Love to travel - Viva Barcelona

I don't know why but I had to think of Barcelona yesterday. This happens from time to time and this can bring me to tears sometimes.
Barcelona is still my favourite city and sometimes I get the feeling I have to go there again soon.
When I hear the song "Barcelona" of Freddie Mercury it gives me goose bumps. He and Montserrat Caballé are singing the song of the Olympic Games 1992 in Barcelona.
Yesterday an (annoying by the way) guy behind me was talking about Barcelona when we had to wait in front of a pub. Then the remembrance hit me like a lightning.
I had such a good time there, when I have been there to learn Spanish. I spent altogether about 7 weeks there and I loved it so much. I loved the air, the people, the culture, the sun, the sea, the language, everything.
If you are willing to have a good time, meet people and learn Spanish (or at least Catalan) you should take the occasion and go there.
Visit the famous sites of Gaudi like Park Güell, Casa Milà and Sagrada Familia for some things.
Go to the Ramblas to see vibrating life and walk down to the harbour where Christopher Columbus watches over the city.
See the famous museums of Picasso and Joan Miro.
And never never forget to go to the Barri Gòtic the most beautiful part of the town. And old part where you can still breath history besides all the new and fast changing modern architecture.
Viva Barcelona!!
