Barcelona, You Had My Heart Starting with Late Mornings & Romesco

I can't resist taking a portrait with a backdrop like this!

When my husband was offered a chance to teach a two-day workshop at Bau Design College of Barcelona for Typo Week 2013, we knew that we had to go! Fortunately for us, my sister graciously offered to take care of our two children for a week. We set sails for Copenhagen before heading off for five days in Barcelona.

Once he finished teaching, we had a relaxing few days on our second honeymoon (Ok, it's our third since we had gone to Barcelona alone a couple of years prior. Ok, wait, maybe it's our fourth since we did go to Europe for a few weeks before the kids were born, but who is counting?)

We loved the food, soft schedules, relaxed attitude, social life, and walkability of Barcelona (and what to speak of all our friends there!) and fantasized about spending a month or two there with the entire family some day. A girl can dream, right?

I'll be posting a few more Barcelona posts in the next week. In the meantime, take a look at some of the sights and tastes I captured with my trusty Nikon.

Bakeries like these grace almost every corner in the Gothic Quarter. And no, nothing is vegan!

Ken lecturing to a packed house at Bau.

Pan con Tomate at a dinner with friends. So easy and so good! Recipe here.

Escalivada with the world's best romesco sauce.

Beautiful church in the Gothic Quarter that we just happened to wander into.

Chufa Horchata!

Clever street art.

Pigeons on the edge of our hotel's rooftop endless pool (and yes, yes, yes, I would recommend the Central Grand!) .
