Barcelona & Girona

Spent a few great days in Barcelona and Girona with my girl, Hannah!  Here are a few highlights from our adventure.   
Even though we almost froze to death, ran out of gas, and came inches from a crash that would have cost us our security deposit... scooters were definitely the best way to see the city.

Güell, situated on hill of El Carmel in the Gràcia district was one of my favorite places to visit.  Not only was the architecture and design fascinating, but the view all the way to ocean was breathtaking.  We arrived as the sun was starting to set.

We definitely had tons of fun people watching along Las Ramblas
Beautiful beaches, sunshine, and food!

Walking the old fortress wall in Girona was definitely worth the trouble of taking the Ryan Air flight out of Girona instead of Barcelona proper.  This town is charming and really interesting and worth taking the time to explore.
