Follow my blog with BloglovinSo have I mentioned yet that the cities get better as the weekends go by? Barcelona is everything that it’s cracked up to be. From the lively music to the fantastic food, and to the beautiful beaches, there wasn’t a part of it that I did not enjoy.
We stayed at St. Christopher’s Inn, which is a hostel that is located in multiple cities. It was a perfect location because it was right down the street from Palazzo Catalunya and La Rambla, which I’ll explain.
We spent the day Friday exploring. We started by eating brunch at this restaurant called Brunch & Cake by the sea. I would 10/10 recommend it. The ambiance gave off a chill beach vibe, and the food was like something I’ve never had. It was all fresh, earthy, and really creative.
We continued to beach, which was only about seven blocks away. The Barcelona coast line is huge. After soaking up a little sun, we spent the rest of the day shopping all around Barcelona but mainly on La Rambla.
La Rambla is the main street with all of the shopping and restaurants going up and down. Most of it is expensive, but there are little shops off to the sides and markets that were great. St. Josep La Boqueria Mercat is also off of La Rambla, which is the famous fruit market. I could go there every day and be a happy girl.
We ate dinner at Rosa Negra and got some of the most delicious Mexican food, not Spanish, (it truly was Mexican) and then ended the night at home since we had been up since 3 am to catch our flight….
Saturday we devoted to Park Guell. The famous park that was designed by Gaudi. The painting and mosaics were beautiful and reminded me of something that my Grammie would love. We weren’t able to do a tour of the Sagrada Familia, which I was severely disappointed in, because, by the time we got there, they were closed. I guess this just gives me a reason to have to go back to Barcelona. Total Bummer. Honestly feeling like a world traveler but I’m not complaining about it.
