And it's "Where in The World Wednesday" time!!! Check out Jessica's blog for other posts on this subject!
Back in 2008, me and my friend D booked a long weekend to Barcelona for the beginning of August. It's the first time I had ever been to Barcelona and I loved it there - I hope to go back one day and it's not like it's that far away from me - it's a 3 hour flight so it's easy to get to.
It was also fantastically warm! And we all know I like good weather. :)
Taken while on the bus tour of Barcelona.
Taking in the nightlife in a restaurant called Navarra, which was near La Ramblas.
Look!!! Mr Heckles is in Barcelona! But I thought he died???
Posing on the balcony of our hotel, The HCC Taber. Fairly basic but really nice. :)
In another restaurant, this time ON La Ramblas, called Nuria. For some reason we found it really hard to choose restaurants at night time so we ended up here twice!
Our last day. We were heading back at night so had to check out at lunchtime and were wandering about looking for somewhere to hide from the extreme sunshine. We finally found an Irish pub to hang out in, but look how pink I am from the heat!
Me posing outside our hotel. For some reason, I was getting some strange looks!
La Sagrada Familia, a famous piece of Gaudi architecture. There's a lot of famous and beautiful Gaudi architecture, but this is the most beautiful, despite the fact it's still to be completed.
I can't remember what the name of this building was but it was a 2 minute walk from our hotel and very pretty(and another Gaudi piece of architecture!) so I had to snap a picture. Can anyone help out?
Oh and this was the view from our balcony. Yup - a sex shop!!! To be honest, it provided me with much entertainment. I liked to sit out on the balcony in the afternoon and sunbathe (because it was a tiny balcony I used to take up the whole space - luckily my friend doesn't like sunshine much) and would watch the strangest people going into the shop. Like OAPs. (THAT was unexpected). It was open til late too, so at night after we got back to the hotel we would sit out watching the nighttime visitors while sipping from mini bottles of cava. One night I even ended up passing out half on the balcony, half on the bedroom floor. Oops.
Next week . . . we go to the land of the leprechauns!!! ;)
