Hey my lovely friends!

Hope you all are having a fantastic week! As mentioned in my previous post, just to recap, I went on vacation for the past 3 weeks to Spain and India and thought I could share some shots I captured during my travel 🙂 I will be splitting this travel post into 3 parts: First part would be pictures of the main attractions that I visited in Barcelona. The second part would be pictures of attractions and the streets of Madrid and last but not lease the third part will be a few photos of the beautiful city of Bangalore and Chennai in India!

Just an FYI, despite the unexpected theft of my phone and belongings in Barcelona, I’m so happy that my photos were backed up on my iCloud 🙂 Also, this is my first travel post so hope you guys enjoy it 🙂

Let’s get started with Barcelona first! As you know, Spain is the widely popular for its incredible architecture so will be posting pics in a slideshow form (wait for the next photo just in case you miss it since the slideshow is kinda slow lol) to portray Spain’s astounding forms of modern and historic architectural buildings 🙂

So the first stop was the Casa Milà or La Pedrera building and is known for its famous modern structure in Barcelona!

Another one of the city’s major and most popular modern structures is the Sagrada Família! It’s basically a basilica or a church for worship,  built by a well renowned artist and architect, Gaudi. It has been built in 1883 and is still under construction even today. Wasn’t able to view the inside of the temple but was just mesmerized by its astonishing structure. Was just amazed how the historical forms and expressions were carved and detailed to portray the Gothic style culture!

As we were touring around the beautiful city of Catalonia, Barcelona, we took a quick stop to view Park Güell which is a gorgeous landscape of mind-blowing views and gardens and was also built by Gaudi. As we short of time, we weren’t able to go inside but here are a few pics of the different iconic structures surrounding the natural park!

Here all the photos I was able to capture in Barcelona. There aren’t too much since I had only a day to sightsee most of the city but there are a lot more pics in Madrid since we had about 3 days to explore the city!

To clarify again, part 2 will be about Madrid and Part 3 will have India pics!

Hope you guys enjoyed this post and would appreciate some feedback since this is my first travel post in my travel diaries! PS. I’ve travelled a lot more places in the past few years so need to catch up on those and write a blog post about them…coming up later in a few months 🙂

Next post: Spain and India Trip Part 2: Madrid so stay tuned 🙂

Until then,

  1. I love this. The photos are so great. I really want to go to Barcelona, I’m so close and have never been. I’m sorry your things were stolen, that must have been so bad. You need to be really careful in European cities, especially as a tourist. I can’t wait for part 2. 🙂 ❤
