The City of Gaudí

The final day. The last day in Barcelona. Well, you would assume after all I saw in the first few days in Barcelona that I would be done sightseeing. But, nothing will stop an energetic explorer from seeking beauties in the world. The third day, I dived into the world of Gaudi. Seven of his works are part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. I searched and captured his remarkable works. First thing first, I needed energy in order to hunt. I feasted in Milk Bar & Bistro, a bar with a rich old school 50s’ feels.

I will be posting multiple blogs giving you the ins and outs. Let’s start with Week 1…

Trip to Iceland

Warning: This trip was not planned beforehand. The tickets were purchased two weeks before departure and car rental was purchased the day of departure. Risky, I know. 

Why Iceland?

Honestly, the only response I have is: My companion wanted to be in the dark. Darkness is exactly what I got. During the winter, there are only about 4 hours of sunlight.
