How my phone almost got stolen in Barcelona

I liked Barcelona. I really do. Compared to the rest of Spain, this Catalonian city is filled with rich Gaudi influences, magnificent architectures, cheap beers and not-so-cheap tapas. Barcelona was also my first getaway into Spain before I made my way down south into Portugal. And it was in Barcelona, that my phone almost got stolen right under my nose.
