Barcelona

Despite living in Europe my entire life I still hadn't been to Barcelona until last week. Why? I personally blame it on Italy. Italy has always been such a big part of my life and always a top choice when it comes to escaping everyday life during a weekend. You might call that boring but even though I've been to Italy every year of my life so far, I never seem to tire of it. That's probably why Spain Barcelona has had to wait until now. I'm kind of glad it did though since I think this was the perfect way to experience the city.

I joined W Hotels and Tara Stiles (the loveliest woman and amazing yoga guru) for a weekend full of yoga, fitness fun and #posewhenever. Doesn't sound like something I would enjoy due to all the croissants and macarons you see around here? That might be true but I have to admit that I had a fantastic time – both doing the yoga and experiencing the city. I mean, how can yoga on a paddle board, cooking classes in a kitchen with a DJ playing and watching the sun set while doing yoga not be anything but fantastic?!

This is a weekend I won't forget anytime soon and hopefully that's also true about all the yoga poses we learned during this trip. I'd love to incorporate a bit more of what I learned while away into my everyday life. The calm (and exhaustion) I felt after our 6am sunrise yoga session is something I'll try to chase in the future without a doubt. Barcelona, you were amazing and I'm definitely coming back for you again!
