The Beginning of the Trip - Espana

For the last two weeks I have been in Spain ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ - which was really rather fun. ย I set off the Tuesday before last to Barcelona, where I have never been before. ย I was on my own and to start with spent a couple of days getting to know this really rather large city.The first day I wandered about the old city, which is fun - lots of small winding streets and I got rather lost. ย I came across all sorts of things - many little boutiques ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ’(a scarf, some sandals and a necklace made by El Pez Dorado may have been purchased..), I stumbled upon the cathedral โ›ช๏ธ quite by accident, and found some really lovely parks ๐ŸŒณ full of weird and wonderful architecture and sculpture ๐Ÿ—ฝ, my favourite was Parc de l'Estacio Del Nord ๐Ÿš‚๐ŸŒณ.In the afternoon I headed over to the main streets to look at Gaudi's architecture ๐Ÿฐ. ย Gaudi's architecture reminds me a lot of Dr Seuss ๐ŸŽฉ๐Ÿฑ - all higgledy piggledy - and I have to say I am not sure how much I like it. ย Strangely I think it would actually be better in bright bright colours ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š- and I am not quite sure what to make of the Sagrada Familia ๐Ÿฐ.Day one was very satisfactory - I got into the swing of travelling on my own๐Ÿ‘ง๐ŸŽ’, attempted to remember some Spanish ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ˜ณ and got stuck into my book ๐Ÿ“˜.Alice xxxIMG_5368Photo 26-04-2016-2Photo 27-04-2016-2Photo 27-04-2016Photo 27-04-2016-4Photo 27-04-2016-9Photo 27-04-2016-7Photo 27-04-2016-8Photo 27-04-2016-10Photo 27-04-2016-11Photo 27-04-2016-13Photo 27-04-2016-14Photo 27-04-2016-15Photo 27-04-2016-20Photo 27-04-2016-16Photo 27-04-2016-17Photo 27-04-2016-19Photo 27-04-2016-23Photo 27-04-2016-24Photo 27-04-2016-25Photo 27-04-2016-26
