Wanderlust Wednesday: Barcelona

I’ve been to Barcelona three times since I moved to Europe two years ago. I know. It’s a lot, right? Admittedly, once was for work, but I made sure there was lots of play — namely tapas eating and cava sipping — too. It’s also the only city in Spain I’ve seen. While there might be something wrong with that according to a few Spaniards I’ve encountered and I would love to see more of the country, Barcelona is all I know for now. From the cobblestoned lanes of the gothic quarter, to the sun-drenched beach under the Iberian sun, from the plates of jamón, paella and croquettes, to the abundant and inexpensive wine, you can probably gather why I love it so much.
