Right across the street from our hotel was this Gaudi masterpiece:
I am completely enchanted with Gaudi’s works. They are the perfect mix of craziness and brilliance, resulting in pure magic. He is definitely a person I would have loved to have shared a bottle of champagne (or two) with.
Since the weather was looking ominous, we decided to spend the morning shopping along Paseo de Gracia in case it started to rain. I had mentioned that I have a thing for H&M, well I also happen to have a thing for Zara. And what could be better than shopping in Zara in its home country (especially when the Euro had dropped significantly in its worth)?
As we emerged from Zara the sky opened up and we were instantly drenched. We quickly rushed back to our hotel, where we waited out the storm with some coffee. Once the sun came out, we decided to take advantage of our rooftop pool. We needed to brush up on our tans, since in two days we would be in Ibiza!
After our little siesta in the sun, we set off for Las Ramblas. . .
