First time in Barcelona? Yes. First time in Spain? Yes. First time in Europe? Yes.
I was a virgin like that.
The first thing I visited was Mirador de l’Alcalde. The thing about viewpoints is, apart from presenting a summary of how a place is like, it shapes your perspective of it. Therefore, I think visiting viewpoints should be done at the start of the trip, as it lays the foundation of your travel experience.
Blimey! It rained quite heavily!
Can’t help but notice the beautiful artworks!
The rain stopped but the clouds hovered for a while.
Spotted Sagrada Familia!
A little shop selling snacks, drinks and postcards, among other things. Expensive!
The clouds made way for the sun, finally!
Undeterred by the less than perfect weather yesterday, we made another trip back up.
YAAAAAY! Beautiful, isn’t it?
This is Barcelona!
And that’s me with a little bit of Barcelona.
The harbour was beautiful too!
Lovely restaurant overlooking the scenic view.
