Stolen colour from Barcelona

Firstly I'd like to apologise on the amount of photo's there are in this post. I didn't intend on using this many but when it came down to picking I had way more than I thought I did. I'd choose one and the next one would be just as beautiful, so I ended up taking them all. (Not really but almost).

Recently I visited Barcelona and I was well and truly b l o w n  a w a y. I'm guessing it was because my expectations weren't awfully high. They really should have been. I can honestly say Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever visited in my life. It was so alive, so vibrant and so beautiful.
One of my favourite parts though would have had to be the famous Spanish mosaics. It was on walls and there were stores covered in mosaics in all different patterns and colours (and that was just the outside of the stores). I don't even think I need to explain how colourful Barcelona was, I tried to capture it as much as I could in the photos.

A place famous for it's mosaics and tiles was Park Güell. Park Güell is most famously known for it's beautiful view over looking the city. In front is a long bench made up of the most beautiful mosaic tiles painted a variety of bright and vibrant colours. I can't imagine how long it would have taken to hand paint all the tiles in the park. The view from Park Güell lets you see truly how large Barcelona is. You get an all round city view. I could have walked around for hours. Besides the lookout there is so much more to Park Güell, you have people busking throughout the park, people selling things, beautiful greenery and scenic walks. I'm so glad we found it and if you ever go to Barcelona definitely put it to the top of your list!
 
Then there were the famous Barcelona markets. They had things ranging from food, jewellery, bags, hats, souvenirs, juices, flowers, clothes and so much more. You could look forever.
Markets are truly my favourite thing about European countries you can collect so many pieces for such a good price. Everything you find is so unique and individual and are home made by the locals. If my suitcase had let me I would have bought everything and taken it all home with me.

There is no better feeling than waking up in the morning to the heat and  noise from the bustling street La Rambla to walking over to the food markets and getting a fresh juice and fruit cup for breakfast. Plus you can do that all for under 5 Euro! The perfect morning if you ask me.

Before I ramble for days on how much I loved Barcelona, I'll just stop and tell you, you all need to put visiting Barcelona near the top of your bucket list.
