Travel Guide | Barcelona

Ana Fritsch of Lucky Penny Blog Share Her Definitive Guide To Barcelona | www.luckypennyblog.com

When I sent a link with cheap flight prices to Barcelona to my husband saying “Birthday present?” I was semi-kidding but when he sent me back a receipt for our tickets I was blown away. I had only ever been to Europe once before (remember my Paris trip?) so I was really excited. What was even more exciting was that it was going to be a trip just for us.

So go ahead and click through to see everywhere we ate, went, stayed, and the best spots to snag a great Instagram picture.!

It’s official…I’m 30! I thought I’d be dreading this day (and the inevitable grey hairs and wrinkles that will come with it) but to be honest, I’ve never felt better. It might have to do with the fact that I spent most of my 20’s pregnant or postpartum and caring for babies so it wasn’t the carefree decade most people experience. But maybe it’s just that I’ve learned a few things about myself that I didn’t really know 10 years ago and that helps me feel more settled and confident going forward.
