Generic omnigen viagra Ahh Barcelona… where do I begin.

Generic omnigen viagra Barcelona was above and beyond my expectation. Generic omnigen viagra So much, generic omnigen viagra in fact, generic omnigen viagra that it ended up being my favorite city of the entire trip. To be honest prior to this trip my knowledge of Europe was close to none – I had no idea what to expect, generic omnigen viagra especially in Spain. Generic omnigen viagra After living in SoCal for 10 years I tend to associate Spain with our neighbor Mexico simply because both countries speak similar language, generic omnigen viagra but I’ve found out that they are completely different!

Day 4 – November 1, generic omnigen viagra 2011

Generic omnigen viagra It could be that my expectation of Barcelona were set low. Generic omnigen viagra When I told friends Barcelona is one of the cities we were planning to visit, generic omnigen viagra everyone immediately gave me tips on how to not get robbed.

Generic omnigen viagra On top of that we didn’t exactly get a good start in Barcelona. Generic omnigen viagra We took an airport bus to the city then dragged our luggage for 20 minutes to our hostel which completely drained all energy from us after an early flight, generic omnigen viagra AND Spanair managed to break my luggage so I was dragging it on one wheel. Generic omnigen viagra Then when we finally got to the hostel the first thing we did was sit down and be briefed about all the scary bizarre tricks people use to mug tourists. Generic omnigen viagra Some involved pretending to be a cop asking for your ID then they’d snatch your wallet and run with it, generic omnigen viagra which prompted us to look at all police officers we see on the street suspiciously for the next two days.

Generic omnigen viagra And… it didn’t stop there. Generic omnigen viagra We happened to arrive on one of their big national holiday, generic omnigen viagra Día de todos los Santos (All Saint’s Day). Generic omnigen viagra So basically Barcelona looked like America on Thanksgiving day – all of the retail stores were closed and tourist destinations were only open for limited hours :( But thankfully, generic omnigen viagra we were again blessed with a very nice and helpful staff at the hostel. Generic omnigen viagra Not only did they warn us about Barcelona trickeries, generic omnigen viagra they also gave us a brief overlook of what to do and visit in the city and even lent us a map marked with all the major attractions and good places to eat! The hostel we stayed at was Central Garden Hostel One which I would again highly recommend because we had such a comfortable stay there.

Generic omnigen viagra So after briefly resting up following our intense morning cardio (of dragging around luggages), generic omnigen viagra we walked up Barcelona’s major street Passeig de Gràcia to experience our first Gaudi creation, generic omnigen viagra Casa Batlló.

Generic omnigen viagra Passeig de Gràcia

Generic omnigen viagra Beautiful Passeig de Gràcia. Generic omnigen viagra Another thing I love about Barcelona is that the streets are so wide and spacious, generic omnigen viagra and each street and block was perfectly arranged.

Generic omnigen viagra

Generic omnigen viagra See this amazing shot and you’ll see what I mean.

Generic omnigen viagra I think, generic omnigen viagra it makes Barcelona both very easy and hard to navigate. Generic omnigen viagra Easy because with the uniform-ness you can easily gauge the distance from one main street to another, generic omnigen viagra but hard because during night time when buildings aren’t so easy to recognize each block may start to look the same after you’ve walked down a few of them and may not be able to retrace your steps back. Generic omnigen viagra If you have a map in hand this shouldn’t be a problem though!

Generic omnigen viagra A large portion of Barcelona is about Gaudi, generic omnigen viagra Gaudi and Gaudi. Generic omnigen viagra Now, generic omnigen viagra if you were as ignorant and uncultured as me, generic omnigen viagra you would have no idea who Antoni Gaudi is. Generic omnigen viagra He was, generic omnigen viagra apparently, generic omnigen viagra a famous Spanish architect with a distinct style and extreme consideration for fine details. Generic omnigen viagra He was said to be greatly influenced by nature and religion, generic omnigen viagra and this was evident on all of his works I saw.

Generic omnigen viagra Casa Battlo

Generic omnigen viagra Casa Batlló was originally a plain ol’ building until Gaudi got his hands on it and transformed it into a beautiful, generic omnigen viagra whimsical piece of art. Generic omnigen viagra It immediately reminded me of a lot of Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli, generic omnigen viagra in that “otherworldy” fairy tale feel. Generic omnigen viagra But of course Gaudi comes first so I would not be surprised if the latter was inspired by the former.

