In between mountains and the sea

Barcelona was a great welcome for my first time to Spain. The weather was perfect and just what I needed after leaving a cold and rainy France. The city is situated in the most perfect spot on earth- between the mountains and the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. What an experience walking down the Ramblas, seeing La Boquería market, and then climaxing the walk with the beautiful harbor. I love the Catalan culture and people, so passionate and full of life.

Tour de Spain?

Barcelona is bicycle-friendly city (and pedestrian too)-some areas having separate lanes for bicyclists. There are even bicycle rental spots all over the city for it's residents- grab a bike at Universitat and than drop it off a the harbor. We met one local who pays for a years rental and then just can pick-up and drop-of without having to store the bike. For tourists, the cost is a little more in comparison, but an experience nonetheless.

    I should hopefully get a chance this cold weekend in Chicago to put up some of my Charleston/Asheville pics. Looking for your new pics as well.
