We’ve just come back from a wonderful trip to the Catalonian city of Barcelona where we were lucky enough to bag  a hotel right in the middle of the Gothic Quarter.

Barcelona must be one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Art and design and colour are everywhere. From the amazing architecture of Antoni Gaudi for which the city is most famous to this quirky bench in a side street.

I’ve come back with enough photos on both camera memory cards and iPhone to keep me happily playing around with them for months. In fact, right now I’m a bit overwhelmed by the sheer number of images that I haven’t got beyond looking at them and mentally retracing my steps through the city. We’re already planning a return visit.

I think this bench is sufficiently oddball for Cee’s Challenge this week. What do you think?

Love the wellies. I loved Barcelona and think Gaudi and all he did is totally stunning.

Aha, there you have been hiding. I had already missed you and your photos. Good to hear that you had a great time in my favourite city (I am a wee bit jealous of course) and cannot wait to see more pictures. Do you remember whereabouts this one was taken?

    Hi Marga, My favourite city too. Have booked week at same hotel in Carrer Avinyo for 2017. This pic was taken on iPhone 5 minutes away from Parliament building but can’t be more exact than that.
