I recently spent a week in Barcelona. It was my first time in Spain.
During the commute "home" from work to my small rented flat one afternoon, I stopped at a local market to buy a bag of cherries and a large bottle of water. I smiled at strangers along the way to try my best to make up for my linguistic shortcomings. Upon arrival at the apartment, I settled into a chair on the tiny balcony to eat cherries and watch life unfold around and beneath me.
One of many moments I'll treasure from this adventure. Here are a few others!
