The last stop on our transatlantic cruise was the beautiful city of Barcelona. We arrived early in the morning and made our way to a local hotel where we stayed two days. We basically just wondered the city. We took long walks and ate tapas at small cafes. We didn’t even see some of the more famous sites. Which is okay by us. Exploring, or even getting lost, in a new city at our own place appeals to Todd and I much more than planned stops with hoards of other tourists.
Todd and I both felt that Barcelona is a city that we will visit in the future again. We loved the sites and the feel of the city. Also, the locals were very nice and accommodating. They even tolerated what little Spanish I had managed to learn before the trip.
On another note, I have created a Cafe Press site where you can buy merchandise displaying my pictures. I have created a calendar of some of my favorite shots form this year. In the future, I will also create other products like mugs, journals and even shower curtains. In the meantime, if you would like a specialized calendar, please let me know and I will be happy to use your twelve favorite photos. Also, any product you see on the Cafe Press site can be specialized with one of my pictures.
To get a better view or to buy prints, click on the photo. To see more of my photos, visit my galleries.
Shower curtains?! I don’t know why but that cracks me up. Haha. That’s so awesome! Can’t wait to see what you have to offer!
I know, I was a bit overwhelmed when sitting up the store. I added all these products but it takes some time…. so I just went with the Calendar. There are also things such as bed sheets, plates, glasses. So, I reckon you could have a theme in a room. I have so many pictures and I’m not sure which ones folks like the best so I don’t really know which ones to pick at this point.
Haha, a large calendar is a good thing to start out with though!
Wow, bedsheets are intense! Haha!
That is tough. Might I suggest maybe making a post where people link to their favorite picture(s) you took? Or maybe have a few posts over time where you present us with 20 or so and ask us to choose 5 at a time. Maybe that’ll help narrow down your search a little 🙂
That sky is an awesome blue Seth!
Thanks. I was happy it was a great clear day. Although, sometimes I like a bit of clouds in the sky.
You’ve captured Barcelona’s beauty well.
Thanks Marion. I am glad you liked the pictures. I like your pig picture on your blog. http://drieskewrites.wordpress.com/2012/11/04/wonderful/ How do you say “pig” in Dutch?
Hehehe, ‘pig’ is ‘varken’ in Dutch, Seth 🙂
Varken. cool. I have a dutch brother you know. He was an exchange student who lived with my family for a year. I visited him in Putten, Holland back in the 90’s. I need to go back to Holland.
You definitely need to go back then. But don’t call him ‘varken’ eh! 😉
Yes that wouldn’t be good. 😜 We stay in touch on Facebook.
Absolutely beautiful, makes me want to re-think my vacation plans for February!!
Thanks for the like! Where are you planning on going?
Hawaii was sounding warm and romantic for our 10 year anniversary but after seeing your photos, now it sorta sounds boring!
I’ve only been once but Hawaii is amazing too!
I love Barcelona – so much energy and color
Yes it is a great city. Thanks.
Oh wow, having a balcony like the one on the first picture is my dream =)
Yeah, that would be a wonderful way to live.
I love Barcelona! My favourite photo is the first one, with all the shuttered windows.
Your photos of Barcelona made me ‘drool’ ! I would love to see Barcelona soon 🙂
Thanks. Glad I made you drool.
you’re good at it.. you always do 🙂
Beautiful! The sky is a beautiful blue. I agree that clouds are sometimes nice, but a clear day lets the colors of Barcelona shine.
I hope you don’t mind if I leave a link to my photos of Seville:
I am trying to improve my photography skills, so I’ll be visiting your site frequently. Thank you for sharing your photos.
So pumped to go there now. Thanks.
Thanks. Ill be happy to tag along with you. 😜
Ahh i squealed a little bit in excitement reading this! So happy you went with the calendar idea!
It was all your idea. You can design one if you want. 😊
Gorgeous photos! And I’m jealous. Barcelona is #1 on my list of places I want to see before I die. 🙂
You’ll get there! 🙂 Thanks
Beautiful photos, quite absorbing.
Wonderful beauty in the photos. Great travel pics of the sights.
Thanks. I have plenty more! I hope I don’t bore.
I enjoy personally just about all that you put out there for your viewers. Not boring, ever.
Glad to hear it.
Definitely one of those places I have to get to one day. That’s a beautiful collection you’ve shared with us.

great shots Seth
Thanks David. Wonderful blog you have!
That’s exactly why I wanted to travel to Barcelona for years now. And still haven’t managed – grrrr.
Lovely pictures. My favorite one is the one with he piece of palm tree against the street lamp in the background. Strange?
Thanks. That one I like a lot too so if you are strange then I am strange too 🙂 . Barcelona is a wonderful city.
Hey, thanks for liking my pictures when I put them up two seconds ago! Barcelona was the first place I ever went without my parents. A while ago now. Love travel!
Me too. Traveling is awesome.
Haha, I’d like a calendar.. 😀 But I won’t like explaining to my parents why I would want to buy one from overseas… 😛
By the way, great pictures. 🙂 (I’m sorry, I’m not in a commenting mood right now D: )
Thanks for your compliments. It’s fine about the calendar. I wouldn’t want to get you in trouble! 🙂
Hahaha.. No problem ^_^
I’m glad you liked Barcelona! It’s a wonderful city, with lots of charm, and soaked in culture. 🙂
Yes and we will be going back one day.
Things are looking up, I could say.
Thank you so much. Glad you enjoy them.
Interesting and such variety. Enjoyed.
Thanks again! 🙂
As usual, I loved the photos!
Gorgeous! I bet the food was divine!
Of course. Tapas everywhere.
I love Barcelona… especially the Barri Gotic. Beautiful pictures!
Thanks John! 🙂
Great pictures! I’m also incredibly jealous.
Yes me too! Of my past self 😉 One day I’ll get back there again.
I love Barcelona – we go there the first week in October each year and never get tired of it. Great culture, food, drink, interesting fashion and even the beach is great for an urban beach.
Lucky you. I’ve only been the one time but I would love to visit again.
Beautiful photos!! I love Barcelona, it is definitely one of my favourire cities ti visit!
Nice. Thanks for your comment.
Great Photos from a really great city
I agree. I love Barcelona. Thanks.
