So... I went to Barcelona! Here I am in Park Guell, an amazing outdoor space designed and landscaped by Antoni Gaudi. The weather was beautiful - 72F in November! We strolled through the park, climbing its stone steps and marveling the amazing view of the city. Everything was so beautiful! I loved seeing some Gaudi's work; we stayed in a hostel on Passeig de Gracia, which includes Casa Battlo and La Pedrera. I didn't take the opportunity to go inside either of these, but the following day, we did visit La Sagrada Familia.

As usual, I feel I didn't have adequate time to explore the city. However, I'd love to return sometime in the future - perhaps when the cathedral is completed (estimated anywhere from 2025 to 2040).
I had wanted to visit Spain for ages, since I've been learning the language since I was eleven. My speaking didn't really extend past a seventh grade level, but I thoroughly enjoyed being able to put it to use.
Unfortunately, I didn't really get to experience any typical Spanish food, but I did buy some rice with which I intend to attempt a vegan paella dish. It's too bad I didn't find any saffron there...
I still have to post photos from Cardiff, Copenhagen and now Barcelona. I think I shall round up a few photos to show my favorite parts of each city!
