The view in one direction from our balcony, during a stay in Barcelona. Gràcia is a great area to stay if you prefer being among locals rather than throngs of tourists, and is only a short walk away from the city. There are plenty of little streets to wander down and get lost on, which often lead to an inviting square or food market.
An image from the start of Summer 2012 – a sculpture on the beach in Barcelona, taken while visiting my younger brother. Even in the early Summer, Barcelona is a load warmer than Dublin gets in mid-Summer, so the heat was thoroughly enjoyed. The architecture, both old and new, is brilliant too.
A city I will definitely need to visit on a few more occasions!
