Experiencing Barcelona on my own was exciting, stimulating, reflective and empowering. My first time in Europe, I chose Spain because Barcelona looked enchanting and encompassed European architecture as well as the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea. It was everything I thought it would be, and so much more. The architecture was exquisitely ancient, elaborate and conjured my mind to wander about its origins. The people were fashionably chic, and moved around town using the subways like New Yorkers. I saw very few people of color, although we are the global majority, in Barcelona, we are the minority.  The people were pleasant,  however there might have been a few stares.
I will follow up with more experiences about the food and the fashions of Barcelona; so please check back for more pics. For now, take in these images so you can experience some of Barcelona.
