Barcelona

Two Days in Barcelona

Spain was never been top of my list for visiting. There isn’t any reason why not – it might just be that I don’t know a lot about the country. Spanish history is a topic that has evaded me over the years, and I wasn’t familiar with any famous landmarks in Spain. I knew there […]
