    October 25, 2016 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 66 °F

    Although we visited Barcelona before, we wanted to make a quick stop there to visit our friend Alex. It's always nice to have a chance to meet up with friends along the way and is even nicer to have a local take you to the best places in town.

    Alex took us to enjoy some tapas and sangria our first night there which were really delicious! And the next day Mitch and I spent walking around to our favorite places we had visited while there last time. Our favorite place in the city is the La Sagrada Familia a cathedral built originally by the famous architect Gaudi. The cathedral which is still being finished today displays Gaudi's work of modernism which is pretty detailed and amazing, unlike any cathedral we've seen in Europe!

    It was a quick stop but a fun one which made us appreciate and like the city even more this time!

    Barcelona I

    May 31, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Nachdem wir gestern spontan in der früh nach Barcelona gestartet sind, stehen wir jetzt an einem schönen Campingplatz südlich von Barcelona. Mit dem Bus braucht man 30 Min bis ins Zentrum. Heute haben wir dann Sightseeing gemacht. Gestartet sind wir am Plaza Catalunya. Zuerst sind wir auf den "Mercat de la Boqueria" gegangen. Ein Markt auf dem es Fisch, Fleisch, Gemüse und Obst gibt. Hier hat es uns besonders gut gefallen. Dann ging es entlang der "Rambla" Richtung Hafen. "La Rambla" ist eine sehr volle Straße mit vielen Geschäften. Außerdem findet man hier Künstler und die lebenden Statuen. Dann ging es entlang am Hafen, vorbei an der Kolumbusstatue, zum Strand vom Stadtviertel "Barceloneta". Hier ist der Strand voll mit Menschen in allen Altersgruppen. Anschließend geht es durch das Viertel "Barri Gòtic". Ein schönes Viertel. Wir besichtigen die "Basilika Santa Maria dal Mar". Der Eintritt ist leider erst ab 17Uhr wieder frei, deswegen haben wir sie nur von außen angeschaut. Nach einem kurzen Päuschen im "Parc de la Ciutadella" beenden wir die Tour mit dem "Arc del Triomf".
    Wir sind beide sehr begeistert von der Stadt.

    Barcelona, Spain

    August 23, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 82 °F

    This was our second time in Barcelona. We first walked the La Rambla promenade with its live statues. This was the site of the terrorist attack just days earlier. Our private guide told us that it was quieter than usual with relatively empty cafes. We stopped to pay our respects at several memorials. They were very moving and emotional. The people of Barcelona say that they are "fearless" and terror will not win.
    Our tour focused on Antoni Gaudi. We had seen La Sagrada Familia from the outside but going inside was amazing. Then we visited two other architectural marvels of his: The Park Guell community and the Le Pedrera apartments.
    We learned so much about Gaudi and now understand his work. He was truly a genius far ahead of his time.
