Bohemian Barcelona

The sun was shining on Gaudi’s city when we visited Barcelona this past spring. This was my first trip to the city and from the beginning I was amazed by the energy of the place; this was a city with a real zest for life! Barcelona is a place of art, music, color and tapas, and as I’m sure anyone who has been fortunate enough to visit will agree, it has an incredibly strong and unique identity. It’s a vibrant, bohemian place with street performers on every other corner, people dancing in the street, a buzzing café culture and architecture so flamboyant and unusual it will blow your mind.

Barcelona has so much to explore. From taking in the plethora of Catalonian art and landmarks to idly roaming backstreets, this was less of a rest and more of an excursion. And, of course, the perfect opportunity to take some photographs – a preoccupation that’s never far from my mind, especially in a city as varied and convivial as this!

No trip to Barcelona is complete without stopping by the awe-inspiring Sagrada Familia.

For a great place to sip a cocktail and watch the world go by, we suggest Placa Reial.
