Spanish Travels: Day Trip to Montserrat

Spain, Barcelona, Catalonia, hiking

While road-tripping across Spain with my family this summer (a wild time, by the way—keep reading to find out more), we decided to take a half-day trip to Montserrat in Catalonia.

Whenever I travel, one of the first things I notice is the fashion – I mean duh, how could I not?! After spending more than 35 days in Spain (oof – I forget what real bacon tastes like), I think I’ve gathered enough data points to make some declarations about the styles and trends popular in the country… And let me tell you, the fashion does not disappoint!
