Sitting in the café near my hotel, the time had come for me to try it again. What better place to enjoy it than Barcelona! While years had passed since I tried it, this seemed the Spanish thing to do.
As the first mocha colored aroma filled my nose, I took a sip. My taste buds hadn’t changed.
I still didn’t like coffee.
Fortunately, I was here to savor the city of Barcelona. While the years have passed and my disdain for coffee hasn’t changed, I developed a taste for Spain.
Instead of pleasing my palate, my eyes were served a savory treat with my favorite places to see in Barcelona.
A cup of coffee and timeless beauty in Barcelona
Cities grow, cultures evolve, and things change. However, some places to see in Barcelona are eternal – La Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi and his Block of Discord, Park Guell, Las Ramblas, Barceloneta beaches.
Barcelona, beaches, and football left an impression on me as the city became one of my favorite cities in Spain.
In my Barcelona photos, the words and descriptions are left up to you. So let your passions be stirred, wear your FC Barcelona jersey, and unleash your inner Catalan as I share my favorite places to see in Barcelona.
So don’t hold it against me if I don’t love café con leche. Enjoy your cup of coffee and take it from me.
If travel is a book, Barcelona deserves a couple of pages.
