This weekend I traveled to Barcelona, Spain and it was such a great adventure. I traveled with a good friend of mine and when traveling with a great partner, it makes the whole journey that much better.
On top of traveling with a great friend, I loved Barcelona because of the food and the sea. I grew up loving lakes and oceans, and to see this city surrounded by beautiful beaches and the great expanse of the sea was so calming and peaceful for me.
In addition, the food everywhere was cheap, fresh, and delicious. Seafood is a large part of Barcelona’s cuisine since the sea surrounds this city, and the seafood was so fresh. There is a huge difference in the taste and texture of seafood in Cleveland, Ohio as opposed to that in Barcelona for obvious reasons. There was also a huge bustling food market where they sold all sorts of fruits, meats, sweets, and more. It was very lively and incredibly fun, and although everyone says that Barcelona is dangerous and full of pick-pocketers, as long as you keep an eye on your belongings, then you should be fine.
I would love to go back to Barcelona someday!
