Shopping is always enjoyable for me, but shopping in Barcelona is euphoria! My mom and I wandered the streets by las ramblas, which are known for boutiques and unique pieces. We went into shops featuring zipper clothing, leather items, and intricate jewelry. After dropping an obscene amount of money (thankfully not my own) we stopped at a cafe to recharged. I remember my mom having a revelation that she understands the beauty of taking your time and enjoying yourself, even if it just means sitting in a cafe and drinking coffee for an hour or two. I don’t think either of us would ever fully acclimate to that type of lifestyle, but it’s interesting to have that moment when you appreciate different aspects of other cultures. Deep thought of the day, think about it.
