I spent last weekend in Barcelona, I would love to say seeing all the sights and enjoying being a tourist, but actually I mostly just hung around the old town and enjoyed having some time off work.

What can I say about Barcelona, aside from IT WAS AWESOME! If you're thinking of going, GO. It's rather picturesque, the weather is amazing, there are millions of food options (being vegan, this is a complete novelty for me) and people are super-friendly. It has a quite a party atmosphere, can't imagine what the place is like during carnival, insane I am sure. Oh, and cheap, which is something I'm not used to with travelling, most big cities are stupidly expensive. Also, I hear there are beaches. I need to investigate those beaches. Ah well, next time! In the mean time, here are some pics from my new favourite European city:

Barcelona Cathedral (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia, NOT Sagrada Familiar, the famous overgrown Gaudi creation!) is very, very pretty, and set right in the old town, plenty of bustling life around it.

A band busking in front of the cathedral. With a piano ON WHEELS!!! They were actually quite good too.

One of the many small streets and alleyways I spent my time walking around. This was a nice sunny Monday morning bustle going on, there are actually loads of people living in the old town.
