We arrived in Barcelona (admittedly a bit hungover and exhausted from four days of #wwcamp) in the heat of the evening on a Sunday. The streets were quiet, but we could feel a bustle creeping in as Monday morning approached. We stayed in a lovely Airbnb near the city center - complete with balcony for morning coffee sips. That night our bodies rested, our laundry washed and we basked in the calmness of long-awaited vacation.
Monday morning greeted us with a busy market, the familiar face of a friend and fellow traveler, and miles of roaming under our feet. We explored el Marcado de la Boqueria, climbed to the top of Castell Montjuïc, (insert siesta here) and capped the day with a sunset tour of la Sagrada Familia + the best dinner of the whole trip (where I learned that sangria does in fact contain liquor… oops).
The next day we trekked to Park Güell and took a quick little jaunt over to WeWork Glories to meet the (incredibly lovely) team, rest on their (rad) terrace and sip espresso out of their (super adorable) Do What You Love espresso mugs.
Our time in Barcelona was short on paper, but long in living. Sagrada Familia was most definitely the highlight, as was meeting the WeWork family (my first international WeWork visit!) and experiencing first-hand what it means to feel at home in a space across the globe from the roof you call yours.
