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
