Travel: Barcelona, Spain.

Barcelona is an amazing city! I was there for 4 days and managed to cover most of it with a rented bicycle. Barcelona oozes creativity with paintings, sculptures and immense architecture everywhere you look. The locals are really friendly and helped me find places several times. I dident like the fact that everything is so expensive there. I got 103 euros for £100 which was a very bad exchange rate. But apart from that everything was excellent. The beach was nice and clean. The fashion isn't saying much but the graffiti scene is killing it - easily one of the top graffiti citys in Europe. A new article will follow shortly after this one about Barcelonas graffiti scene. Enjoy!

I found this structure/sculpture near Hotel Arts.

I really liked the vibrant red in this flower so I photographed it.

The local government in Barcelona encourage people to ride bicycles and I have to say Barcelona is one of the most cycle friendly cities I've ever been too.
