Barcelona: THE WHOLE OF SPAIN IN ONE VILLAGE (8)

Was so excited to go to the Montjuic mountain! Had a great day ahead of me, and have decided to begin my wanders from the beach!

Barcelona: STEPPING ON JOAN MIRO (7)

Back from Figueres, time to look for that Picasso Museum in Barcelona, but also to chase the landmarks of the city which were actually the legacy of the great artist Joan Miro.

Barcelona: OFF TO FIGUERES TO DREAM WITH DALI (6)

Another beautiful morning. Late November, but sunny, around 17 degrees, just perfect for an excursion out of the city. And what an excursion that is going to be!

Barcelona: THERE’S PICASSO, JUST AROUND THE CORNER! (5)

One of the districts not to be missed in the city is certainly Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. It stretches along La Rambla Street and it radiates its own charm. There is nothing you can compare to a walk along those too narrow streets, among building walls so high and thick with just a hint of daily … Continue reading Barcelona: THERE’S PICASSO, JUST AROUND THE CORNER! (5)

Barcelona: CASA BATLLO AND SAGRADA FAMILIA (4)

My favorite spot in Barcelona is probably Antoni Gaudi's Casa Batllo building. Just couldn’t wait to get there, to look at it up close.

It was kind of a venture to get into … Continue reading Barcelona: CASA BATLLO AND SAGRADA FAMILIA (4)

Barcelona: CHIQUITA IN LA RAMBLA (3)

Promised myself not to rush that afternoon, but to take nice stroll down Barcelona's La Rambla Street.

Barcelona: FACING THE DRAGON IN PARK GUELL (2)

My first day in Barcelona! Took a long breath and glanced through the window, rushed down for breakfast, then back up to my room to take the camera and the book I bought the night before.

Barcelona: DRAGGING SMALL SUITCASE UPWARDS (1)

When traveling to European countries, I often go as I would if strolling the streets of my own home town, since nothing is that far, the flights are not long, don’t have to carry a lot of luggage etc. (That is the advantage of living in Serbia – it will take you somewhat more then … Continue reading Barcelona: DRAGGING SMALL SUITCASE UPWARDS (1)
