Gaudí Gaudí Gaudí

Today’s adventure included a walk from the hotel to the beach in Barconleta via the Ramblas de Poblenou.

After that, we went to Gaudí’s Park Güell. The idea was to create a park that blended art and nature. It’s definitely a success in that regard. Words cannot describe how great this place is.

Today, we took a tour from Plaça Catalunya to Montserrat. It was about an hour to get there, and the scenery made it so worthwhile.

I can’t think of anything funny to say here so you’ll have to use your imagination for this one. There was a great farmers market outside the basilica for tourists with lots of great cheeses! The view from the top is absolutely amazing. Do yourself a favor and put it on your bucket list for Barcelona.

We had lunch at Oller del Mas then toured their vineyards and had wine tastings. Not bad for a Monday.

Also, here’s a picture of the amazing paella I had for dinner tonight:

I failed to post photos of last night’s dinner. My bad. I’m not that sort of monster.

Wow

Photos and video of Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia. This is, hands down, the weirdest and most beautiful thing ever. I was completely blown away by it.

I spent the day roaming about Barcelona with two of my favorite humans today. Adventures included, but were not limited to: a traditional Spanish breakfast, a walk through the gothic quarter to Gaudí’s first cathedral, a trip to the Miró Foundation, a walk down Las Ramblas and through La Boqueria, and numerous goblets of white sangria while watching the boats on the bay. Not so bad.
