Barcelona’s Barri Gotic

Being from the States, I am always amazed by the shear age and history of many of the places I am lucky enough to travel to. Some of the oldest, most powerful sites that I get to see are churches and cathedrals that cities grow up around. I try to imagine the massive undertaking that building one of these would entail in today’s world. Truly mind blowing!

More of Gaudi’s architecture lit up at night. His style amazes me. It feels almost evil and gothic, with much of his work being inspired by serpents, snakes, and skulls.

And of course, no post is complete without the breakfast shot! French fries with fried eggs, I would never get sick of that!
