am fluent in, I strongly believe that I speak Spanish the best, yes, even beating out English. I felt like I was at home and actually was understood, which has been a struggle in some of the other countries I’ve been to recently.
The next fantastic thing would be the art. As by now, you know I am an art junkie, and I was able to go to the Picasso museum, which was breathtaking in itself, but I’ll explain more on that later this week!
I love champagne and am on a constant champagne campaign, but it would be sinful to spend my time in Spain and not have sangria with every meal. (Don’t worry mom, I didn’t drink it at breakfast.) In my next post, I’ll give you some insight on the best places in Barcelona to get this magnificent drink.
I got to explore so many different museums and strut like I meant it with my favorite girls. Thanks Cheetah Girls 2, you truly depicted the beauty of Barcelona, got my hopes up, and then did not let me down at all.
Even though I may not be Galleria and happened upon my Angel while roaming the Spanish countryside, I can’t complain much. Especially knowing my “Angel” will be abroad with me in no time at all! Stay tuned in the upcoming week for getting a more personal insight on my time in Barca!
