Our latest topic together with KlassDSign is Barcelona. :) Somehow it is a word, if you hear it your face lid up, no? Either, because you have been there, (and of course it was a great experience), or because you really want to go there. But definitely not a neutral place for nobody. :)
Barcelona... the home of Hercules, the capital of Catalonia, the center of many artistic movement in Spain... and a kind of 'showroom' of Mr Antoni Gaudi. The whole city looks like a design portfolio or an open exhibition of him. It is beautiful, unmistakable... definitely one of a kind. And I do respect him as an architect, designer, artist.
But this 'Barcelona' post will be not about Gaudi. I tried to collect images that show other sides of the city as well. 'Cause there are so many things, but Gaudi in Barcelona. Beautiful parks, beaches, great restaurants, tapas bars... (ohhhh, so fantastic tapas food!!!) :) ...never-ending streets filled with fashion, design, history.
I had the chance to visit Barcelona only once (I went to visit the Bread & Butter Fashion Fair. Yes, it was a business trip. :) ), but I definitely want to go back and explore more of this sunny, deverse and multicultural metropolitan.
P.S.: I do recommend you though, to start with exploring Gaudi in Barcelona first! X :)
