I’ve been to the Balearic and Canary Islands before, but – until now – never on the mainland of Spain. One day I would love to travel alongside the coast, but as a spanish appetizer we chose a city trip to Barcelona. What a beauty. It is an overwhelming metroprolis full of life. We were impressed by outstanding architecture and friendly people. After a challenging day with finding the right metro line and walking around wide-eyed in narrow alleys of the gothic district, it is a blessing to see and feel and touch the ocean on a sunny evening.
