You remember that my sister was gone to Europe since December 2011 right?
Well she went through some hard times while she was down there and that is why my mother, my brother and I decided to go see her!
I always say that everything happens for a reason ( I really just say that so I don’t get mad at the situation) but this time, it was really true!
Elyssa (my sister) got some really bad news back in May, while she was in Italy. On the exact same day, my mother received a “one day deal” for a round trip flight from our city to Barcelona and back. The tickets were 500$, a CRAZY good deal! What’s even crazier is that my sister was going to be in Spain during that week! My mom called me, all excited, saying that we should just buy the tickets and go!
And as crazy as we are, we did buy the tickets! The last 3 tickets!!! (Karl had to work)
How crazy is that!?
So off to Barcelona we went to see my baby sister (I missed her so much!)
When we got to the Barcelona Airport, Ely was waiting for us at the door!
I ran and jumped on her, crying like a baby! (yes, I am very emotional) lol
Needless to say, we had a wonderful trip!
Here are a few pictures I took! Barcelona is truly a beautiful city!
I love the architecture!!!
God… I really do look like i’m sixteen!!! I guess I will look 40 when I’m 50…right?
Love the old brick!
One of Gaudi’s Masterpiece
Inside the Sagrada Familia…One of the most incredible building I have seen so far!
Look at the colors!
Me at the Castell de Montjuïc, an amazing Park in the city of Barcelona! We are at the top of the Mountain at this point.
You can see the sea….it’s so serene and beautiful!
My cute sister!
Don’t know what I was looking at but it seems pretty intense!
Life is good!!!
When you go to Barcelona, you have to eat Tapas and Paella! I will be making some soon so you can have a taste of Spain at home!
