Guys! This post is months over due! Ugh, I've just been procrastinating. I've been lacking excitement, creativity and overall drive. Have you guys ever felt in a rut? How do you guys overcome it if so? I'd loved to hear what works to get you all out of a slump? Email me!
What can I say about Barcelona?! This is going to be a two parter (maybe more) , hence the "Part 1" in the title, because there were just so many beautiful sights in this Catalonia region. Look, I will be completely honest; although Barcelona claims to be a "metropolitan city" I want to say it isn't. At least not for me. Now... it may have been me, but I found the city to be filled with older citizens who were either confused or did not care for me at all. I mean, I guess they were more confused and curious by me. I think it makes me feel better believe that. Traveling solo as a brown skin young woman with bright purple curly hair definitely made people stop, stare and glare. I do have to say the millennials of Barcelona found me to be intriguing, they were almost mystified by my presences. The older generation for the most part glared at me with distain, or least that how it felt to me. However besides the times I felt uncomfortable by the stares, Barcelona was pretty epic! I would go back in a heartbeat! First the food was not only flavorful and hearty but the portions were respectable! Don't you hate going to restaurants and finding out only after your food arrives that the portions are sample size! Ugh! Not here, at times there was so much food I thought I wouldn't be able to finish it, 99.9% of the time cleaned my plate. Next up is public transportation! Look being from New York, I am spoiled by trains and buses that run 24 hours 7 days a week. I didn't realize how much I depended on public mass transportation, until I traveled to places that had horrible to no trains or buses at all. Barcelona was definitely not one of those places, I took transit as if I were a seasoned local. One moment I could be roaming around downtown and the next I could be laying out on one of the many beautiful beaches in a matter of mins. I could go on and on about why you should book a flight to Barcelona and why it's a downright EPIC place but I think I've rambles enough for one or two post. Enjoy this babe's view of Barcelona.
