Barcelona (such a beautiful horizon)

This was our first lunch in BCN, we ate beautiful tapas and drank remarkably alcoholic sangria.

A couple of weekends ago, Ross took me on a much needed break to Barcelona.  I’d never been before, but it’s now one of my very favourite places.  And yes, I did have the Freddie Mercury song in my head the entire time.

We spent a gorgeous weekend wandering up and down La Rambla (and getting suitably ripped off! €18 ham as a starter, I kid you not), lounging about on the beach, and drinking unbelievably refreshing Sangria and Damm beer.  On our last day we took an open bus tour around part of the city and ooooohed and aaaaahhhhhed at all the quirky Gaudi buildings.  We didn’t take Ruby, and in this instance I am glad we didn’t – it was good to be able to stay out late at night, and not hide under shady umbrellas in the midday sun and drink and drink and drink.  But we could have done.  We saw family after family after family with children of all ages, and it would have worked well.  If only Ruby had a passport!

So, on to the photos!  I really got my tourist hat on, and I am pretty pleased with my shots.

The rest of my photos can be seen over on my Flickr page, Barcelona is beautiful, and my photos don’t do it justice, but I tried :)
