Barcelona was extra special for me. It was an absolutely gorgeous city and one that I could very happily live in. But the special part was meeting a special friend. Through our mutual love of photography, we met online on a photo sharing community. Now i know it sounds slightly weird meeting online! However, we did and through our photos we got to know each other over about 3-4 years. Getting the opportunity to meet Cris and her lovely man Albert was definitely a highlight of the trip!
Cris is a VERY talented photographer and artist. You can see her beautiful work here ~
So here are my photos of this beautiful city and my wonderful friend!
(Photos are all by me unless I’m in it… then they are by Mark … Unless we are both in it .. In which case it was a random stranger passing by)
Our first view of Barcelona - the beautiful Sagrada Familia.
We made it to the stunning sea!
Putting on their best smiles ^^
Cris & Albert's house is such a gem! It is so unique and homely. And their backyard is perfect . . . and it even has an outdoor shower!
The extremely handsome 'Cheers'
And then we got to watch Barcelona play. And we even got to see Messi!
Next was park Guell. Gaudi's quirky and awesome park with a wonderful view over the city.
Biking along the waterfront in Barcelona is a must!
Spending time with our special friends <3
Well there it is. Our European Summer of 2013 has been completed!!
Can't wait for the next adventure.
Hope you have enjoyed these photos from our trip.
Thanks for stopping by!
