A personal announcement, and beautiful pictures from Barcelona

Hi all - so for those following my Europe trip, this will be the last post for Spain. I have many more countries to share with you, and next up will be Italy! But first, lets say goodbye to Spain with a hodgepodge of images from beautiful Barcelona.

And my personal announcement? On Feb. 14th I am leaving for Spain to live with my boyfriend until the end of June! Don't worry though, I will still be blogging with the same consistency, just 6 hours ahead of you guys on the east coast. After June, depending on where/if boyfriend goes to grad school, I will announce my new home, which will probably be somewhere on the east coast.

Okay, here's a little review of the 9 weeks I spent backpacking through Europe. I've now covered Spain in previous posts.

Here is a round up of posts from my travels throughout Spain

•Introduction to my European backpacking trip and a list of places we visited
Galicia - Baiona and Isle de Cies
Galicia - the coast, some charming vineyards, and Pontevedra
Santiago de Compostela and gorgeous hidden beaches
Gorgeous mountain lakes of Picos de Europa
Stunning mountains - Picos de Europa
Bilbao and San Sebastian
Beautiful Barcelona

Art Nouveau dream house by Gaudi in Barcelona


Now for saying goodbye to Spain with the last of my Barcelona images -


The colorful, delicious markets...

The work of Gaudi everywhere, such as the Casa Amatiller


Stunning ceiling


Reminds me of Morocco!



In Park Guell, you can tour the house where Gaudi lived. Gaudi did not design this house, it was originally owned by his father.



What a humble bedroom!


Most of the house is used to showcase his hardware and furniture design, which you'll see below

LOVE this door know.
