Barcelona 2013 - part 1

Well, I've actually been trying to make this entry for more than 2 weeks now. But you know how it is...

Last month I spent 3.5 days in Barcelona. :-)
I really loved the city. There are so many interesting and beautiful places to visit, and I really only had time to see a very small number of them. So I'm pretty sure I'll be back someday.

Still managed to take more than 700 photos. ;-) I narrowed it down to "only" about 260 pics to show to people though. *gg* I've already posted them on FB, so if you've seen them there you won't actually find anything new here. Except perhaps a couple more comments or so. *g*
I'm gonna split them into 2 or 3 seperate entries as not them make them too long.
In any case, be warned that they are very image-heavy. ;-)


Las Ramblas
Very popular street, 1.2 km long, tree-lined pedestrian zone in the middle of it.

There are always several living statues there. I think the Alien one was my favourite (and I don't even like those movies *gg*).

This woman was the best, btw. *lol* She was screaming like mad, so either she was genuinely scared or just acting really convincingly. ;D

Ja, die ersten 1,5 Tage war das Wetter super. Das sind die Bilder mit wunderschön blauem Himmel. *gg*
Die letzten beiden Tage (Dienstag & Mittwoch) war es leider durchgehend bewölkt, und ab nachmittags gab es dann sogar immer mal wieder Regenschauer (besonders schlimm am Mittwoch, da hat es dann später nur noch geregnet)...

Naja, trotzdem Spaß gehabt. :D Und die Stadt ist echt toll!