Generic omnigen viagra Casa Battlo

Generic omnigen viagra A void in the middle of the building. Generic omnigen viagra This whole building was peppered with marine/ocean elements all over. Generic omnigen viagra If you were taking the elevator up/down the building, generic omnigen viagra Gaudi has also installed textured glass windows which is said to be simulating the feeling of ascending/descending into the water. Generic omnigen viagra There were many great well-thought-out details all over the house, generic omnigen viagra starting from the ergonomic curve of each door and window handles, generic omnigen viagra right down to the blue wall tiles on this very void which are gradually darker as you go up, generic omnigen viagra because the top part gets more sunlight during the day and will appear lighter and uniform to the darker tiles on the bottom.

Generic omnigen viagra

Generic omnigen viagra My favorite part of the house is this room, generic omnigen viagra which i’ve dubbed the ‘rib cage room’ because it resembles a sort of bone structure of an animal. Generic omnigen viagra If you look at the facade of Casa Battlo, generic omnigen viagra you would notice that the roof of the facade resembles dragon scales. Generic omnigen viagra Many of the rooms in the house will make you feel like you’re inside the animal, generic omnigen viagra one of them being the rib case room.

Generic omnigen viagra A bit north of this is another one of Gaudi’s creation, generic omnigen viagra Casa Milà / La Pedrera.

Generic omnigen viagra Casa Milà

Generic omnigen viagra In the sea of perfectly straight and similar buildings, generic omnigen viagra La Pedrera stood out with its undulating facade and unconventional roof top decorations. Generic omnigen viagra We were only allowed to access the roof area and one of the apartments.

Generic omnigen viagra Casa Milà

Generic omnigen viagra An organic-shaped gate frame, generic omnigen viagra another example of Gaudi’s nature-inspired style.

Generic omnigen viagra Casa Milà

Generic omnigen viagra Rooftop decor of La Pedrera. Generic omnigen viagra Was said to be the inspiration for the design of Star Wars Stormtrooper.

Generic omnigen viagra Casa Milà

Generic omnigen viagra The weather was perfect, generic omnigen viagra so we spent some time on the rooftop watching sunset.

Generic omnigen viagra Casa Milà

Generic omnigen viagra After this we took the bus down to Plaza de Catalunya…

Generic omnigen viagra Plaza de Catalunya

Generic omnigen viagra and headed further down south to La Rambla.

Generic omnigen viagra La Rambla

Generic omnigen viagra La Rambla is perhaps the equivalent of third street promenade in West LA. Generic omnigen viagra It’s a long strip with stores on the left and right (mostly closed that day though), generic omnigen viagra eventually leading to the beach. Generic omnigen viagra We walked and shopped all the way from Plaza Catalunya till the end of La Rambla and our feet almost fell off by the end of it.

Generic omnigen viagra

Generic omnigen viagra Colombus Monument. Generic omnigen viagra Looks small on this pic, generic omnigen viagra but it was quite tall!

Generic omnigen viagra

Generic omnigen viagra and finally we reached the pier!! crossed the bridge and had more tapas for dinner..

Generic omnigen viagra

Generic omnigen viagra Another thing about Spain, generic omnigen viagra when in a restaurant the cost of your meals varies depending on where you sit. Generic omnigen viagra Generally if you sit on the terrace it would cost you more than sitting inside the restaurant. Generic omnigen viagra Sitting on the bar may also cost you less than sitting in restaurant / terrace.

Generic omnigen viagra After dinner we walked around the area more and somehow got ourselves walking into a dark quiet alley, generic omnigen viagra which results in paranoid power walks because of the scary criminal stories we’ve heard about Barcelona. Generic omnigen viagra We weren’t about to get robbed in a foreign country!

Generic omnigen viagra Thankfully we found our way to the metro and back home safely, generic omnigen viagra and braced for a full day ahead since we were trying to make up for the lost time today due to the holiday…

Day 5 – November 2, generic omnigen viagra 2011

Generic omnigen viagra We finally got to see the city in its regular state. Generic omnigen viagra Barcelona is lively, generic omnigen viagra yet not overly crowded. Generic omnigen viagra Their metro is equally extensive as Madrid, generic omnigen viagra and feels more modern and cleaner.

