Beautiful Barcelona

It was late September last year when we ventured over to Barcelona for a long weekend getaway, and even though it was my first time in the city, it has easily become one of my favourite places to visit.

Everything about Barcelona is colourful. From Gaudi’s famous structures (such as La Sagrada Familia and Park Guell) to vibrant products being traded at the La Boqueria market, the city is alight with visual wonder everywhere you turn.

I love a good amble when I go on a city break, and Barcelona is a place where you can see a lot solely on foot. Navigating the narrow alleyways through the medieval Gothic Quarter, within 15 minutes one way you’re at the bustling port and sleek marina, or head northwards instead to the Exiample area where modern architecture & commercial buildings meet you.

As a photographer, I kept kicking myself as to how this was the first time I’d visited this city! Too much to see, by far, in the 3 days I had, and by the end of the trip I had a stiff neck from constantly lifting & turning it to the architectural & cultural delights all around me!
