I might have already mentioned here that I went on a short break to Barcelona a few weeks ago. This was the first time I traveled on my own, and after a few hours of getting used to not being able to talk to someone (that’s a lie actually, I was on the phone all the time… 🙂 ), I really did have a good time.
In a country that produces the most fashionable brands in Europe (Zara, Mango, etc.), it is quite predictable to see some nice fabric shops, but I was absolutely stunned by the variety of fabrics on offer in 3 shops on the same street.
Barcelona is a surprisingly neat city, with broad streets and pretty buildings. I, of course, am more drawn towards the colorful and messy bits, so loved the works of Gaudi, and the favourite part of the city became the Barceloneta neighborhood and the Tibidabo. A hundred years old amusement park on top of a mountain overlooking the city? That’s perfection in my book!
