Taken at: Casa Milà, Barcelona, Spain, 2015. I’ve been looking back at photo’s from my recent summer vacation (in an attempt to escape the current cold winter reality) and stumbled across this one taken in Barcelona.

I got this guide last weekend and went through it this morning over coffee and realised how fortunate I have been, as I have gone to a few of these spots on shoots! So my last week wont be a mad rush of trying to fit every last sight in. This walk can be pretty busy on the weekends but not something that should deter you. I didn’t stick exactly to the lonely planet walk. I wondered off track into random side streets (which I didn’t highlight). This is something I do often, in every city I visit, and 100% recommend it if you have time. The red line is the basic route I kept coming back onto. All the stores along this street are…
