Wanderlust: Barcelona, Spain

One of the many perks of working in an office is getting a random g-chat pop-up from a co-worker with a link to the latest craze on BuzzFeed.  This week?  That link led me to a quiz called, "What City Should You Actually Live In?"
& if you haven't taken it yet, then I suggest you click here before reading on.
You could say I'm beyond jealous that K got Paris as her city.  I mean, we know we LOVE Paris.  & I do love Spain – we've been lucky enough to visit Madrid, Cordoba, Seville & Nerja.  But, I have yet to visit the city I should be living in: Barcelona.

I can't help but think that the architecture exudes a sense of mystery – almost as if walking through the city would be similar to diving headfirst into a scene out of "Alice in Wonderland."  

What time of year is best to visit? & does anyone else have this beautiful city on top of their must-see list?
