Back in May, Matt and I took a trip with our friends, the F1 fanatics (more commonly known as Damon and Jo), to Barcelona to go to the Barcelona Grand Prix. Being an Indianapolis 500 fan myself, I was quite excited to attend a live racing event. Include a trip to a city I’ve never seen and you’ve got the full package! However, I think this tale is best told visually…
The beautiful Gaudi park. That guy must have been a nut – his architecture is unbelievable!
An ugly, cloudy day, but still a brilliant view of the city and the sea.
Me and my beau in the Gaudi park, rain jackets in tow!
The famous lizard – we actually thought it was going to be much, much larger than this. Slight disappointment.
The Sagrada Família, the cathedral in Barcelona. Unfortunately, it is still heavily under construction, so much of it was covered. Really take a second and look at the details. Amazing.
A look at La Rambla, the famous tree-lined pedestrian mall, and the cite of our first day of escapades!
Escapades proven – look at the size of those!!! And meet Jo, one half of the F1 fanatics.
Drivers, start your engines! I had the best time at my very first F1 race.
Meet Damon, the other half of the F1 fanatics. And I’m wearing my new Nico Rosberg shirt – officially my favorite driver – cause he’s cute!
This guy was a legend. Probably Kimi Räikkönen’s biggest fan – he stood up and waved his flag EVERY SINGLE TIME Kimi came around.
And there you have it! Barcelona in a nutshell. An absolutely beautiful city (despite our unfortunate weather) and a great place to watch your very first F1 race live! Unfortunately, my purse was stolen the first day (tourists be warned – Barcelona is notorious for its theft), but that’s another story for another time…not really – I’d rather forget that part. 😉
