Chocolate Box in Barcelona, SpainChocolate Box in Barcelona, SpainOne my parent’s favorite thing to do is go around to chocolate boutiques in the city, try the chocolates, converse with the owners, and take photos that my mom uses for her blog.  I don’t mind being dragged along;) There’s a chocolate boutique in Gotic by the Barcelona Cathedral that my parents and I are frequent customers of called Chocolat-Box.  The women that work there are the sweetest things and so attentive!! We bought the most delicious chocolate spread and they brought out a complementary loaf of bread for us to have with the chocolate. Also, all of their chocolates are delicious!! I particularly liked the strawberry truffle. One word?

Spaniards are diligent followers of the no-colors-in-the-winter rule and it’s been killing me. I don’t think America abides by any fashion rules so my tendency to mix florals with hot pink coats and my blonde hair sometimes makes me feel like a big flashing red light when I’m sitting on a metro car filled with dark-haired people in browns, blacks, greys, and greens. Sometimes, I’ll adapt my outfits to Spanish standards and wear dark colors (but not without my flash of color)! SO, you can understand my excitement when it seemed as though spring turned on like the flick of a switch! The trees that lost their last leaves months ago turned green over night and I could have jumped for joy when I saw colored pants and floral scarfs on the metro!
