Barcelona, Spain.

I just find this place spectacular. It is like a living, breathing epicenter of artistic inspiration. Antoni Gaudi and Joan Miro, what more do you need? I have a guide book that describes Barcelona in this way:

'What Barcelona's got, she flaunts. And you name it, she's got it. Spain's second city is cradled between the last gasp of the Pyrenees and the shores of the Mediterranean, and is blessed with art, sun, sea, sand and sexy people in every direction.' 

I couldn't say it any more succinctly. So on this trip I started at the Park Güell which was designed of course by Guadi. The views from there are quite spectacular as it is perched high above the city. Then I headed over to another high point in the city, Montjuïc. I took the cable car up to the top and walked my way down, stopping at the Mies van de Rohe designed Pavello.
