I did the whole tourist thing and visited the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, one of the most visited places in Spain. The line up to get in was easily the longest of any venue I encountered during my trip in Spain. The first day I attempted to visit, I was turned away at 10am due to all time slot tickets being sold out until 3pm. Definitely buy tickets online before heading there to avoid the insane line ups, you'll get to enter through the handy "back door" without much waiting. Once in, I thought it was well worth the wait. What a marvellous bastion of beauty and design. This basilica has been under construction for the last 132 years, and isn't slated for completion until at least 2026 (although that's probably an optimistic guesstimate). Much of the main nave seemed to be completed and featured towering stained-glass windows that let in gently coloured sunlight that danced over the soaring branched pillars holding up the richly decorated ceiling. The atmosphere is enchanting and meditative.

Here I am standing in awe of the work of architect Antonio Gaudi, who dedicated much of his life to working on the Sagrada Familia. However, Gaudi knew he wouldn't live to see the completion of this church so he left many plans and notes for future generations to complete his work, so they may make their mark.

An elderly lady who entered behind me fell to her knees and cried, possibly having been so deeply moved by the majesty of her surroundings. I'm not religious at all but I could appreciate the kind of innovation and creativity that went into this.

Unrepentant camwhore here, checking in. Found a cool maze garden in the Parc Del Laberint in Barcelona, Spain. Took me about 15-20 mins to get through it because I walk slow and had to be careful not to step on the little kids running between the hedges. Makes me wish I was a kid again, how awesome would it be to play tag or hide and seek in here?!

Hola amigos! My travels have brought me to lunch at the Plaza Mayor, Madrid, Spain. I like that Spain has lots of set menus comprised of first and second courses, plus dessert, bread and a drink for one price, usually anywhere from €11-€20. Here I chose a chicken and seafood paella paired with rose wine. Paella is a Spanish rice dish, usually cooked with seafood, and it's one of my favourite foods. The weather is beautiful and HOT and the architecture is gorgeous. However I have to be careful not to get too lost in my thoughts around here as I've already been targeted by a wicked pickpocket who tried to stick his hairy hand in my purse. It was most alarming, and a sad wakeup call for me to put up my guard and be wary of who I trust. The pickpocket didn't even look fishy, he was a Spanish man with a nicely dressed "girlfriend" who followed me all the way to my hotel, silly me I though it was purely coincidence we were going the same direction. Nothing came of it except an increase in blood pressure so not to worry!

An interesting thing that I don't have back home, the umbrellas covering the dining areas all spray out mists of water over the hot diners. Very cool!

Please, whatever powers that may be, I want a Deadpool movie exactly like this with Ryan Reynolds and his sarcastic mouthy wit. You can even make Blake Lively be the female alternate universe Deadpool, she's already blonde anyways though less witty. Please please please please please.

Lady's first Medieval Times feast! Medieval Times is a dinner and show thing where you're treated like a lady or lord while knights joust on horses for your entertainment and wenches serve you an utensil-less chicken dinner. I've never been to one of these before, I have to say it's a lot less cheesy than I expected! Sadly my yellow knight lost in the tournament. Dammit yellow knight, I even bought a dinky $2 flag to wave you on and this is how you repay me?!

A++ would recommend. Next time I might even dress up in King's Landing fashion!

Today I went to the San Miguel market in Madrid to sample their local cooking. The market is filled with many stalls with delicious, fresh goodies and the place fills up fast. You can get many different dishes for a couple of Euros each and put together your own picnic meal. Here I tried my first grilled razor clams, called navajas, in Spanish. They grilled them up fresh, right before my eyes, with some water and herbed olive oil. It's chewy and delicious, but some of them had a little bit of sand in it. There was also the option of eating some sort of grilled barnacles dish but I wasn't feeling quite that level of adventurous yet, heh.

Hello friends! Today I took a high speed train, the Renfre, about a half hour north of Madrid to visit the city of Segovia. Segovia is famous for its ancient Roman aqueducts, and both the city and the aqueducts have been declared UNESCO world heritage sites. Pictured here is the ancient wall that runs around the perimeter of the city, and off in the distance, you can see the tower of the famous Segovia Cathedral. The atmosphere here is calm and safe, and walking on the uneven cobblestone roads reminds you of their ancient origins. It rained today, which made this place a cool, refreshing getaway from the hustle of hot and busy Madrid.

Found some novel products wandering down the popular shopping street "La Rambla" in Barcelona, Spain. Do you think Canadian customs will let me bring these home?

Actually, right next to these were seeds for cannabis and rainbow roses as well as various other plants that look like genitalia. Very interesting.

Hola amigos! I'm in Barcelona where I found a little cafe that had a beautiful mural wall filled with women with moustaches! I think I blend in well with the locals, no?
