I am grateful to be back home from my European adventure! When we were in Barcelona, we visited La Sagrada Familia, Museo Picasso, and Las Ramblas. You’ve probably heard about the recent attack in Barcelona, and luckily we weren’t there when it happened. My heart goes out to the victims and their families who lost their loved ones. It is unfortunate that there is a lot of violence happening, so I think it’s important to spread kindness. 🙂
Shout out to my friend and my main blog photographer, Christina, for gifting me this adorable passport holder. It was perfect for my trip! You might not be in need for a passport holder, but here’s an article to consider why you might want one.
Barcelona can be a very peaceful city, but also very busy. During the day people are out and about, walking the narrow cobblestone streets. The city wakes up around 7 A.M. and goes to bed after midnight. We got dinner around 11 P.M. one of the nights we were there, but it felt like 7 P.M. A lot of areas have open patios where you eat outside of the restaurant. It gave me a vibe of being one with the city, and I liked that.
La Sagrada Familia– The Basilica was honestly breathtaking. This picture only shows part of the outside. I remember when we got out of our taxi and saw it from across the street, I was so amazed. Seeing the architecture and detail of the church up close was unforgettable. It’s supposed to be completed in 2020, which gives me an excuse to go back! The inside is beautiful as well, but the pictures I took don’t do it justice. You can check out more details about the architecture of the church on the website.
Museu Picasso– I really enjoyed seeing the different styles of Picasso and how his artwork changed in time and through different influences in his life. Unfortunately we couldn’t take pictures inside, but everything was very memorable. It’s definitely worth seeing if you get a chance to go.
We also enjoyed some gelato while we walked the streets of Spain. Most of my overall outfit details are in my last post. Be prepared- I wore this fedora basically everyday of the trip, but I have to say, it was a lifesaver while walking in the heat.
We spent two days in Barcelona, and then we got on our cruise ship to explore more of Europe- including France, Italy, and Montenegro.
Stay tuned for more of my travels!
