When we decided to go to Primavera in Barcelona we thought hey why not make a massive trip out of it. Especially when you see spending 24 hours in Paris at the beginning and the end of your trip is the cheaper option. Upon arriving in Paris we got the metro straight to the Notre Dame, because although I spent a summer in Paris Colin had never been there. Touristy things were the name of the game.
The Eiffel Tower was the next stop for us and we immediately became those people with the selfie sticks that everyone hates. Hence the stupid faces. But we did end up with cute photos. The second day that we spent in Paris was at the end of our trip, with no sleep due to a ridiculously early flight. Which meant that trying to see Sacre Coeur was not the happiest one. But with such a beautiful site, you can’t be upset for too long.
Then there was Barcelona. A totally new experience for me. I had never been to Barcelona, much less Spain. But I knew when I got to our apartment, that I was wanting to stick around for a while. I mean any city with a beach has got my heart, but oh man was that water cold. It was not swimming weather for me that’s for sure.
Barcelona is decked out with amazing sites. From Sagrada Família to Park Güell to the Dali Museum, my art and architecture love was definitely fulfilled. If you haven’t done so go to Sagrada Família and pay the extra euros to go up and check out the view. I mean take a look, you can see all of Barcelona and parts of the church up close. Park Güell was packed so it was a little harder to see everything you wanted. Still it was a stunning site to be seen. The Dali Museum was a dream and a half. It’s Dali, what else is there to say?
Primavera… just wow. A long weekend of music with some of the greatest people Glasgow has to offer. Tame Impala, Sigur Rós, Animal Collective just to name a few. With the heat of the sun and all of the stages being within walking distance, this is one of the best music festivals that you could imagine. I was so impressed and I had so much fun with this goofy bunch.
