Barcelona Barcelona!

At the end of November we spent four days in Barcelona, I loved this city and will go back so much to do and see. Amazing architecture, great food………
So here are some images.

We enjoyed wandering the streets and alleyways around the area of La Rambla, sitting in bars and cafes enjoying a glass of wine. Or sitting on the Rooftop Terrace of  Hotel 1898 and looking at the view over the city, it's a shame we could have spent more time up there because the weather changed it rained and rained and……..


View from the Roof Top Terrace Hotel 1898

Visiting galleries and churches…….

None of the photos that I took at the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia do the place any justice, it really needs to be seen to be believed. It's truly amazing!!!!!

Antoni Gaudi
Gate for Casa Vicens
I even found inspiration for my next City and Guilds project in the Pablo Picasso Museum? I know what a surprise, I don't really like his work but it was like a lighten bolt, 'This is just what I've been looking for, quick Dave, wheres the shop I need to buy the post cards'!!!! Watch this space.

Today was the first time back at class since this trip and Janice likes my ideas, so here we go…..
