Better late than never, right?
Can you believe it has taken me 3 weeks to edit my Barcelona photos? And I’ll be going back there in another 2 weeks! Yes, really.
But in the meantime, let’s take a look at what I like to call ‘Barcelona Moments‘, i.e. random photos of this and that, or of whatever happened to catch my eye. Of course, if you follow my Photo Journal (= one of my 3 Instagram accounts), you’ve already seen a sample of these.
I’m not a very good tourist. I hate crowded places, and I steer clear of anything too ‘touristy’. I prefer to walk around more or less aimlessly, and I definitely do not plan my itinerary.
But Professor M and I have visited Barcelona once or twice a year for the past 15 years, so we have seen our share of museums and landmarks, as well as shops, restaurants and hotels. And of course we have our favourites (shops, restaurants, whatever). As far as museums go, if you’re ever in Barcelona, the Chocolate Museum is a must.
This time we stayed in the very trendy El Born district, which is full of excellent restaurants and interesting shops. And the fabulous Parc de la Ciutadella was just across the street from our hotel.
Talking about shops… I was fascinated by this little shop in Ciutat Vella (= old town):
No, I didn’t buy anything. I’m a minimalist at heart, and even if I find something ‘cute’, or ‘interesting’, I only buy it if I really need (or want) it. And at the moment I don’t really need (or want) a rubber duck…
Easter delicacies, on the other hand… Well, we sampled a few. All in the name of research. Or cultural immersion. Whatever.
Political messages were everywhere in Barcelona, of course:
I’m absolutely in awe of the various forms of street art in Barcelona, whether it’s the colourful shop shutters or something else.
I hope you enjoyed my ‘Barcelona Moments‘
