A trip to Barcelona wouldn’t be complete without a stroll down Las Ramblas. Feast your eyes on the incredible street performers and all the energy and action in this area. Yours truly was caught off guard by one of the street performers who looked so much like a statue I walked right by, until of course he jumped out and scared me.  That taught me to be more aware of my surroundings. Of note: This is a tourist area so be sure to be aware of your surroundings to avoid becoming a pickpocket victim.

“That’s so gaudi!” Ever wonder where that phrase came from? Well, here’s your opportunity. Witnessing Gaudi’s architecture is an absolute must!

If you’re a fan of the Olympics you probably already knew Barcelona was home to the 1992 Summer Olympics. The site is somewhat far from the Las Ramblas area but worth it if you’re a fan (like I am).
