Hello, friends! If you have been seen any of my Instagram posts over the weekend then you may know that I’ve been lucky enough to spend the past two days exploring Barcelona. I’m writing this post looking out over the glimmering golden lights of Barcelona from my hotel window after a magical 48 hours taking in the inspiring Gaudi architecture and enjoying divine Spanish cuisine in colourful restaurants situated in charming little squares. I have so many stories and inspiring pictures to share with you (I managed to take over 800 pictures on day one alone!) but for now I’ll leave you with a taster of the stunning view across the city that I took earlier today while exploring Park Güell. I hope you have a great week!

    I have always loved Northern Spain, my parents lived about 40mins north of Barcelona for 3 years and it is such a warm, rich area in its character, history, creativity and optimism. Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend
