Barcelona luuurve

I've never eaten or drank this much in all my life!! Okay, that might be an exaggeration but Barcelona has so much amazing food to offer.
This lil guy was alive and well before we decided it looked good enough to eat. Sorry boo but you're going to be my dinna!!

Last meal of the trip
El Quim was another foodie destination in the Barcelona tour book.

Barcelona was such a memorable place. The weather was beautiful, the people were super friendly, transportation was easily navigable, and I once again became very taken by the Spanish language. What an overall lovely city.
