So instead I give you lots of scenery photos! They're nice. Like them.
|There's that castle. |
I know, you're just longing for a bungalow.
|Good call on that tanning spot.|
|View #1 of Barcelona from Montjuïc|
|Pretty impressive, no?|
There was another place too. Read about it after the jump!
And here it is. The reason everyone is attracted to Barcelona -- the beach.
I have to say that I am the furthest thing from a beach lover. I've got pasty skin and I only come in two shades -- vampire & lobster. So after JMS left back to Madrid (*tears*), I had a day to myself and took a walk along the beach, only ten minutes from S & L's apartment.
|Jealous much? |
Yes, this is a real picture.
But I was so shocked to find that it didn't happen here. It's as if the beach had this hypnotic effect on me. I walked along the beach and worried about absolutely nothing. I just soaked in the beauty of this place and my mind was totally at ease. (Vacation FTW.)
|No stress allowed.|
|It was only around 55F and people were surfing. |
They got cojones in this city.
I guess this kind of goes hand-in-hand with my stress post from a while back. Do you have a spot that you love to go to to de-stress? Let us know in the comments & be sure to stop by for more Barcelona posts next week! (There will be wine involved. Lots of wine.)
P.S. The highlight of my beach day was this guy who was doing some crazy cool exercises on the boardwalk. If I were 65, he'd be the man of my dreams.
|Look at that vigor.|
