Barcelona

Recently I took a short break to Barcelona. Incredibly I have never been in Spain before on holiday so I really didn’t know what to expect apart from the obvious Gaudi influence. What a revelation. An incredible city. Great people, great food (if a little different at times), ¬†fantastic sights and a very easy city to walk around. The only down side was there was no sun for most of our trip. In fact on the bus on the way to the city from the airport the very large puddles made us exchange worried glances. It turned out not cold but just slightly overcast most days. Now being a tourist (even though I like to think I am a traveller) I went out on the first morning wearing shorts – yes you guessed it I was the only person in Barcelona wearing shorts! Boy did I get some looks and not only from my wife and none of them were admiring.

The general routine was relaxing – up early get out walk all day, back to the hotel, change, walk and find good food, hotel and do it all again the next day. Below is a small selection of photographs from the loads I took. I suppose they sum up my experience of the city. If you’ve been there you may have a different impression. If so I’d love to hear. Anyway all comments would be appreciated. Now on with the photographs in no particular order.
