I just got home on Sunday from an 8-day trip to Barcelona. I had a TERRIFIC time! Four of us, all from different places met for a break there. It was great to catch up with friends and get to know Barcelona, and of course Gaudi!
Well, some ppl think 8 days is too long a time to spend in just one city, buy hey, I loved it. I enjoyed every minute of it - despite having to walk non-stop daily maybe 10 hours or more per day. It is good for me, cos I never get to exercise my legs for that length of time otherwise.
What do I love most? I think Gaudi is a genius! I love his buildings - and I think his concept of architecture was simply brilliant - I sure would LOVE to have lived in a house built by him. I like all the sights I managed to see - Picasso museum was nice, Palau de la musica Catalana was fabulous, Tibidabo was such a pleasant surprise, and Monserrat was nice even tho the weather was not too great that day.
I came home tired but just simply thankful to be able to have a holiday in a beautiful city. I'll be posting pics from the trip at some point....
