So I realized that I haven’t posted one of these trip recaps in a while. For my newer readers, this past January, Kyle and I backpacked around Europe (for the whole month). You can check out London and Paris in my travel section 🙂
After Paris, Kyle and I took the train to Barcelona, Spain.
When we arrived, we were so happy to feel warmth. It was probably at least 10 degrees (F) warmer in Barcelona than it had been in London and Paris. Little did we know that we hadn’t experienced cold yet (Germany in the winter)…
We planned to do a free walking tour the next day. Highly recommend these if you’re on a budget (and even if you are not). You walk around with a tour guide and they take you throughout the city, giving you some history and current facts/trends. You only pay for tip.
After our tour, we went looking for good paella (vegetarian for me).
The next day was our 4 year anniversary. Here’s how you know you have a great guy: You’re backpacking through Europe and staying in a hostel, but you still wake up to breakfast in bed. It was a granny smith apple and a cup of tea, but I’ll never forget it 🙂
That day we had a big day planned! First stop was La Sagrada Família. Amazing. Inside and out. These pictures don’t do it justice.
After La Sagrada Família, we made our way to Parc Güell; a park (designed by Gaudí) situated on top of a hill overlooking Barcelona.
By that time, it was late afternoon and we wanted to get to the Olympic stadium for sunset. We accidentally went towards the University of Barcelona first, so we kind of had to run when we got off the train when we got off at the correct stop.
Amazing views and it was nice to have the place to ourselves. We think that tall pointy thing, that’s the architectural term, was where they held the torch?
A great anniversary and a great way to end Barcelona!
What’s the best anniversary you’ve ever had with your significant other?
Ever been to Barcelona?
