No matter where I travel in Europe, my heart always seems to return back to the Mediterranean. The weather, the lifeystyle, the vibe just screams to me. Perhaps it's the fact that I was born in Miami and spent most of my adult life in Los Angeles and that's why I feel that similar warm weather, beach centric environment. But I love it. And one of my favorite cities in this region is Barcelona. It's exciting and it's electrifyingly beautiful. On my first full day in Barcelona, I rented a bicycle in Barceloneta, an intimate seaside neighborhood within the sprawling metropolis. It was only a few euros, and I rode up and down the beach, seeing sights and enjoying the sunshine, stopping to tan for little here and here.. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.
