Every time I feel a ray of sunshine burning on my skin or I get the feeling that summertime is just around the corner, it reminds me of the beautiful capital of Catalonia.
I’ve been in Barcelona for almost fifteen days in February 2012 with one of my best friends. It was the first time we also used couchsurfing as a way to explore even deeper the city lifestyle. You can find our adventure here.
I must say I loved everything about this cosmopolitan city: the urbanistic sights matches up with the street style of the Catalans, the language and dialect itself sounds beautifully mysterious, the food, including all the tapas and sangria were divine, the live music, the culture and of course, as part of being a tourist, the monuments.
It was one of those cities where I got the feeling “I could live here for a while”. I’ve always wanted to enrich my Spanish and learning Catalan might be a good way to do it. The lifestyle of Barcelona is vivid and colorful. Probably I will try it someday.
A delightful trip to repeat. For sure.
