Over 100,000 people from all over the world will participate to the coming 2019 edition of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry. It’s the largest and most famous trade fair event held in Barcelona every year. Simona Hughes, a marketing manager for a company based in California, was one of the over 100,000 participants at MWC last year. She came to Barcelona last year to attend MWC for her company. It was the third time in a row she participated to a MWC edition and despite that she never had the time to see Barcelona as the Mobile World Congress venue is located outside the city, near the airport. As she loves traveling and also shooting pictures being an enthusiast photographer, she managed to spend an additional day in town after MWC was over before flying back to the States.
If you really wish to enjoy Barcelona and enjoy an unusual Barcelona photo tour, you have to come during La Diada de Sant Jordi. Sant Jordi is a Catalan holiday held on 23 April and is known also as El dia de la Rosa (The Day of the Rose) or El dia del Llibre (The Day of the Book). The main event of this original festival is the exchange of gifts between sweethearts, loved ones and colleagues. Historically, men gave women roses, and women gave men a book to celebrate the occasion “a rose for love and a book forever.”
