Travel: Such a beautiful horizon, Barcelona!

Hello beauties. In April, I visited Barcelona and it was wonderful, so I thought I would share some pictures from my trip. If you've already visited Barcelona, this will be to refresh your memory, and if you haven't I hope you get inspired to visit.

The journey to Barcelona was quite stressful as I wasn't taking a straight flight from Riga due to the price, rather I went through Vilnus. I took the bus to Vilnus which took approximately 4 hours and then took the plane from Vilnus to Barcelona. Being in Vilnus for the first time and having 2 hours between the arrival of the bus and the flight, I was stressing over finding the minibus from the bus station to the airport as well not missing my flight for whatever reason. In the end I was able to get to the plane on time and finally arrived in Barcelona at midnight. Coming back was quite easy as I already knew where what was so I actually ended up with some extra time before the bus.

The weather wasn't great. The weeks before that, it was so warm everyone was already sunbathing. But when I arrived it was quite windy and cold which made me sorry I took mostly Summer clothes. My first day in Barcelona involved mainly drinks with friends. After that, we had the Easter holidays which we spent strolling on the beach and visiting tourist sites such as Sagrada Familia, the National Art Museum of Catalonya and the Magic fountain. I was quite sad I wasn't able to see the Magic fountain in the dark when it lights up but we were so beat when we arrived at 6pm to the fountain. We also visited the Picasso Museum where we got to see his works and read all about his life. 

Another place we visited which I loved was the Aquarium. I'm pisces myself so I guess we just have some sort of bond. There were so many lovely fishes, seahorses and other sea creatures. And there were sharks! I don't think I've ever been so close to sharks! I could seriously see their teeth so upclose and personal, which makes you think of all the horror movies you've watched.

Oh and I ate so much paella one night I couldn't move afterwards. So, that's some info on my trip. It really was so amazing and I had the best time. Iff you haven't been, make sure you book a trip.

Enjoy the pictures; there are quite a few.
