Travel Photo of the Day (Jan. 7)

The view of Barcelona from the top of our hotel. Β I was amazed by how the buildings are packed in.

  1. Barcelona was my first travel abroad experience. I tagged along with my dad on a business trip when I was 15. It’s also where I was mugged for the first (and only) time! Just outside of the olympic stadium. Other than that, good times!

    Great shot!

      I did see the Olympic stadium. Great views up there. So sorry to hear about the mugging! And glad to know that was the only time, and I hope the very last time for you. Barcelona is one of my favorite places and it is at the top of the places I would love to retire in. What a great experience for a 15 year-old (the city, not the mugging).

  2. Are you there now or is this a “holiday memory”? Love Barcelona – city and beach together (like Malaga)!

    Awww Barcelona! I miss it, the worst thing what ever happened to me was loosing all my pictures 😦 I went to Valencia and Barcelona last October and had an amazing time but came back home with my broken memory card in my camera and I have no idea what happened 😦 it was heartbreaking, but slowly getting over it πŸ™‚ The city looks packed in your picture πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing the picture and bringing some nice memories back πŸ˜€

    • TBM says:

      Kristina I am so sorry to hear about your memory card. That would be devastating. Barcelona is a magical place with so much to see. I hope you can visit it again someday and recapture those memories.

    I would like to spend a few days there, but I would never move to live in such a huge city πŸ˜‰

    • TBM says:

      There is so much to see and do in Barcelona. I’m really starting to like big city life. Having lived in Boston and now London I don’t remember much about wide open spaces.

    Major claustrophobia going on there… at least for me.

  11. The Hook says:

    Those structures are pretty jammed in, aren’t they?

  12. We were in Barcelona Sept. 2009! Barca was beautiful, be we were kind of partial to Madrid. Thanks for the memory. πŸ™‚
