Do you like to read? I do, so I plan to find a Spanish sweetheart in Barcelona next April and celebrate Saint Jordi’s day with her. Like Valentine’s Day it is a romantic holiday. On April 23rd the man gives a rose to a woman as sign of love and in return, the woman gives a book as a sign for eternal love. Thousands of stands of roses and bookstalls are set up for the celebration. Around 4 million roses and 800,000 books are purchased on this day for lovers to declare their love. An interesting fact: The City of Love (Paris, France) is home to the Eiffel Tower, but the original location was supposed to be Barcelona! Barcelona is over 2,000 years old and has a lot of history to explore. I also enjoyed sunbathing on the Mediterranean coast during my trip! Purrs, Gulliver
