Barcelona, day 1

Image

The epic view from the balcony at the apartment where we rented a room for 2 nights. What a way to start the day, having breakfast with Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia so so close! ImageWe headed to an outdoor market, they sell everything from antiques, to housewares, books and big stuff like sinks, beds etc. Super crowded and lot’s of interesting things to see… Now we walk to the beach, passing very cool buildings and sculptures all the way.Image

We reach the beach after stopping in a fancy hotel/casino (above) to pick up a city map

Image

ImageIt’s a warm day, but not hot enough to jump in the lovely Mediterranean. We hop on a bus towards the main boulevard to have lunch… ImageIn the neighborhood there are lot’s of little streets and courtyards to discover after lunch.

Guess which statue had a larger crowd. The angel or the devil?Image

Next we take the metro up to the delightful Parc Guell, it’s a sprawling park set high above the city. The highest point has a a 360 degree view, looking out to the sea and up to the hills…

ImageThere are so many playful pavilions, landscapes and magical dreams come to life!

ImageIt’s windy on top of the world…Image

ImageYou have never seen so many mosaics! Image

As the sun sets we leave the gorgeous park and head back to our little room across from Sagrada Familia, then Tapas and beer of course! Have to rest up for day 2…
