Barcelona – the heart of Catalunya, a bustling metropolis with the soul of an artist, holds the promise of so many possibilities.
If you come here to visit, you’ll find a piece of yourself, a memory, or a dream waiting to catch you unawares. In the artwork and grand canvases of Gaudi that hover like a living being, you may find that inspiration you were looking for. On the rain drenched steps in front of the cathedral in the gothic quarter where you see a couple in love, lost in their world, you might fondly remember a great love of your own. In the joy of the newly-weds who celebrate amidst the almost child-like magic that is Parc Guell you will seek to find your own.
As you flow along in the the mist that hovers over the mountains outside the city, as your hot air balloon skims treetops, you might be awestruck at the grand canvas of nature and at how small you are in the scheme of things. In the silent hallways of the old bull ring, you may remember the battles won and lost and keep a moments quiet in memory of an era past.
But then, in the warmth of the pubs where the tapas and wine flow freely, the conversation flows easy, and the rhythm of the music gets you tapping, you find that the best way to truly experience Barcelona’s past is to celebrate this moment in time.
