Barcelona Part II
Ah, here now, the second set of pictures from my time in Barcelona. It went by so quickly. Which makes me sad, because I'm also going to Dublin for a week and it's going to go by so quickly as well. Now that I have a job, I'm not going to be able to travel like this.
Just like you saw in last week's post, I took many pictures (iphone pictures, as you can tell) of buildings and food (it's going to be great editing all of them...) I did so much walking on that trip. Unfortunately my feet were really sore by the end, and when I got back, I had to work and be on my feet all day. So it's been a hard two weeks for my feet!
The weather in Barcelona was lovely. My cousin loaned me her jean jacket, and I forgot it was winter. I'm not complaining about Paris either. Paris has been pretty nice as well. We had a few days during fashion week when we didn't even need a coat. It was great for photoshoots with Audrey. Other than that, it's been very sunny at the least.
I went to la Cerveceria Catalana twice while I was there. Once with a couple friends, and once on my own in the middle of the afternoon. I just sat at the bar and got half an order of patatas bravas, half an order of pimientos de padron, and something delicious with octopus. Lots of people were waiting for tables, sitting near me at the bar, drinking beer. One guy asked why I was eating alone. "Um, because I am alone?". This got me thinking. I am not the biggest fan of traveling by myself. I get very anxious if I don't feel somewhat familiar with everything, and I don't like going into restaurants or cafes I've never been to on my own. But I've been to Barcelona before, I've been to La Cerveceria Catalana plenty, so I had no problem. The same thing happens when I go to Dublin and spend hours at the Fumbally. It's something I'd like to work on. I want to be able to travel and enjoy life and enjoy cities and food and events on my own. I don't want to miss out on anything out of fear.
