Barcelona

During my trip I was lucky enough to spend 4 days in Barcelona with my friend Sahar! The city had such a rich culture that we had so much fun discovering. We explored everything on foot: the trendy neighborhoods of Gràcia, the beachy Barceloneta, the medieval Gothic Quarter, some of Antonio Gaudi’s marvelous structures, a few parks, and so many tiny cafés! Here are some of my favorite pictures.

I hope I get to go back to this beautiful city one day.
