Barcelona (3-7 Jan. 2014)

Four sunny and incredible days. Whoever plans to fly to a warm place during this cold and foggy winter, Barcelona is one of the best locations. The food, the people, the weather and the city are one of the most welcoming and comforting places a tourist can be confronted with.

Below are some pictures of my exciting and amusing trip:

18°C at 5.30pm on January 3, winter season – not for Barcelona though

Sunset over Port Vell, Barcelona’s main port, located at the end of Avenida del Paralel & La Rambla

Hotel W Barcelona – at first sight Dubai’s hotel Burj al Arab could come to one’s mind

Colorful decorations in Antoni Gaudí’s Casa Batlló

Clear skies above Barcelona and Casa Batlló
La Sagrada Familia – another project by Gaudí

Parc Güell, Gaudí’s projects are everywhere
