Barcelona – July 2017

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.

A vacation in Basque Country

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.

A last trip to Barcelona in 2015

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.

Barcelona January 2015

In January I visited that beautiful city of Barcelona again, escaping the cold wintery weather of the Netherlands. Only for a few days this time, but the city is an incredible place that still has many secrets to reveal.
