Sorry for the long hiatus in posts! In the ages it’s taken me to write, I’ve done a bit of traveling beyond my home base of Paris. (And I am so grateful to be able to call Paris “home base” – at least temporarily!) Last week was Break Week, so my classmates and I had the entire week off. It was a bit ill-timed, as we had our French final exams today and have final papers due at the end of the week, but hey, any week of vacation is better than no vacation. Most of us traveled around Europe (with a large percentage of us seeking out warmer temperatures in places like Spain and Italy), while a few chose to stay in town and explore more of Paris. Luckily for me, my sister is coming to visit this weekend, so I’ll have a bit of extra time in the lovely metropolis of Paris before heading back to the States (we’re actually heading to London as well!).
Anyway, back to Break Week. I lived out a trip I’ve been dreaming up for a while… Two friends and I traversed the Spanish/Portuguese peninsula over the course of 8 days, starting in Barcelona and ending in Lisbon, with Madrid in between. It was exhausting, but for all the right reasons. We explored, ate, and walked non-stop. As this is a food/travel blog, here is my tribute to Barcelona – a highlights reel of our best meals in photo-form.

dinner @ pitarra
lunch @ cerveceria catalana
Needless to say, we ate really, really well.
