I have the major holiday blues right now, the cause of this is spending the most amazing week in Barcelona. I have arrived home slightly bronzed, nursing a few mosquito bites and a heavy heart. The pictures above explain better in words what a beautiful city it is. We booked our stay in a shared apartment through airbnb. At first I was apprehensive about this but I couldn't recommend it enough, our host was lovely and it was super cheap for a full week! Highlights included a day trip to Sitges (a beautiful coastal town about an hour away by train), renting some bikes and cycling up the coast and seeing some live music in the El Born area. Also a trip could not be complete without several stops to Zara and some mojitos.
I can't wait to return here one day, its a magical place.
