Thinking of Barcelona Today


Thinking of Barcelona! I have just visited the city and sat eating and drinking on the Ramblas. Watching all the people walking by. 

Barcelona is a vibrant and lively city but also laid back. This was my second visit to
Barcelona. I love this city, the museums, the architecture, 
the food, the walks and the fun vibes. 

What happened this week is very sad to me and my prayers go out to the people 
of Barcelona and the people visiting this great city. I don't understand the people who
carry out these attacks and never will.

It's about the food, Barcelona


Barcelona has some of the best food I have ever had. And I get around and just love the food in this city. Tapas are so much fun and a good way of trying all the flavors of the city. With the help of google, Rick Steves book on Barcelona, and walking by places we thought looked good, we were able to find great places to eat. It was fun going to tapas bars and then walking to another spot for dinner.

We all loved eating all kinds Tapas, Octopus, Padron Peppers, Gazpacho, Fish, Ham, and more. I do recommend visiting the many food markets in the city such as Mercado de Santa Caterina. The El Mercat de la Boqueria is the most famous market. It can be very crowded so go early or an off time. At these markets, you can see what the city has to offer. You can pick up a snack too.

Revere Beach is transformed once a year, Sand Sculptures



For the past few years, my husband and I have gone to the International Sand Sculpting Festival on Revere Beach just north of Boston. It is a great event, and the artful sculptures captivate. The participants are from the United States and all over the world. It is worth the trip and right near an MBTA blueline train station. I look forward to this event every year. We lucked out that the weather was beautiful to stroll the beach.
