Here’s my final post from Barcelona, Spain. Sanjeev and I had a dinner with a 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. 🙂
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. 🙂
I wore this lovely off shoulder crochet dress and frolicked around the city. 😀 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. 🙂 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. 🙂
See you sooooon!!! :))
Must Do Things :
- Definitley try Tapas and Sangria
- El Corte Ingles is a great mall to shop at.
- Passeig de Gràcia 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 place 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.
