Barcelona, Spain January

What a beautiful city! We really enjoyed our time here. We left on Thursday night and came back the following Sunday. The architecture was very different from Germany and the food was so amazing! We ate at a place called Brunch & Cake the first morning and it was one of the best meals ever! Everything was fresh and most dishes came with lots of fresh fruit. I could have eaten there everyday!

Every piece just bounced off and only made a sound but no marks that obstructed my view. It looked like we were going through a time warp. Continue reading
