Recently I had the pleasure of visiting one of the most exhilarating, thrilling and beautiful cities of Europe - Barcelona.
Personally when traveling to "foreign" places I like to take in the city by doing the most anti touristy things possible.... I truthfully don't believe you get the whole experience and grasp of a city by visiting all the "must sees" that are marked in your travel guide along with your fellow tourist companions (half of which you probably saw on the plane ride over here) but rather see where the city takes you.... be spontaneous, live the day and allow yourself to wander.... at least that was the motto of this fine trip. I probably walked about 40 km in 3 days... talk about workout, ate the seafood & amazing Tapas, sunbathed at the beach, strolled along the harbor and just took in the hot spanish sun ! + had the best yoghurt ice cream ... ever .
you haven't disappointed me one bit, everything I heard, you showed.
P.S. Must learn spanish !
