I’m in Barcelona, a destination that I had only considered for a summer holiday, but thanks to the advice of a friend that “Barcelona is nice anytime of year,” I switched my sights from spending a week in Central America to Spain.

During the few weeks before “holiday trips”, ask where I am going, and it will be a different answer every time.  Spain didn’t even register as a possibility until two days before I was to depart.  My sights were set on Roatan, Colombia, Guatemala, or USVI.  Spain…well, I didn’t really expect to be back in Europe so soon.

But here I am, and in short, Barcelona is wonderful.  Between staying at W Barcelona, to exploring the streets of shops and restaurants, discovering the architectural genius of Gaudi, or riding Teleferico de Montjuic, my time has been filled.

Right now, I am lounging at Itaca Hostel, relaxing reggae music softly playing, while the smells and sizzle of an  evening meal cooking in the kitchen remind me of my own hunger.  I am going out for Vegetarian Paella tonight.  Maybe some Sangria or Cava.  Ah, I love Spain.

Next week, I’ll write about Barcelona in full detail.  I’ll be sure to include entertaining stories, maybe about attractive Aussie Rugby players. 

Something to look forward to…

Buenas Noches!
