spain part five - arriving to barcelona

We spent our last two and a half days in Barcelona. The city is amazing, now I know why everyone love it so much! With some dark sides, though - crowds of people and long queues at all popular places. And thiefs. I've heard so many stories from my friends about stolen money and passports...we were quite lucky to avoid all that.

We spent our first evening jusr wandering in our "neighborhood". We lived in a hostel just in front of Barcelona University. And we've found out that Passeig de Gracia, which was five minutes away fron our home has all the shops - literally. Everything from H&M to Armani. How cool is that choice of place? :)

Casa Batllo.

The only aim (at least, mine) was to see Sagrada Famiglia. I've always been fascinated by the builfing itself and by the mysterious story behind it. And all what I expected was fulfilled ten times - Sagrada Famiglia is breathtaking, Gaudi is a genius of architecture! Unfortunately we didn't go inside, better luck next time. Now I have to visit it at least once more.

Me in front of Sagrada Famiglia. On my birthday I got a special present about it...which I'll show later :)

Aaaand some selfies in front :) I miss that warm Barcelona evening so much!
