A week in Barcelona, part 1: it smells of wee

In autumn half term we rented an Air BnB in Barcelona. It was a nice holiday – it gave us an extra little burst of summer weather when the UK was just starting to turn grey and damp.

As usual, I made a sketch diary of our activities; as usual, it took me several weeks after our return to complete it. But finally, here it is.

It’s twenty-something pages long, so, in order to spread the pain of scanning, I’m dividing it into five parts. Here’s the first, which just covers our arrival and a quick stroll around the neighbourhood.

Hope you enjoy it. As always, click and then click again on any image to see it larger.

Tomorrow: a bit of Gaudi, a trilingual boy, and lots of shoes.

  1. I really enjoyed this a lot. I’ve only been to Barcelona once, for a day, but definitely want to see more. I love making little skteches. Now you’ve inspired me to do it a bit more. And isn’t that the way…those appliances breaking down and unexpected expenses when you least need them!! Glad you got to go anyway.
