Here are some of the pics I snapped of our trip. It's always at times like these I find myself wishing I was a trained, professional photographer, in hopes of perfectly capturing the new experiences. I find it so difficult to accurately represent the architecture, culture and atmosphere of the places we visit. These pictures do not do this trip justice. They are way too, 2-dimensional. It's always different when you are there and the culture surrounds you, with its smells, sites, people.
This church was designed by Antoni Gaudi and is still under construction according to his original plans. Its estimated date of completion is 2025.
Gaudi also designed these 2 apartment buildings in Barcelona. After visting them we learned that he gets his inspiration from things in nature, bones, skulls, trees, etc.
The loft apartment we stayed in.
By far the best meal we had in Barcelona. Delish!!!
This tiny plate of Iberian ham was 19 Euros (it's about 200 grams of meat). It tasted that expensive.
It was a super cloudy day, the day we visited the church. I know it looks like fog but we are actually high enough to be in the clouds.
There is a really old amusement park still up and running next to the church.
Coolest looking ride ever!!!
This Cathedral was in the Gothic Quarter.
This type of mosaic design is very common to see on buildings throughout the city. This was by far one of the prettiest.
My father-in-law rockin' my red scarf.
And last but not least, my IG pics from Barcelona. Food, shopping and a bump. Pretty much sums up the whole trip for me.
Very grateful...Happy Monday!!!
