So, Part I included stunning Seville and edgy Grenada – undoubtedly my two favourite places in Spain.
What can you expect from Part II? Valencia and Barcelona, of course!
Valencia was not my favourite place, although still it’s Spain in summer, so not going to complain too loudly. The beach was awesome and the town typically pretty. The most I have to report here is amazing images of drunken Damian on the dance floor. Superbly sweaty.
My first night in Barcelona I arrived absolutely exhausted, determined not to go out, only to be greeted by some hilarious Canadians who dragged me out to a street festival in the Garcia barrio. Definite thanks to those boys because the festival was amazing. Locals decorate the streets to the nines, local bands and musicians play and drinking and eating is plentiful.
The Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona is also one of my absolute favourite contemporary art museums I’ve ever visited. Each exhibition was amazing and I spent the whole day wondering through each floor.
I should also add that in each major city I’ve visited so far – Athens, London, Seville, Grenada, Valencia, Barcelona – I’ve done a walking tour. Best way to get to know a new city as well as learn about the obvious and not so obvious part of its history.
A lot of these images were taken on said walking tours, omitting the clearly drunken ones. I usually try to be sober when walking around a new city. Usually.
Highlights in Barcelona: the (in)famous Razzmatazz, Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, Canadian chillers, partying until the sun came up (literally) and Gaudi.
