Another short but sweet weekend away with 2 of my girls. Third time to Barcelona yet it still excites me to know hopfully it will be sunny and the climate will definately be in double figures. The art of Gaudi, tapas, amazing architecture, cool shops, super friendly people and bad ass Mojito's is what i love!
Again i tend to walk as much as i eat (which was alot) with my little toe just about able to take the last few steps without the fiction of my new Nike trainers rubbing on it just about bareable. Walking in Barcelona is amazing with every other building just as unique and beautiful as the next!
Our apartment was an absolute dream! All white, super bright cottage style with a roof top terrace somthing id imagine by the beach! Only thing its 5 floors up with no elevator! Great to burn off all the great food i ate, not so great after 1 too many Passion fruit Martini's!
My happy moments:
- If you love brunch with a twist you have to go to 'Brunch & Cake' i guarantee you will not regret it!!
- Dusk for some seriously strong bad ass drinks. I recommend the Mojito and also the Passion fruit Martini - taste like juice which can only mean 1 thing- drink responsibly :)
- Blanc @ Mandarin Oriental- The Octopus salad was orgasmic!... so was the Cheesecake & Caremilised Apple Lasagne for desert!!!
- Park Guell- This place is seriously amazing and definately worth a visit but make sure you bring some comfy shoes coz the hill is on a seriously steep incline!
