A Glimpse of Barcelona



Sorry for the radio silence this past week. Despite staying in a business hotel in Barcelona we didn't have internet the first day and then I was sharing with DH.

Barcelona was so beautiful - unexpectedly so...I am left with memories of scent of pine in the cool of the parks, the balconies and shuttered windows and the food...I ate so much at times i thought I would burst....

Simply wonderful and i worked. Yes, I was good little writer and didn't spend my days sightseeing. However i did have the most magical day seeing Kate Harrison's Barcelona which included having coffee with Matt Dunn. So Barcelona offered beauty, inspiration and writers to talk too - perfect really if you include the superb wine....

Inspirational, Liz. What an accomplished photographer you are. I loved the fountain and the drinking taps with the three faces in particular.

Thank you for sharing!
