Beautiful Barcelona and the Catalunya MotoGP

As we spend another weekend hibernating while more snow accumulates outside I find myself daydreaming and looking back at past travels with fond memories.

In 2010 once again we planned a trip around the MotoGP motorcycle races, which this time took us to Catalonia, Spain. Race track (Circuit de Barcalona-Catalunya) being conveniently located a short distance north of Barcelona it was an easy choice as we could take in the races as well as take in this amazing city.

Here’s a glimpse of our time at the races and the amazing city of Barcelona, where the very unique architectural style of Gaudi is present in the most famous of landmarks such as Gaudi’s apartments and Basílica de la Sagrada Família. I only wish we had more time to see much more of the city.
