Travel Photo Journal: BARCELONA, ESPANYA

I have been planning to make a full blog about my past trips, but most of the time I ended up putting them on the shelves. Now I have a lot of backlog travel blogs that I am pretty much excited to share with everyone.

I thought that aside from a detailed itineraries and tips of every trip I did, I'll post a photo journal so I can share with everyone the beauty of each place (immediately). Agree?

For my first photo journal, I thought of sharing my summer trip in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia in Spain and home of FC Barcelona (hooothooot).

I was really looking forward for this trip as I had an impression that Barcelona is an artist town, which means that I will fit here like a bespoke glove. In our Architectural history class, the works of Antonio Gaudi always intrigues us. I cannot say that we share the same sense of aesthetics, but I do admire his brilliant mind. This is one of the reasons why visiting the colorful Barcelona ended up in my travel bucket list.

So without further ado, here's the first part of my Barcelona Photo Journal.
