Barcelona, Spain

Well, this post is super late, as we went to Barcelona in January! And it’s already May.  Clearly, I’m not good at the blogging thing!  Anyways, Barcelona in January turned out to be a great time to go.  The weather was fairly warm, and it wasn’t overly crowded with tourists! I hate going to super touristy places when its overcrowded.  We had a fabulous time here, and an even MORE fabulous stay at the most beautiful hotel, Cotton House. I highly recommend staying here. As some of you know, my passion/work background is interior design, and I was dying over the decor and vibe of this hotel. Barcelona is one of those cities that literally has it all….city, mountains, and ocean…a combo that can’t be beat in my eyes!! Oh, and the food is amazing! Enjoy the pics!

Go to Parc Guell in the morning, less tourists. We we’re able to climb to the top of this by ourselves, pop a bottle of champagne, sit and enjoy the view. Such a special moment for us!

These stairs leading to the top were a bit scary
