I was in London years ago but I only have a vague memory of it. This time I really fell in love with the city although it really made me miss New York and Dublin.
Unfortunately the Royal family spent Easter in Australia
The incoming storm made a good photo
News room of the BBC- so cool!
Wednesday morning I said a sad goodbye to my mom and we parted for separate airports. She was going back to NY and I was heading to Madrid to meet Kate, my friend from BC whose studying there
Plaza de Cibeles
After a wonderful two days with Kate filled with tapas, shopping and sightseeing, I took a quick flight to Barcelona and spent a solid 24 hours there. I met one of my friends from home, Will who was traveling through Spain for his break and one from BC, Addison, whose been working and studying in Barca all year

back in my element
Will and I were in heaven with all the surf shops
deadly clouds that chased me and Addison
Gaudí's Parque Güell
Barcelona definitely lived up to my expectations! My only regret is not having more time in Spain but I was definitely happy to get back to Venice. I've also realized my Spanish (after taking it for seven years) is really rusty... actually I think my Italian is just as good at this point
