This past fall, TW and I packed our bags for an adventure across Northern Spain. I had so yearned to return to the passionate country after living there a year – immersing myself in the fiery language, proud culture, and flavorful cuisine.
This week’s posts will be dedicated to our Spanish trip, beginning with our arrival in Barcelona.
Lunch at The White Bar in the Born district. Ultra-chic restaurant that is the perfect place for a reprieve before exploring my favorite, hip neighborhoods: the Born and Gothic quarters.
The Museu Picasso is a gem of a museum situated in a former palace on a haunting cobblestone street in the Gothic area. Noteworthy for the massive collection spanning each of Picasso’s diverse periods, as well as for the building itself. I especially adore the room devoted to his obscure pottery.
Dinner in Barcelona simply does not exist before 10pm. When it was finally a socially acceptable time to go out, we squeezed in among locals at lively hot spot, La Vinya del Senyor. Starving by that time, we ordered an array of traditional tapas and half glasses of wine to match each.
