Two weeks left til my next trip to Barcelona. It's the third year when I go there in this time of year. I think it became a tradition.
I would never forget the first time there. It was purrfect. I realized many things.
Then the sun didn't show up in Bucharest for almost a month. I was going through a lot of changes in my professional life: new project, management changes, last year at the university. There was a lot of pressure on me. I wasn't so excited about this trip but I said, why not. Plus it was the first time, me and Florin traveled together.
While the plane was taking off and going through the grey clouds, the sun was showing up. That was the moment I truly realized: the sun is always there, but there are times when you can't see it through the dark clouds. You should remember this is temporary and the sun will show up on your street.
Radu (a friend of Florin) picked me up and showed me where we'll stay. I had a really nice surprise in my room, a candy was left on my pillow (Santa knows where to find me even if I travel).
On that evening I didn't do anything, I slept like a baby and woke up the next day fresh to see what the city has to offer. I left Florin and Radu sleeping and I went out. The first thing that pop-up was the sunshine. I didn't expect to be so sunny, so I had to buy a pair of sun glasses (Rey Berry).

The next day I took Florin with me and went to Sagrada Familia.
From there we went to Parc Güell.
From Parc Guell we felt adventurous and walked til Barceloneta beach. The day ended with an ice cream on the beach, which gave me throat sore at my way back home. But who went to Barcelona and ate ice-cream on the beach? Me.
