Following our First Night In Barcelona we gather for breakfast at the excellent Barcelona B&B and share a table with some fellow travellers. This provides us with an excellent opportunity to share some tips about what to see and do in and around the city. We then head out to explore what Barcelona has to offer making a bee line for the famous Las Ramblas.
Despite the bustling surroundings you kind of know when you hit Las Ramblas, which is a huge walkway through the heart of the city. Passing shops, kiosks bars and restaurants we then came across a place I had been particularly keen to explore La Boqueria – which, being a lover of all things food and drink, was a fantastic treat.
Walking among the various range of stalls presenting a tantalising mix of colours, scents, sights and flavours, I couldn’t help but take some pictures to capture the market in all its glory – I hope you enjoy!
This has to be the coolest fridge ever (sorry couldn’t resist) I want one!
This just looks like a regular photograph and indeed it is, but look closely and see if you notice anything.
Happy Friday Everybody
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!
Saw this walking through Barcelona, I think that maybe the owner DOESN’T want anyone parking outside, but I’ve been wrong before ha ha.
Shot of the early morning sky before the sun blazes through in Benicassim. I love this picture, the light, the clouds, and the last of the dark night above the sleeping town. Only six weeks till we go back, I can’t wait!
