The first day we were there, we met my sister and her friends for a typical Spanish lunch of paella and sangria by the water. Later that evening, Ian and I went to a Barca soccer game where they won 2-1.
The next couple of days we spent visiting as many of architect and genius, Antioni Gaudi's masterpieces including the Sagrada Familia, an unbelievable church with such intricate details; Casa Mila with it's cool rooftop chimneys; Casa Batlo, which was Ian's favorite and reminded me of something that came out of a Tim Burton film; and last but not least, the whimsical Park Guell with its gorgeous views of the entire city.
The rest of the time was spent walking around and enjoying the city. It was a very short trip, only 3 days and then we were off to Roma! (Pictures will soon follow, hopefully)
