14 Jul Barcelona, Spain
Hey babes sorry I’m a bit delayed on posting about my travels, I’ve been so busy over here! On to weekend trip two: Barcelona! Barcelona is the third big city I have visited in Spain and it probably has to be my favorite so far (sorry Madrid, you’re pretty cool too). The city is absolutely gorgeous and the fact that it has an amazing beach right outside of it might have swayed my decision a little bit (a lot). I would definitely add “Barcelona” to anyone’s list of must see cities.
There are so many places to go and things to see in Barcelona. The city is well known for La Sagrada Familia & Park Guell which both I’m sure you’ve heard of. Do I have any loyal 2000’s Cheetah Girl fans reading this? If any of you were crazy fan girls like me, you would probably know that Cheetah Girls 2 was filmed in Barcelona & the Strut music video in Park Guell. I highly recommend checking out the famous basilica & park because there’s honestly nothing like them anywhere else. Gaudi’s designs make both places simply indescribable.
As far as other places to go, I would definitely check out:
The Pier— where you go to see pretty boats & potentially try a water sport.. I’m always a proponent of jet skis
Barceloneta Beach— this place is filled with restaurants & bars on the beach and is always lively. If you like to party this is the perfect place for you—the night really starts around 1 & people will be out until 6 am or so. Opium is a really fun discoteca located on Barceloneta beach.
Las Ramblas— more restaurants & bars but shopping, shopping, shopping
Those are just a few suggestions, but if you go to Barcelona you won’t have any trouble finding fun things to do. There are so many guided tours and excursions available. Even just walking or biking around is tons of fun because the buildings are colorful and uniquely designed. I hit most of the city basics, but I would highly recommend checking out trip advisor for some more excursions if you travel here.
