The weather was not so good again. But this is goodbye to the European continent for now. But this trip is still going on. Finally, I’m going to visit Istanbul and finish this trip.

Although I was in Barcelona, I could hardly do sightseeing. But I wanted to see this “Sagrada Familia”. We stopped by there on the way to the airport.

Barcelona, I love Spanish artists, so of course this city has been my dream since I was a little girl. 6 years ago, I got my wish, and just before I changed my job for the first time in my life, I remembered that I took the chance to come to this city as if it was only a few days ago.

This “Church of the Holy Family”, there used to be a game for MSX called “Gaudi, Barcelona Wind”. That’s how I learned about the existence of this city. At the time, Gaudi and Barcelona were not major or anything like that, but a few years later, the Olympics were held.

I don’t know, it’s just a game, but I had this really strong impression of it. I was longing for it so much. I dare to describe it as “Holy Family Church” because that’s what was said in the game. I can’t forget the scene in Park Güell and the scene in Sagrada Familia.

I think that’s why I like this city more than any other city in Europe, even though it was my second time. “I wish I could have seen the Holy Family Church again.

Then we continued to the airport. Barcelona airport is very clean and comfortable, as I’ve written several times already.

I felt a bit sad to leave the European continent, but I can’t help but look forward to my next destination, Istanbul. I have only a few days left of my vacation and I want to enjoy this historic city to the fullest.
