Barcelona is one of my favourite cities in the world.
Forget the latest about the horrid influx of tourists and how the locals are seeking balance in their neighbourhoods after feeling the squeeze from Airbnb and real estate speculators. This city is still a vibrant and wonderfully creative place filled with amazing people of all types. Eating and drinking here is superlative and the city oozes cool factor with just enough grit pretty much everywhere you go.
Simply put, the sights, smells and sounds of Barcelona have kept me coming back here over and over again since 2008 for rest, invigoration and/or inspiration. Usually some form of all of these things.
Below are some photos I have taken over the years. Please enjoy.
