The Beginning of the Trip – Espana

For the last two weeks I have been in Spain ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ – which was really rather fun. ย I set off the Tuesday before last to Barcelona, where I have never been before. ย 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. ย I came across all sorts of things – many little boutiques ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ’(a scarf, some sandals and a necklace made by El Pez Dorado may have been purchased..), I stumbled upon the cathedral โ›ช๏ธ quite by accident, and found some really lovely parks ๐ŸŒณ full of weird and wonderful architecture and sculpture ๐Ÿ—ฝ, my favourite was Parc de l’Estacio Del Nord ๐Ÿš‚๐ŸŒณ.

In the afternoon I headed over to the main streets to look at Gaudi’s architecture ๐Ÿฐ. ย Gaudi’s architecture reminds me a lot of Dr Seuss ๐ŸŽฉ๐Ÿฑ – all higgledy piggledy – and I have to say I am not sure how much I like it. ย Strangely I think it would actually be better in bright bright colours ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š- and I am not quite sure what to make of the Sagrada Familia ๐Ÿฐ.

Day one was very satisfactory – I got into the swing of travelling on my own๐Ÿ‘ง๐ŸŽ’, attempted to remember some Spanish ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ˜ณ and got stuck into my book ๐Ÿ“˜.
