If you thought they spoke Spanish in Barcelona, you'd be wrong!
Bon dia my friends! Time to transition into Catalan (which is like if French and Spanish had a baby)
Now, some of our destinations are places Woody was able to visit about two years ago. Positano was the first in addition to Barcelona (and one more city coming up)! Needless to say, I had heard a lot of great things about Spain that I was so excited to see for myself. I'm not sure what I expected it to look like though I found myself speechless. The old buildings, the French influence, the architecture (Yes, Gaudi, but beyond that), the palm trees, the beaches, the rolling hills, and the Gothic Quarter. Seriously, the Gothic Quarter guys.
Naturally it rained most of the leg, BUT we happened to score tickets to the FCB vs Espanyol game. So sometimes the sun comes out in other ways. I was able to attend my first real football match and we got coordinating scarves to boot. Barca Barca Barca!
The game hurt our budget a little bit, so we didn't go crazy on decadent meals or nights out. But I'd take tapas and beers on the beach with my babe any day of the week.
Next Up: Ronda, Spain

This flag, called the Estelada, represents support for Catalan independence. In short, Catalan (which Barcelona resides) wants to be separate from the rest of Spain. Kinda like Quebec and Canada.. or those people in Texas who tried to secede...
Drooling over the Gothic Quarter
Plaça Reial. Also, can we talk about how much I love Palm Trees? This city is like, what I would love California to be.
Futbol is serious business
