And here is the second belated blog on my travels to Barcelona of this year. I had just more or less unpacked my luggage from my trip in July when I booked my next ticket to Barcelona for one week in August. Just five weeks after I returned and I already headed back again, this time without my Bianchi.

This is the first of two belated post of my travels to Barcelona this year. In all the traveling and other things I forgot to post these, even though the travels were really good. In July I traveled to Barcelona not with just my regular additional luggage, but with an extra big case as well for a really interesting trip.

Monica and I have been exchanging options and ideas for a long long time as to where to go on vacation this year and it was mostly hard to find a location where we’d both be able to fly to in a fairly decent way. That was really hard in the beginning of our search, but when we got it, al the pieces suddenly fit together seamlessly.

My time in Barcelone this last Sunday was almost at an end, but there was one more concert to see: Koko Jean & The Tonics featuring Dani Nel.lo. A terrific voice and now in combination with a great Rhythm&Blues saxophone player, that was going to have to bee good!

The second gig in Barcelona this November took us to Soda Acustic. After a terrific Cuban styled concert at the Harlem Jazz Club we were now off to see a full on Jazz concert by the Barcelona based Felix Rossy Quartet.

It’s March and it has been two months since I was with Monica. And as it’s just been my birthday it’s a really good idea to celebrate it a bit longer in Barcelona.

Ending 2015 in Barcelona with Monica was a great way to celebrate the beginning of of a new year and so why not repeat it? Luckily Monica agreed, so for the last few days of 2016 and the first four of 2017 I was in Barcelona again.

I made my way to Barcelona again last week for some festivities. A lot of festivities as a matter of fact as the Gracia neighborhood was all about La Festa Gracia, a week’s worth of activities and concerts all over the neighbourhood.

Monica and I are planning a vacation to Guatemala later this year, but we can’t just let the summer pass without a vacation so we found a great destination in the south of Spain. A new location for us with loads of different architectural buildings and plazas to discover and it’s hot hot hot!

The Leica set has had a CLA-service and returned shortly before my trip to Barcelona. To short to test it before my trip and so the test was done while I was in Barcelona.

Visiting Barcelona in the coldest time of the year… Is that a good idea? Well, it’s still a lot warmer there than in Assen, so I wasn’t too worried. And flights in February were well priced too. And well… excuses aren’t really necessary for visiting my girlfriend again, are they?

Here are a few more images of my visit to Barcelona in December. I shot them on Ilford Delta 400, a bit too grainy for my taste, so I added a little bit of noice-reduction in Lightroom.
Personally I also see a little but of out-of-focus shots here and there, but that’s the reason why the Leica is currently in Will van Manen‘s care for a check-up.
A theme of 2015 has been traveling to Barcelona to visit my girlfriend M. there as often as possible and so it seemed like a great idea to end the year there as well. Having spent Christmas here in the Netherlands with the family, on December 27 I hurried off to Schiphol to visit Barcelona one more time in 2015 and end that wonderful year together with M.
