Barcelona Barcelona

Baaaaarcelona. It was good to be back for a little bit of time in February to visit a school and reacquaint myself with the city. It was a completely different experience than when I was there my freshman year of high school. Being with a group of teenagers vs. on your own is a totally different story. This time, I had a lot more time to spend on the things I wanted to do and see, as opposed to being on a very strict schedule as one is on a school trip. Here are some of the pictures I took while wandering around.

Although the trip was mostly business, I did take some time to see a few of the city’s attractions.

The weather was gorgeous the whole time I was there.

I wandered into this store after I saw COLORS in the windows. I’m drawn to anything colorful and saturated so it was a home design heaven.

I would like both of these rugs under my toes now, please.

…and I would like this stool to be under my booty ASAP as well.

Modern and clean, with a fun twist.

The architecture in Barcelona is crazy beautiful. There’s so much charm in this place.

The obvious place to visit in Barcelona is Sagrada Familia. I returned to see the church to see the inside this time, because during my last visit I missed out.

It was a busy day at the church.

The inside of the church has this magical lighting. The stained glass windows cast a rainbow glow over the whole place.

I spent a lot of time just wandering and understanding the city.

I LOVED THIS. Still don’t know what it was. BUT I LIKED IT.

My kind of bench, made of old boards and some gnarly stickers.

I walked to Park Guell one evening just to see it. This is undeniably one of my favorite places in the world.

This woman was playing at Park Güell. It made me happy.

Half of what I love about Barcelona is the streets.
