Barcelona was the perfect way to end our 2 week journey. It has everything a curious traveler wants to see. Beautiful old (and new) architecture, outrageously delicious food, friendly people, a distinct culture with specific traditions, a fabulous infrastructure of metros/buses/ground transportation, beautiful weather, gorgeous parks, a great selection of hotels and reasonable prices….I could go on and on. If Paris or Rome seem daunting to a novice or first time traveler, I would highly recommend Barcelona instead. It has everything you want to see and is just the right size as to not overwhelm. I’m not a paid spokesperson for the Barcelona Tourist Office….seriously….but Barcelona has become one of my top 3 favorite cities (after Paris and Rome).
For our last day in Barcelona, I decided not to do a detailed report of the day’s activities. Rather, I wanted to share some images of the city that I took during our visit, which capture some of the flavor of this beautiful city.
When we had to say farewell to Barcelona, we decided to a taxi to the airport rather than the great Aerobus…and I have to say that the taxi fare was very reasonable…just under 20 euros. The airport check-in was a breeze, our flight took off on time and we were on our way home from another fabulous European adventure.

I hope I get to share your vacation next year too.
I’ll be spending the month of March 2017 in Venice so be sure to check out my blog then.
Can’t wait to see your special take on Venice…I know how much you love it there.
