In april 2012, i headed to barcelona.

It was warmish and the sun was shining, but definitely wasn’t sun bathing weather.

I loved Barcelona, it encompasses everything I love, good food, good drinks, sun and beach.

I stayed in La Barceloneta, which is a local neighbourhood right on the beach in the heart of Barcelona there is definitely a language barrier in a few places, especially if you are avoiding the tourist spots.

My notes:
-Definitely go in summer, when it is hot and sunny
-Take the hop on, hop off tour bus on day one so you can see where you want to explore over the next few days on your own
-Hire a scooter for a day and explore, its great fun! take a trip up the mountain for some breath-taking views.
-Have a mojito, or two, or three or fifty.
-Eat paella and tapas, and nothing else.
-Get lost for a day shopping in Las Ramblas.
-Visit the market at Las Ramblas, the market is mazing, from fresh fish, to meats, to hundreds of fresh fruit juices and smoothies. it’s a food lovers paradise.
-Rent a bicycle and spend a day peddling around the city
-Visit the camp nou and pay your respects to a truly great football club
