I have been dying to go to Spain since I studying abroad in 2003.  Spain & Turkey were the two countries that I’d wanted to visit, but just never found the time.  And since Spain is literally on the way home from Italy, Chris & I decided to extend our trip a bit and experience something new!  I wanted to fall in love with Spain.  I wanted to soak in the little moments that make a new country so incredible.  But, with temps soaring near 105 degrees, and inadvertently landing our trip on a holiday weekend, Spain was tough.  It was like sightseeing in Palm Springs on the Fourth of July.  But, I’ve come home with a better understanding of siesta, a curiosity as to why anyone travels in the summer and continued hunger for the tiniest little plates of tapas.

We visited Barcelona & Madrid.  Barcelona is such an international city, a melting pot of so many cultures.  It’s relaxed and vivacious.  We probably stumbled upon five different street fairs, celebrations and parties where we were just invited in to be a part of the festivities.  I have no idea what we were celebrating, but I felt excited and invigorated!  It’s a gorgeous city!

So, a few snaps from our few days in Barcelona…
