Playa de los Muertos

I have never seen water this clear in my life.

This is Playa de los Muertos.

Playa de los Muertos quite literally means the Beach of the Dead.

Perhaps it holds that name because visitors think they’ve died and gone to heaven . . .

BUT LOOK! . . . A sign of life!

Maybe it was given that name because of the trek to get to the actual beach . . .

. . . I only fell once 😂

Seriously, the beach is GORGEOUS and worth it but it’s a downhill trek so make sure you’re wearing solid shoes as it’s a bit rocky. (I was not prepared.) The beach itself is all pebbles as well, so keep that in mind if you plan on visiting!

I still can’t get over how clear the water was. #MediterraneanLife

So, where does the name Playa de los Muertos really come from? 

Apparently, its name comes from the many sailors who perished in the seas and washed up here.  At least it’s a beautiful place to die . . .  👻

Good ol’ Granada

Located in Spain’s Andalusia region, Granada is a charming city chock full o’ history. With the Sierra Nevada mountains lining the landscape and medieval architecture all around, it’s easy to see why the Royals called this place home.

Barcelona Part II

Greetings from Rome! I’m about to go on a four hour walking tour here, but first I wanted to share some more photos from the lovely Barcelona. From Parc Guell, to the delicious tapas, paella, and churros to beach photoshoots and visiting Camp Nou (Europe’s largest stadium), exploring this Spanish city was a blast.

Hola from Barcelona!

Well, here I am writing from SPAIN where it is significantly warmer than Iceland. I’m totally loving Barcelona so far – every street is so damn strollable! Check out the view from our hostel (Kabul Hostel)…

imageP.s. We each paid $51 TOTAL for four nights plus free breakfast and dinner. Ummmm, can I just live here forever?!imageimageimageimageimageimageI love buncha crunch so I was suuuuper excited to find this cereal in a local supermercata.imageimageYes, we went to McDonald’s in Spain but it was late at night and like the only place open. I’m glad we did or else I never would’ve known that heart-shaped burgers were a thing.

imageimageimageimageSaying my prayers inside Gaudi’s famous Sagrada Familia church. They weren’t selling tickets to go up the towers (sad face) but we paid for a walking tour for like 28 euro which was worth it. Learned a bunch about the history and architecture of this beautiful church (which is still under construction to complete Gaudi’s original plan). Below is one of the famous houses in Barcelona, also designed by Gaudi.imageI have so many more photos to share with y’all but I’m working off of my iPad and my SD card reader attachment is being veryyy temperamental. I’ll leave you with this photo for now which is the view from Parc Guell — more to come!image
