Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona surprised me in many ways. I was pleasantly surprised by all of the stunning beaches, insane nightlife, and the modern style that it has to offer. I was shocked by the unique architecture of buildings that sat right in the middle of the city. Even though Barcelona is a European city, it was also very similar to Los Angeles, California. With the trendy restaurants over looking the beach, palm trees, and awesome clubs, it was the perfect mix of everything I could ever ask for. This was all even more exciting because of the fact that Barcelona is where I celebrated my 21st birthday! Check out my tips below to have just as great of a time in Barcelona as I did.
