My favorite trip to Spain was my last one. We flew from Germany to Barcelona for a long weekend, intending to also add Andorra to the visit. It turned out to be a great trip.
We had no concrete plans but just walked around a lot.
A tribute to Christopher Columbus? Why? What a terrible human.
We stumbled into multiple churches for their architecture. I can never help myself but make this comment in churches: “Wow, it’s amazing they had all this money laying around. Crazy that there were no poor people at the time they built it.”
We also went to a hilltop park called Tibidabo, which has an amusement park and a church together. If that doesn’t seem ironically perfect, I don’t know what your definition of irony is.
The next day, we drove out to Andorra, which is another post.
On our 4th day in Barcelona, we visited the ‘under construction…still’ overpriced megalith of Sagrada Familia. Unreal that people can blow this much on building another unneeded church in a country with lots of poor people. People can’t eat religion when they’re hungry.
Barcelona is kinda dirty. Lots of people really love it, but I’ve been there 3 times, and it’s never really ‘clicked’ with me. However, it didn’t ‘dislike’ it on this trip, and I went there to get to Andorra with a friend who’d never been to Spain or Andorra before, so we had good times together.This entry was posted in Barcelona, Europe, Spain
