Where was I ?

Hey hey I am sure you are all wondering where I was during all this time!! (No I am just joking I am sure most of you don’t really care loool)

After coming back from Australia in December 2014 I didn’t plan any long trips at all. I only enjoyed a family vacation during Christmas time. I went a week in Barcelona and I fell in Love with this city, In December we had 20 degres the sky was blue and the food was excellent. What a wonderful time we had, walking on the streets visiting the museums and the sagrada familia it was very great.

You cannot go to Barcelona and not visit the many churches and cathedral in the town. P1120964

The ceiling of the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar and the following pictures are a few pictures I took inside the basilica Sagrda Famila. the architecture of the place is amazing and it is a work in progress. The original plans were destroyed during a fire and now the architecture long after Gaudi’s death are working using the miniatures to draw the plans and continue the work. I won’t give you an history classe of the place but the waiting is worth it because once you go inside and specially if you use the headphones you learn so much about the history of each area of the building.
