These past few posts I have discussed my experiences while I was studying abroad in Spain. This was the first time I traveled abroad on my own (without family or friends.) I was very nervous as this was my first time, and I thought I would share what I learned through this experience.
The Doors of Barcelona
I don't know what it is but I have this thing with doors. You may have seen the hashtag on instagram which I am an avid follower of. It's weird I know. But I love cool doors.
While studying in Spain I did have some time to do sightseeing. I had heard about the mountain town of Montserrat and how beautiful it was and decided to take a tour of the town that included a winery.
Oh My Gaudi
Antoni Gaudi was a famous architect in Barcelona during the late 19th century into the early 20th century and is basically a national hero in Spain. He designed many unique buildings in the spanish modernist style that are all pretty touristy but must see sights.
El Barri Gotic
The Barri Gotic or the Gothic Quarter is the oldest part of Barcelona and one of my favorite spots. There are old churches, ancient looking buildings that have been there for hundreds of years, cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways, that are very easy to get lost in
My Favorite Places to Shop in Barcelona
In any country that I visit I always love to shop, discover new styles and check out stores that are not yet in the U.S. like Bershka or stores like Mango and Desigual that are better in their home country. After a month in Barcelona I'd say I was definitely able to do some serious damage.
My Favorite Places to Eat in Barcelona
This past summer I had the opportunity to spend a month in Barcelona while studying spanish. While spending a moth there along with studying I got to see the sights, do some amazing shopping (post to follow) and take a survey of the local restaurants.
