I just LOVE Barcelona. Actually, I never need a reason for visiting the capital city of Catalonia. Returning home from my creative travel experience in Galicia? Barcelona is on the way, “halfway” between Santiago de Compostela and Vienna. Besides, my beautiful friend & colleague Caroline Couret, of the International Creative Tourism Network and Barcelona’s creative tourism platform “Barcelona Creativa” (check it out!) lives here.
“Estoy tan contenta que estés aquí Elena! – I am so happy that you are here!” Sometimes, one visit makes two people happy: Never would we have experienced what we did experience without each other’s company. What a day! Wandering off without any great expectations (simply floating on the “happiness of being”!), we found that Vienna, of all places, is building castles in the sand of Barcelona. That a new hotel offers magnificent, 360° panoramic views over town. And that the Catalonian people themselves, well … build their own (human) towers! I have only ever seen this on TV. And now, I am right in the middle of the action. Wow. What a fascinating experience!! Check this out.
