Barcelona in Pictures - Part 1

My trip to Barcelona was just wonderful - beautiful weather, sunshine, and a new city to explore. Even though we had 4-ish days there, I actually wish we could have stayed longer. It feels like there were so many more sights we could have visited, but oh well ... those that we saw, we loved! 

The pictures from above are from last Tuesday and Wednesday. We arrived on Tuesday, which was the only day where it was cloudy and not too warm. While we were waiting for our room to be ready, mum and I strolled around at the beach (it was only 200 metres away from our hotel!) and had some food. Around the Port Olympic, there are a lot of places to eat or enjoy a cocktail, so we actually went back there on Wednesday night to have a few drinks. 

During the day on Wednesday, we did the typical tourist thing: we walked through Barri G√≥tic (the Gothic quarter, centre of the old city of Barcelona, which I can only recommend - what a beautiful place!), visited the Sagrada Familia and La Rambla (a very popular street in central Barcelona), including the market called La Bouqeria. The market is crammed with people, very colourful and you can buy just about any food you can think of - it's definitely a place you shouldn't miss.  

I was also able to locate a Sephora, but I didn't go as wild in there as I originally planned. I only bought three things, two of the items being makeup. I'm sure about about it soon, so you'll see what I got! 

Since I didn't want this post to become to crowded, I seperated the flood of pictures and made two seperate ones - part 2 should be up in a couple of days!
