Hola Barcelona!

Pictures taken from my weekend trip to Barcelona from the weekend of March 15th.
Easily my favorite trip thus far since starting on my project here in Europe. The city is endlessly rich with culture and boasts an amazing nightlife. I'd love to go back one day. Here are some photos from my weekend:
My hotel was on Las Ramblas which is an extremely popular strip in Barcelona:

Santa Maria del Mar: absolutely stunning

La Sagrada Famila: Very popular tourist destination. I can't wait to see it completed.

Park Güell: Also another popular tourist destination. Very cool park.

FC Barcelona Stadium (Camp Nou):

I'm sure you're wondering why the heck I took a picture of what seems to be some random car. Well...Inside this car was Ronaldinho as he came into the to grab he things from the stadium locker room to get ready for an away game. Shortly after that, Thierry Henry and a slue of other superstars came driving in with their sweet rides. If you don't know soccer, this may not seem like a big deal, but trust me when I tell you...These players are true celebrities in Europe and treated like gods by their fanbase. It was a very cool and unplanned experience. It was just by dumb luck that after a 7 hour walk I'd come into the stadium to see the players driving in.

Port Vell: Beautiful port on an equally beautiful day


Montjuïc Castle:
