Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera, was the last private residence designed by Gaudí

Construction started on Sagrada Família on March 19, 1882. Completion of the cathedral will be in 2026. The architect, Antoni Gaudí, died after being hit by a tram in 1926

Brisk walk after watching the football match

I had wanted to visit Barcelona, for years. I wanted to experience the air, food, and most of all, the culture. So, I set my goal and started to look for flights that worked for me. Finally, I was able to find a responsibly priced ticket, so I booked it! No hesitation, no reconsiderations, I just booked it. Right after I booked, I thought to myself, “What have I done?!” Ha!

Once I got over the initial shock of booking a flight to a country I didn’t know much about, I started telling some of my friends of my Barcelona summer plans. Everyone had the same reaction, “That’s one of my favorite cities!” And now that my trip has concluded, I can now say the same…Barcelona is one of my favorite cities. Barcelona had parties and celebrations for nearly everything. Whilst I was there, I partook in a “Full Moon” party,  “Fiesta Del Born” celebration, European football game watching parties, then there were parties to recover from the previous party, and parties to celebrate the happiness you felt from the pervious party!  I enjoyed eating lunch between 14:00-15:00 (2-4PM) and dinner at around 21:30-22:00 (9:30-10PM). I walked and took the metro to all the places I needed to get to. The air was clear, the food was fresh, and the breeze was warm. I met some incredible people that I will never forget. This trip was by far one of the best I have had thus far. See you when I see you, Barcelona!

Here I am in Iceland for a quick pitstop before I head to Barcelona. This spring/summer is one of the gloomiest Iceland has seen in many, many years. Odd, yes, since the rest of Europe doesn’t know what to do with all the heat and sunshine they have been getting.  Apparently, Iceland rained Every. Single. Day in the month of May, and here we are in June and it’s been raining ever since I have been here. Oh well. I suppose people don’t come here for the sunshine, do they?

Entering Rauðfeldsgjá through the massive crack on the Eastern side known as Botnsfjall. -1C

On my way to falling down

Gerðuberg Cliffs were hard to get to, but totally worth the mini hike in the snow. 0C

Prepping to climb into the massive crack known as Botnsfjall.-1C

 Such an adventure! I had the opportunity to visit a part of Iceland I had never been to. Starting off in the city, the weather was fine…about 2C (36F), but as soon as I made it in the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, temps dropped and a snowstorm presented itself!

Stockholm, Sweden

Two adorable little summer houses in  Gustavsberg, Stockholms Län, Sweden

Skogskyrkogården is a cemetery located in the Enskededalen district south of central Stockholm, Sweden. It’s the most beautiful cemetery I have ever seen.

I was told by friends and colleagues that this is the worst time to visit Sweden since it’s the greyest most rainiest time of the year…The weather was in my favor as it didn’t rain at all, until the last day! It was quite humid and freezing though.  I explored the city and a bit of the countryside during my visit. I hope to be back during a summer!

Ground floor indoor pool. You see this as you walk in from the entrance

One set of hot baths in the basement. There were many others

Aqua class

Outdoor rooftop/ street level swimming pools

This morning I treated myself to the Gellért Baths. The Gellért Baths are situated in a complex that consists of the Hotel Gellért in Buda, and other swimming pools that you may access with your one-day pass. There are baths in the basement, ground level, and rooftop. You can spend all day here. There are lockers and towels that are available to use for a small fee. I did my best to dip in all the baths before I left. This place is a must visit!
