Barcelona


I’ve spent 4 weeks out of 5 this year doing DIY to renovate our new home.  Annie and I decided a break was needed, so we headed to Barcelona for a short break.  I’d recommend it as a destination to anyone. We had a great time….  a very small selection of >600 photos that I shot….

The architecture is just fantastic. We saw lots of this…

We took a guided cycle tour of the city, which turned out probably to be the highlight… On that we saw plenty of Gaudi’s work…  Sagrada Família is stunning.
