Viva Barcelona! – part one

I feel so lucky and blessed for spending my Easter holidays in one of my dream cities – Barcelona. This is my third time in this gorgeous, colorful city, but for the first time with my husband dearest 🙂 ! Barcelona, in so many ways, reminds me on my hometown Split. Mediterranean sea and mentality, but on a much bigger scale. And of course – colors!!  As you could notice, I loooove colors and Barcelona is a city which definitely isn’t afraid of them – and the fact that Barcelona is a home town of my favorite fashion brand, Desigual, also helps with my undying love for this city !

I will share with you some of the pictures taken during our visit. We are still in the town and will soon be of to enjoy some cava !

Kisses!

I was so touched when I entered the Sagrada…she is so out of this world – there is no such camera or picture which can truly show her beauty.

  1. I went to Barcelona when I was about 16/17 with my mum and while I don’t remember that much apart from La Rambla, I remember the atmosphere, friendly and warm

    • Well If you would have an opportunity I recommend another visit – I was there for the first time when I was 17, but while you’re getting little older it is much different (and better) experience!
      Thank you for commenting!
