Barcelona

Place's to Visit

I've been very fortunate in my life to have travelled to many countries and explore the different cities in these places. One of my favourite quotes in the world is by author F. Scott. Fitzgerald, "I'm not sure what I'll do, but - well I want to go places and see people. I want my mind to grow. I want to live where things happen on a big scale." Although we were born in different centuries, we definitely share the same desire. Hopefully this post will be useful to all you travellers out there and even those of you who want to be a little adventurous.

Week 1: Barcelona

When I was 15, I went on an Art and Design Tour to Barcelona, Paris & New York.  I shamefully underestimated the beauty and ambience that Spain had to offer, however that meant that I was pleasantly surprised.  Here are some of the things I did when I was there:








The Markets: I could literally live in the markets, it was like scene out of a movie, too good to be true. Filled with vibrant colours and beautiful scents and a limitless selection of food, if you're ever in Barcelona make sure stop by the markets. And while you're their pick up a smoothy, they have combination of different flavours.





 The City: Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever seen. There are so many hidden treasures around, you just have to be willing to explore. I suggest going to parks, museums (Some that I visited were the MirĂ³ Museum & The Picasso Museum) and the Restaurants ( You can't go to Spain and not have tapas).

Sagrado Familia: A large Roman Catholic Church in Barcelona, which unbelievably, is still incomplete. The architecture is beautiful and the view from the top is spectacular. I encourage you to be bit daring and climb the stairs, all the way to the top. 




All photos have been taken by myself. If you have any thing to add or suggestions of places in Barcelona that should be seen, feel free to comment below.
