I realise I haven’t posted in ages but I’ve been soo busy with work I just couldn’t fit everything in! I’m recently home from Barcelona – I loved it, take me back!! So I decided to share some photos of my experience. We arrived on Monday afternoon and I immediately fell in love with the city, it is beautiful. I couldn’t wait to get organised in the hotel and get out exploring!
Our hotel was about a 5 minute walk to the beach, where there are bars, restaurants and nice little shops and also where the IceBar is. We went here one afternoon, it is so cool! For only 15 euros you get admission, a shiny IceBar coat & gloves and also a cocktail of your choice! Definitely worth the money for the experience.
We spent our days sunbathing and relaxing; and our evenings shopping, eating and drinking out. La Ramblas is central and the main shopping area of Barcelona. Down a cute cobbled street there are lots of outdoor restaurants and bars to choose between – from traditional Spanish restaurants to the Hard Rock cafe you are spoilt for choice!
We did the city sightseeing bus tour one afternoon which cost 22 euros and lasted about 2 hours to go around all the stops. You are free to get on and off as you please, which is good. We seen the Sagrada Familia (mobbed with tourists) it is a stunning building though. We got off at Nou Camp for the football stadium tour and spent a while there.
Lastly… SHOPPING! Pull & Bear, Zara, Topshop, Bershka…. I was in heaven. The shops are open late, so shopping after dinner while tipsy wasn’t so good for my bank balance, but I just had to go wild. I had never been in a Pull and Bear before but I love it now! I feel it’s a bit of a mix between Forever 21/Topshop.. amazing!!
Over all, it was an amazing getaway and I wish I’d spent longer there. I would definitely go back, there’s so much more I need to see.
