Barcelona

It’s been a long time since I had a holiday abroad so I was really looking forward to spending a few days in Barcelona. Whilst I have been to Spain before, I’ve not been for a very long time and never to Barcelona.

I’m not usually so fond of city life, but must admit Barcelona was quite stunning. The architecture in particular is worth visiting.

There are also quite a few museums to visit. With limited time I had to prioritise and the Picasso museum was not to be missed. I must admit I am not a great fan of his more modern, impressionist/abstract work, but the more traditional portraits and landscapes he did when young were excellent.

The photo above was taken within the Picasso museum. The building itself was a work of art!

These are just a small selection of the photos I took in Barcelona. I will post more in the days or weeks to come.

Take care!

Costa Rica

After my recent trip to India I wasn’t expecting to be doing any more travelling for a while, but then the chance to go to Costa Rica came up. Having never been there either, I just had to say yes!

And so it was that I found myself almost exactly the opposite side of the Earth to Bangalore, in San Jose.

Temperatures were much more comfortable at around 25C during the day. One thing that surprised me was that it wasn’t all pure blue skies the whole time. In fact much of the time it looked more like the photo above.

But not all the time as this photo across the rooftops shows.

Sadly my trip was very brief, just a few days, and not a lot of free time to explore so I definitely have to go back again some time!

Anyway, until the next time, take care!
