Ahhhhhhh, Barcelona ....

We have a new city we adore!!!!

~ Barcelona, Spain ~

We had such an enjoyable time in our recent visit to Spain, Prior to our 7 day Celebrity Cruise!
We decided that because it was such a short cruise, We'd spend 4 days in Barcelona .. Guess what? 4 days wasn't enough!! I was actually surprised at how much we enjoyed this great city.

With our Metro T10 pass in hand & the free shuttles from our Renaissance Hotel the city was ours by the 2nd day we knew the lay of the land & already had our favorite coffee shoppe.

Pickpockets: Yes, we heard about them, we felt safe the entire time!
Question is: Do you look like a Tourist? We saw several Americans, carrying large purses, 1000 dollar camera hanging around their necks, Might as well have had a bulls-eye on their forehead saying PICK ME PICK ME!

A friend of mine was mugged, She was upset she lost her Rolex!!!
"Why are you wearing your Rolex here??" Seriously??

Here are just a few pictures with comments we hope you enjoy!

I agree totally with you, Barcelona is a one of my favorite cities. Went there to take deliveries of aircraft and fell in love with the place.
I just love to walk around La Rambla and the city, the diversity of the architecture and buildings. And not to forget the food.