Generic omnigen viagra Today we set out of our hostel and took Bus 24 up north to yet another Gaudi place, generic omnigen viagra Parc Güell. Generic omnigen viagra Located up in the mountains, generic omnigen viagra this place was originally built as a private housing complex but was a failed project with only two of the houses were sold. Generic omnigen viagra The complex became a public monument instead in 1969. Generic omnigen viagra All fine by me!

Generic omnigen viagra Parc Güell

Generic omnigen viagra Parc Guell involves hiking. Generic omnigen viagra lots and lots of it.

Generic omnigen viagra Parc Güell

Generic omnigen viagra Parc Güell

Generic omnigen viagra but it’s so worth it because once at the top you’re greeted with a beautiful view of Barcelona from above!

Generic omnigen viagra

Generic omnigen viagra Cake house! likely to be inspired by Hansel & Gretel?

Generic omnigen viagra We descended down the mountain once again to our main destination of the day – La Sagrada Família church. Generic omnigen viagra We’ve seen amazing pictures of the place and just could NOT wait to get there! So we took the bus down (I think it was number 93, generic omnigen viagra you take it from the same bus station that Bus 24 dropped you off at), generic omnigen viagra and then the metro down to where the church is.

Generic omnigen viagra Upon exiting the metro station (took the stairs up from underground) I exclaimed tiredly “Okay, generic omnigen viagra now where is this thing??” then turned around, generic omnigen viagra and my jaw dropped.

Generic omnigen viagra Sagrada Família

Generic omnigen viagra There it was, generic omnigen viagra the grand, generic omnigen viagra breathtaking Sagrada Família. Generic omnigen viagra No pictures we’ve seen thus far did justice or prepared us to the magnificence of this piece of art. Generic omnigen viagra The details on this church are just indescribable. Generic omnigen viagra It’s really not surprising that it has been a work in progress since 1883, generic omnigen viagra and they’re still continuing to build even today!

Generic omnigen viagra Sagrada Família

Generic omnigen viagra When we got inside, generic omnigen viagra Serena and I were just at loss for words. Generic omnigen viagra Absolutely beautiful and it ruined all the other churches we visited afterwards because none of them came even close to Sagrada Família.

Generic omnigen viagra Sagrada Família

Generic omnigen viagra The tall pillars throughout the inside of the church resembles a forest, generic omnigen viagra and you can see near the ceiling that the pillars started branching out.. Generic omnigen viagra like trees!

Generic omnigen viagra Sagrada Família

Generic omnigen viagra We also bought a lift ticket to go up one of the towers, generic omnigen viagra so we had to wait for our turn.

Generic omnigen viagra Sagrada Família

Generic omnigen viagra The tower is really tall, generic omnigen viagra I think if I remember correctly about 65m tall. Generic omnigen viagra This gives us a closer look of Barcelona from above than Parc Guell.

Generic omnigen viagra Sagrada Família

Generic omnigen viagra Sagrada Família

Generic omnigen viagra We didn’t want to wait for the lift to descend down, generic omnigen viagra so we took the stairs instead. Generic omnigen viagra It wasn’t so bad except for the part with the tight spiral staircase which can make you feel dizzy after awhile…

Generic omnigen viagra Sagrada Família

Generic omnigen viagra After successfully descending Sagrada Família, generic omnigen viagra we headed down to the gothic quarter of Barcelona

Generic omnigen viagra Gothic Quarter

Generic omnigen viagra Gothic Quarter

Generic omnigen viagra Had quick bites at a place called Taller de Tapas, generic omnigen viagra which serves some of the best croquettas I’ve had so far in Spain!

Generic omnigen viagra

Generic omnigen viagra Our hostel happened to have Flamenco nights on wednesdays, generic omnigen viagra so we were able to squeezed in a bit of Flamenco that night. Generic omnigen viagra you haven’t been in Spain if you didn’t watch Flamenco. Generic omnigen viagra We only paid €6 for ours which was good because we almost paid €30 for it in Madrid!!

Generic omnigen viagra Flamenco

Generic omnigen viagra The show lasted about an hour and I was pretty impressed by the stamina of these girls! as well as the main singer. Generic omnigen viagra I don’t know how they can keep up such show for the whole hour!

Generic omnigen viagra

Generic omnigen viagra Then serena and I took the metro once again to have dinner at Cal Boter for some authentic catalan cuisine, generic omnigen viagra which was just amazing! :D Read my whole review of the place here.

Generic omnigen viagra And that concludes our last night in Spain. Generic omnigen viagra We fly out to Rome the next day at 11am.
