Barcelona was everything I thought it would be and then some. The gothic architecture and winding alleys were right up my…alley. We rented the best apartment in the Born district of Barcelona. It was the perfect distance between the beach [which was topless, btw], las ramblas, and the markets. We rented bikes and rode around the city for hours. We also walked to Sagrada Famlilia and Park Guell [i heart gaudi] and then made our way back to the heart of the city wandering in and out of various stores and cafes. The perfect city to start our two week adventure.
