MySpot: Love in Black and White

"A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. 
It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences."

Dave Meurer

Barcelona: Ancient Walls

Barcelona’s Gothic quarter is a fascinating and rewarding place to explore. 
The Barri Gòtic is the centre of Barcelona, 
where the city originated, 
and where the main public buildings are located. 
It is a labyrinth of interconnecting dark streets connecting with squares. 
Most of the buildings are from the 14th and 15th century, 
when Barcelona was at the height of its commercial prosperity.
