A Postcard from Barcelona

A couple of months back, we took a little trip to Barcelona for a couple of days. While the OH had a conference to attend, I took in the sights, sounds and, most importantly, the tastes of the city. At the moment, with the weather getting increasingly autumnal here in London, I’m beginning to pine for the sunnier climes of Spain and the long, lazy evenings of drinking great wine and tucking into tasty tapas. Feast your eyes on some of the highlights of this vibrant Catalonian city.
