Barcelona, Spain + Must Do Things in Barcelona

park-guell-barcelona-photos

Here’s my final post from Barcelona, Spain. Sanjeev and Iย had a dinner with aย reader and her husband in on our last evening there. It was quite nice to meet someone all the way midway in the world. :))

The last two days we spent hopping around the city catching up on Park Guell, Camp Nou, the National Museum and then finally spending a long evening at the Barceloneta Beach.

Camp Nou became a rather emotional journey for both of us even though we are not a football fan. Reading the stories about the players, looking at the medals, and seeing the photographs – it gave us goosebumps. It has become a dream now to come back to Camp Nou to watch a live match. Can’t wait for that. ๐Ÿ™‚

We found the weather of Spain to be absolutely gorgeous. It’s pretty much how Indian weather is in March/ April – quite comforting and warm. I mean coming from the freezing Amsterdam, it felt like a relief. Plus we got to enjoy the beach so that was awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

I wore this lovely off shoulder crochet dress and frolicked around the city. ๐Ÿ˜€ The blue Chanel ‘Wallet on Chain’ is a new addition to my collection of bags. As I said, Barcelona had incredible shopping. We just ended up during holiday time so couldn’t shop much. But still, I scored quite an epic in one go itself. hihih

I hope you enjoyed the photos. ๐Ÿ™‚ We are in Lisbon at the moment,which apparently has become our second favourite place after Amsterdam. I can’t wait to share it with you all. :-* Leaving you with dozens of photos and your Barcelona cheat sheet. ๐Ÿ™‚

See you sooooon!!! :))

Must Do Things :

      • Definitley try Tapas and Sangria
      • El Corte Ingles is a great mall to shop at.
      • Passeig de Grร cia has some of the best shopping both high street and luxury.
      • Camp Nou for sure and if you are a football fan, you MUST not leave it. Plus if you can be around there during the match time, I think it would be awesome. It also has the biggest Nike store in the world for football lovers. Great placeย for souvenirs.
      • It’s a city of Antoni Gaudi so get hold of his structures for sure – Park Guell, Casa Mila, Sagarada Familia
      • Picasso Museum and the area around it is gorgeous. There’s also a Gothic Church in that area. Check it out if you can.
      • They also have a dances such as Flamenco Dance. You can ask about it at your hotel.
      • La Boqueria Market is a heaven for food lovers.

PS : You need tickets for most of the site visits. So you may book them in advance through your hotel or can also get them once you reach there. If you book tickets beforehand you have to be there at the site on the time you have booked tickets for.

Park Guell by Antoni Gaudi - Park Gรผell is the reflexion of Gaudรญโ€™s artistic plenitude, which belongs to his naturalist phase (first decade of the 20th century). During this period, the architect perfected his personal style through inspiration from organic shapes found in nature
