Hello! Hello! Hello!
I finally have Barcelona on the blog! Barcelona was an awesome city. Our apartment was right in the El Born district so we didn't have to venture far at all to see awesome stuff. There were restaurants, shops, cafes, and bars all on the first floor so everything was very close by. Plus, the beach was about a 20 minute walk so we made sure to stop there a couple of times too.
I really liked Barcelona because the people were pretty laid back, I could speak the language a little better than all of the other ones, and it was the warmest country we visited at this time of year. We also had an amazing time watching a live Flamenco performance which was definitely one of my favorite moments from the whole trip. The performers were so passionate and seemed to really love what they do.
My favorite site that I saw here was the Basilica de la Sagrada Familia. It has so many detailed carvings on the outside and just very extravagant stone work. Then the inside was even more grand. Talk about vaulted ceilings, amazing pillars, and stained glass windows. With the sun shining through it looked like they captured a rainbow and stored it in the building. It was absolutely breathtaking!
