Barcelona

I was able to explore two countries abroad on my latest trip to Europe. After Prague, Ashley and I headed south to Barcelona, Spain! Here we laid on the most crowded beach I've ever seen, and I fell in love with the city's architect, Antoni Gaudi. His magnificent church the Sagrada Familia, which started construction in 1882 and is projected to complete in 2013, is seriously mouth dropping. After a long uphill hike to his park and once home, Parc Guell, we had lunch overlooking the city and his mosaic work. We watched the fountain light show at Montjuic, while a Harley-Davidson festival was going on of course, and we finished off the trip with a sailboat ride at sunset. Despite our language barriers, it was a successful first part to Spain!
