Hola! Today I began my journey travelling across to a new continent...Europe! I am so excited to experience a whole different atmosphere here in Spain! For many years now I have wanted to go to Spain, but I was not able to...but to be positive I am finally here! As I am of Filipino and Spanish decent, I want to learn about my families history, and where I come from! I am also an FC Barcelona fan, so it will be awesome to witness the big stadium and see the crowds of people wandering the streets of Barcelona, which will be where I am staying for the next couple of days!
While looking up the best way to view Barcelona, I read that walking around is the best way to adventure out and reach new heights! So as I begin to walk around I notice the beautiful modern architecture..
Here I end up infront of the most beautiful piece of art that I have ever seen in my life...Sagrada Família ! As a Catholic i feel like it is necessary to visit the most historic churches that reveal the history of where we all come from. This place is so pretty I have no words to explain my thoughts about it! There is just so much detain that is put into this Cathedral.
One I exited the church I wanted to see more of the culture through my favourite thing of all time...FOOD! I haven't really discussed what I've been eating on this trip mainly because I usually just grab a snack on the go! But this time i really wanted to experience their culture through the food that they eat. So nearby I decided to eat at a restaurant called La Paradeta Sagrada Familia! My favourite type of food is Seafood, and this restaurant just happens to be known for the seafood, I am so excited. Everything is made fresh, and i am ready to dig in!
Here is a few pictures I took while eating here:
Today I will be visiting the Barcelona zoo! On this trip so far i havent really gone anywhere like this so i am excited to see the different animals that are here at the zoo! Although i am against the idea of keeping animals in an enclosed area, I want to take the time to see the different wildlife that is showcased in Barcelona! Here are some pictures:
Apparently this zoo was known for the albino gorilla where there was only one but it had died in 2003. This is a cool fact because in these zoos they show very rare species of animals that you wouldn't see on a day to day basis.
Now that I have got a taste of the Spanish culture. I will be making my way east of the continent of Europe to visit a very interesting place that has been on my bucketlist as one of the places to visit. Hope you're enjoying these blogs! And if you ever get to go to these places that I have visited hope you take the same routes as me because this adventures are so fun! See you soon!
