[ med cruise day 5 - barcelona ]

No. 5 ~ Barcelona, Spain

OUR CRUISE began and ended in Barcelona. We had been there before so this time it was just about wandering around, doing a bit of shopping and capturing some pics.



Barcelona is a beautiful city - filled with gorgeous architecture and narrow streets with all kinds of nooks and crannies.

lots of sidewalk cafés...


artists and artisans everywhere you look...



humans disguised as statues...




rental bikes ready to take you around...



plenty of scooters...



and interesting shops...








The buildings are incredible, whether you are into the creativity of Gaudi...





or just the intricate details all around you...











even the sidewalks and utility caps were fancy...



I was smitten by all the interesting signage...













Barcelona is definitely a city all about the details and such a lovely way to start and end our trip.

Oh great, now I've got to add Barcelona to my list of must sees. Amazing! Can't believe that army guy statue, how do they sit so still? wow. Is that thing with the big head an actual person standing there with a mask thing on or just a statue? Kind of creepy. I don't think I would leave that bakery :)

Thanks for sharing! If it weren't for the screaming kids in the playroom, I might feel as though I've been on a cruise too ;)
