For the last two weeks I have been in Spain 🇪🇸 – which was really rather fun. I set off the Tuesday before last to Barcelona, where I have never been before. 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. I came across all sorts of things – many little boutiques 👗👠💍(a scarf, some sandals and a necklace made by El Pez Dorado may have been purchased..), I stumbled upon the cathedral ⛪️ quite by accident, and found some really lovely parks 🌳 full of weird and wonderful architecture and sculpture 🗽, my favourite was Parc de l’Estacio Del Nord 🚂🌳.
In the afternoon I headed over to the main streets to look at Gaudi’s architecture 🏰. 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. Strangely I think it would actually be better in bright bright colours 💛💙💜💚- 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 own👧🎒, attempted to remember some Spanish 🇪🇸😳 and got stuck into my book 📘.
