The Gallery :: Barcelona, part 1

I sit here, culling through hundreds of photographs, trying to decide where to start. Travel like this seems to always leave me speechless. So much seen, so much learned, so much felt. So much to share. I travelled with my son to Barcelona and Madrid, Spain, on a trip with his high school Spanish class […]

Oh I recognize soooo many of these senes from my trips to Barcelona. Love that city. If you are interested, search “Barcelona” on my sight to see more picks. You’ll be surprised at some similarities :)

I have never been to Barcelona. Looks like a beautiful city to explore and to have a camera in.

I’ve never wanted to go to Spain until now. Wow!!

I haven’t been to Spain,
but my mom went with
my brother on HIS high
school trip and they were
both smitten and have both
returned several times. So,
I guess it is my time, one
of these years.

I can just imagine how you
tried to capture EVERYTHING
with your camera. A visual
feast, indeed!

Thanks for the peek…..

Your photos from Spain are lovely. It looks so much like Italy. I don’t blame you for taking 400+ photos every day!

I’m getting caught up on your blog. Love these photos and I completely agree about the feeling of expansion you get when you travel. I’m sure you all made great memories.

Hello Friend,

I’ve missed you. Glad you had a great time with you son. I SO wish you and I could travel together…I think we would be two peas in a pod with our cameras…running around clicking away. It’s the best. I think I’ll be home bound for a while though with my new job and student size budget. 😉 Call me. xo, Jess

Beautiful photos!!! I love the architecture and colors. I need to travel to somewhere like Barcelona. Hopefully once the fiance graduates from college. I would love it if you would share with us at Photog Show and Tell Link Party.

[…] My son and I ran away to Spain, I had my cell phone stolen, we had our annual 4th of July celebration, tiled our deck, redecorated my “studio”, entertained out-of-town visitors and juggled a bunch of other changes I can’t wait to begin to share here. […]

[…] first met Bailey on my son’s Spanish class trip to Spain in the spring of 2013. {What an amazing trip that was!} We had an amazing tour company and local […]

And On The Way to Jungle Camp…

We left the comfort of our Bed and Breakfast in Turrialba on our third day. We loaded our bus and headed for the river, which we paddled by raft for two hours, and eventually ended up at the Jungle Camp. We planned to stay there for two nights. Along the way, we made a surprise […]
