I still have no words to describe how amazing and artful the Antonio Gaudi architecture in Barcelona is.


He was so ahead of his time. I feel like the rest of the world has yet to catch up to him, and he died in 1926.

Almost everything he did was inspired by nature, and there is a certain playfulness of how he incorporates outdoor elements to his structures. The sea, forest, animals. There's so many different ways you can interpret his work.

The most spectacular of his works is still unfinished.

Outside, it a bit of a mess. Inside, the Sagrada Família is something very touching and beautiful.


I've never felt more outdoors in the indoors before. It was like being in a very old forest.

When the sun came out, the entire space filled with light and the stained glass dappled the floor spectacularly.

It is scheduled for completion in 2028, where the facade is getting more and more layers and towers. It's quite overwhelming.


The other really cool thing that Gaudí left behind was the Guell park. It's a hike up a very large hill to get there, but you are rewarded with views of the city and the sea.

It was all just so weird and interesting, nothing could have spoiled my mood.
