First Night in Barcelona

Breakfast Room in the Barcelona BB

Breakfast Room in the Barcelona BB

Arriving as the sun was bidding a fond farewell to the evening, a short hop into the city on the train from the airport; and then on to the Metro. It was just after 10pm and the city was still bustling and vibrant as we arrived at our accommodation, our home from home for the next three days and nights – The Barcelona BB which came very highly rated on Trip Advisor and truly did not disappoint.

We were greeted by Kiku who showed us around and helped us get our bearings as well as throwing some excellent dinning recommendations our way. A quick freshen up and we ventured to La Rita Restaurant (one of Kiku’s picks) for an excellent three course meal, washed down by a beautiful bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.

Being British the difference in culture hits you straight away, the Spanish love to go out, they love to drink and above all they love their food. Meals are taken later in the evening so considering our arrival time, we were perfectly placed to get straight into the Spanish way of life; only a couple of hours in we were already loving every minute of it!

Fatberg Threatens London Streets

A giant 15 Tonne Fatberg clogged up the sewage system underneath London streets and took 10 days for workers to clear. The video footage on the Telegraph Website shows a mobile CCTV Unit exploring the cause of a blockage before finding the horrific mass of fat!

If you were complaining about your day in work, lets face it, it could be worse!

Our Tour of Spain

Flying above the clouds the holiday we’ve been planning for the past few months has finally arrived. Our destination for the first leg of the trip will be cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. I cant wait to take in the food, the sites and the opportunity to stroll around such a beautiful and historic city bathing in the sunshine.

We are due to take in four amazing and different places: Barcelona, then Benicassim for the Fib Festival, then Madrid and finally Alicante; I can’t wait to experience the sights, sounds and flavours of Spain and to share them all in my blog.

As I take a sip from my warm bottle of water which washes down an airport meal deal; what am I most looking forward to? At this moment I am thinking of the food. Just an hour to go till touchdown!
