I'm studying abroad in Barcelona for the semester! It's only been a week & I love it already.

& of course I brought a knitting project with me. . .

I'm knitting these stockings when I have time. : )

The view outside my apartment!

I also brought this notebook for drawings here & there. . .

. . . a quick sketch I did of the beautiful Sagrada Familia.

If you've been to/live in BCN, let me know if there's anything I must see or do!

p.s. if you want to keep up with what I'm doing, I'm keeping a photo blog here: http://erin-extranjera.tumblr.com

I always bring a drawing tablet on trips but end up just writing in it in the wee hours of the night. I never seem to stay in one place long enough to indulge in a sketch until evening. It's great that your savoring you travels that way.
