Beautiful Barcelona

Hamming it up in Barcelona
There’s those gingerbread houses

Last Summer, Lily, Jason and I spent a month in Europe, starting in Rome, travelling through Umbria and Provence, before ending up in Barcelona. The only reason we chose this northern Spanish city was the convenience of not having to backtrack to Rome to fly out. We had no hopes or expectations about Barcelona but it ended up wowing us – the friendly people, the easy of getting around, the lively flameco dancers, intriguing architecture (Lily was particularly intrigued by Parc Guell’s “gingerbread houses”) and of course the fact that there was a Desigual clothing store in every district.

Here’s a travel story for The West Australian travel section on our brief Barcelona experience which was published on the weekend:
