Our trip to Barcelona was amazing! It's a beautiful city and the weather was perfect. I will keep this short on words since this post is very photo heavy. With such a picturesque city it was hard to cull through my favorites.
Arriving in Barca.
Outside of our apartment.
Just around the corner was the beautiful Santa Maria del Mar Church (built between 1329-1383).

It's quite common to see these giants in ceremonies, festivals and celebrations. Each city or region has their own. We found a display of them along La Rambla.Day 3
With money in our hands (thanks to Ron's dad for wiring us some) we were ready to explore more of the city. We opted for the double decker, Bus Turisitc, as our mode of transportation.
Antoni Guadi's Casa Batlló. Pretty cool!
Back on the double decker bus.
La Boqueria Market.
At the other end of La Rambla on the Christopher Columbus Monument.
Taking the bus to the symbol of Barcelona (and Gaudi's dream), La Sagrada Familia.
After a lovely family nap, we got back on the bus to head back to Montjuic for the Magic Fountain Show.
Lights, water and music are brought together to for a fun show.
The music in the magic fountain show changed from classical (and scary according to Kaitlyn) to Top 40. That (and a little ice cream) made all the difference for Kaitlyn.
I just loved all the little alley ways, narrow streets and cute sidewalk cafes.
Kaitlyn was not cool with the underground transportation so the girls took a taxi and we all met up at the Hard Rock Cafe. We couldn't head back to Israel without indulging in one more yummy meal.
