Last weekend was a long weekend for us so we headed off to Barcelona for a city trip. Little did we know the whole world had the same idea !!! We knew we wouldn’t be there alone but we never expected it would be so crowded. I had plans to see some things I really wanted to see, alas we had to change that but despite everything I enjoyed every minute of it. Barcelona is a wonderful city but you need to have good feet and a lot of patience as the cues to go see something interesting are loooooong !!!!
Enough said, I’ll show you some pictures of Barcelona in this blog post, the next blog post will be about the art exhibitions we went to and the third blog post will be about flowers and plants, cacti and succulents.
Many of the following pictures were taken from a riding bus so they are not always of good quality.
