Throwback Thursday ~ Barcelona Travels

Currently my sister is spending the semester abroad in Copenhagen and as she ventures off on her adventures, it got me reminiscing about the time I spent in Spain.  I can’t believe it’s been over three years since I spent three and a half months in Barcelona but sometimes it feels like just last year.

This little gem happened to be my first attempt at blogging.  It’s safe to say I fell in love with it.  Sometimes I go back to my old posts and scroll through the thoughts and pictures, amazed at how much has and hasn’t changed over the years.   Good times and some more stressful times of course, but it was one helluva growth opportunity.  Sure, every 21 year old says that about the time they spent in Europe 😉 But really, there’s way too much to say about that time so I’ll just leave it in the best way I know how – pictures.

>> I think that I love living in New York because it reminds me of Barcelona in a way.  The endless routes to walk across the city, the tall(ish) buildings, something new and surprising to see around every corner, and oh, the walking.  What can I say, I love to be active <<

  1. Loveeeeeeee. I miss traveling. And I’m seriously so jealous you’re going to Denmark. Barcelona was amazing but nothing will ever compare to Copenhagen. You’re going to absolutely love it!
