Another week away, another place, another plane…this time I just came back from the beautiful and charismatic Barcelona!
A few friends and myself decided to book a city break to this famous city which is quite close from my city (Madrid) but that I’ve never visited before.
We all stayed in the W hotel (Vela, as they called it there), as soon as you arrive to this stunning hotel you get the feeling to be in the paradise, just right in front of the beach, its unique design is something we never saw before!
The streets of Barcelona have plenty of “flavour”, from the famous Ramblas to the Sagrada Familia, everything is full of colours and life, I just found the cultural part quite expensive, to ask someone 20 euros (per person!) to visit a monument for me is abusive, Culture should be affordable to everyone in my opinion…
If you’ve never visited Barcelona I would totally recommend you to go outside the main streets, get to know the city at its best! try some “pan tumaca” (home bread with tomato, garlic and olive oil) while having the local beer Moritz in a secret garden!
One of the best things that happened to me while being there was one of the days while looking for a nice terrace to have a beer and then in front of me was a very famous Spanish actor (Mario Casas, I’ve always been a huge fan!) Barcelona couldn’t get any better for me at that point… 😉
It’s been such an amazing weekend, I cameback in love with this city, with all the art, the food, the sun…I tent to forget how lucky I am to be from Spain and normally when travelling we chose countries that are miles apart, when most of the times we just need to look around to realise that we had a paradise right in front of us…
I leave you with this song tonight in honour of this magical Barcelona.
Happy Thursday Beauties!
