Barcelona, day five

Rob, who has been here with us shooting for Booker Travels, left today. We had a few hours to spend with him and decided to see some more of Gaudi’s architectural work. Near our house, in the Gràcia neighborhood, Casa Vicens is a private residence. We almost missed it since the house sits on a quiet block and there were no tourists around.

The Casa Vicens was a little different from Gaudi’s other work that I saw because its flat structure blended in more to the other buildings around. We then headed to La Sagrada Familia, which I was so much looking forward to seeing. Sadly it was not the site I expected. The place was way over crowded with tourists. Tour buses were lined up one after the other, blocking the view of the church and distracting one to have a real feel for the place. You also had to stand on a line that went around the corner to get tickets to go in. We decided to miss that and get out the place.

The afternoon was spent taking it easy in Gràcia, skateboarding around the neighborhood and playing with our GoPro camera.
