Adiós Barcelona Bonjour Paris

Saying goodbye to a wonderful city is never easy! We loved Barcelona and both hope to come back one day. We had the most wonderful time, ate great food and had the best host, Paddy.

Our last day in Barcelona was spent exploring the amazing Casa Batlló built and designed by the one and only Antonio Gaudí. Here are some photos of the house:

After wishing we had an apartment at Casa Batlló; we did some much needed shopping and then made our way down to the beach for the sunset!

We said goodbye to Barcelona and hopped on the train to Paris – just wait until you see those photos (they are on our cameras, I’ll post them when we’re back)

This beautiful work of iron art is just a 5 minute walk from our hotel so of course we had to spend the afternoon and evening there
