Barcelona is my new favorite big city. I knew the architecture would be out of this world, the food amazing, the wine a’ plenty. No one told me there would be beautiful beaches, that you can walk everywhere, that you can be on a mountain overlooking the city one moment and on the beach looking back it the next. There’s Gaudi, 25-course lunches, soccer (football), Spanish AND Catalan, nude beaches, tapas, cider, and dinner at midnight. Barcelona is sexy.
