Photo Sunday: Stairs

Paid admission to the Museu Tauri in Barcelona allows you to explore this former bullfighting arena. We climbed up these “Vertigo” stairs to wander around the upper deck seating area.

I blogged about the museum on my Eurotrip site.

This is my entry for this week’s Photo Sunday Challenge: Stairs.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

An odd food spot trend in Barcelona: naming restaurants after American states. I ran past “Nebraska” in our L’Eixample neighborhood. We also found “Kentucky” on one of our museum trips.

In Sitges, “Kansas” had a lovely bar on the beach.

Travel Theme: Spooky

I’m not feeling the Halloween spirit this year. Sadly, this costumed holiday falls on a work day. I don’t have the energy to deal with trick-or-treaters and party people when I have to be at work before sunrise.

Maybe next year. For now, I stumbled on vacation photos that would fit this week’s Travel Theme: Spooky.

We gave Hugo, the bat, a free trip to California. We’re trying to find him a bat cave geocache for his new home.

Photo Sunday: Delicate

My ENG Operator: “How was Barcelona?”
Me: “Too short.”

The transition to life back in the States feels surreal. The sights, flavors and people of Spain have turned into a dream.

I miss my morning ritual of café con leche on the balcony of our L’Eixample apartment, overlooking students chasing balls and residents drying laundry. I’ve returned to my American morning habit of strong Starbucks coffee (with fresh ground beans) and last night’s 11 PM aircheck. Then driving to work before sunrise.

I have my vacation photos. I nearly filled up my iPhone 4 with all the files. Totally worth it.

Now, I can look back at the best meal of my life.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Today – I’m pouring over political highlights from last night’s Presidential debate.
Last night – I cheered on the Giants with my hubby and puppy on our couch.
Last weekend – I said “Adios” to Spain and flew back home to the Bay Area.

Now, I’m going over a ton of vacation photos. I spotted this cross on the Santa Cova trail on Montserrat. You can read more about our day trip out of Barcelona on my Eurotrip blog.
