HOW Travel Photo Diary: Spain

“The more you see the less you know.”

I am fortunate enough to have been able to spend time in Spain for the last 4 summers. My husband, Alex, is Spanish and has spent time on the Costa Del Sol every year since he was a child. Going with him is like traveling with a local. He knows amazing restaurants, the best places to see, tiny towns to visit, and the right beaches along with his favorite chiringuitos. Spain has become such a special place to me, a bit of heaven and a place where I feel at true peace. I can breath a little deeper, walk a little slower and clear my mind. The sun feels differently on my skin than anywhere else in the world. When it comes time to leave, we find ourselves talking about what we will do the next time we will be there. I love that Alex and I have found our own traditions and have created such beautiful memories.

This year, his entire side of the family was there with us and we all traveled to Barcelona for 3 days. And let me tell you we experienced it like true tourists! Next to New York, Barcelona is my most favorite city in the world. There is something about it that makes me feel like a child, with my eyes wide open ready to explore every corner. The colorful city that has so much of Gaudi’s influence and work feels like a fantasy land. I felt alive and inspired at each new place we discovered. Before we left on our trip, I purchased my first Canon camera. I still have no idea what I am doing with it, but I was pushed to learn something new, try to capture beautiful images through my perspective, and see the world a bit differently.

I have seen so many beautiful places, but I still have so much to learn from this huge world. I really am just a tiny speck in it all.

Alex’s cousins live in Barcelona and gave us the most amazing tour of the city. This is a picture of Paula taking a picture of the city she is lucky enough to call home.
