Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya

I know what I like.

Art museums in Barcelona, Spain.

After many days of sitting around the apartment doing nothing but watching downloaded movies and episodes of the Simpsons I was finally feeling better. Lo and behold the penicillin seemed to cure me of the “viral infection” I’d been suffering with for the let 6 weeks. My cough is even almost completely gone.

So after most of a week of nursing myself back to health I decided it was time to see sunlight again and check out some art museums.

I’ll be the first to admit that I know absolutely nothing about art. I’m one of those people who can just say “I know what I like.” And it just so happens that a lot of my favorite artists have roots in Barcelona, a fact that I didn’t even realize before coming here.

So I spent a morning at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, where I saw lots of Catalan art through the ages.

And the Fundacio Joan Miró, dedicated to the artist who created a lot of mixed media pieces/weird shit.

And Museu Picasso de Barcelona, which showed a good timeline of Picasso’s work through the ages.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
