The Beginning of the Trip – Espana

For the last two weeks I have been in Spain πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ – which was really rather fun. Β I set off the Tuesday before last to Barcelona, where I have never been before. Β I was on my own and to start with spent a couple of days getting to know this really rather large city.

The first day I wandered about the old city, which is fun – lots of small winding streets and I got rather lost. Β I came across all sorts of things – many little boutiques πŸ‘—πŸ‘ πŸ’(a scarf, some sandals and a necklace made by El Pez Dorado may have been purchased..), I stumbled upon the cathedral β›ͺ️ quite by accident, and found some really lovely parks 🌳 full of weird and wonderful architecture and sculpture πŸ—½, my favourite was Parc de l’Estacio Del Nord πŸš‚πŸŒ³.

In the afternoon I headed over to the main streets to look at Gaudi’s architecture 🏰. Β Gaudi’s architecture reminds me a lot of Dr Seuss 🎩🐱 – all higgledy piggledy – and I have to say I am not sure how much I like it. Β Strangely I think it would actually be better in bright bright colours πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’š- and I am not quite sure what to make of the Sagrada Familia 🏰.

Day one was very satisfactory – I got into the swing of travelling on my ownπŸ‘§πŸŽ’, attempted to remember some Spanish πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ΈπŸ˜³ and got stuck into my book πŸ“˜.
