Barcelona

By Haleigh In Non classé

I just got back from a lovely week in Barcelona. Barcelona feels just like a little hop skip and jump from Paris to sunny paradise. There were parties, new friends, beach days, pool days, and lots and lots of amazing tapas and other food!

La Boqueria, the large market off of Las Ramblas has the most amazing assortment of colorful foods.

My favourite are the fresh juices, someone really should open a place with these in Paris!

Plenty of candy…

And more juice!

It’s so hot there in the summer many street vendors sell these pretty fans to help you keep cool.

Las Ramblas has many flower vendors.

Pretty little dried bouquets.

Beautiful mosaics and stained glass windows all over.

Clear skies and leafy trees to hide in the shade.

The roof top pool at our hotel.

And this amazing white chocolate brownie at the opening of the amazing new restaurant Big Fish which you must try if you make it to Barcelona. There is a little glimpse of what my vacation looked like although I didn’t carry my camera around much in order to avoid being targeted by pickpockets. Best thing I came back with is a tan! What are your summer vacation plans?

    Hey sweetie- I love Barcelona and trips to the Boqueria for fruit and smoothies, and mingling with the locals really early on in the morning! We usually stay far away from the ramblas and spend way too much time and pennies shopping! Look forward to more photos.xxxxx
    visit me soon!

    Oh my gosh! Colour Colour Colour so fantastic, what a stunning place and I am glad you had such a super time.
    Being an English woman I like to also think of myself as eternally European, and I simple love all the colours of Europe, and the brownie…well just yummy. Clever girl, capturing Barcelona Beauty.
    Thank you for walking through my garden, a place of peace, serenity and simplicity. Beautiful Nova Scotia, we are so blessed to experience these delightful worldly places.
    KEEP having FUN.

    YAY!!!
    J’y étais il y a…3 semaines !!!!
    J’ai a-do-ré Barcelone. On a pris la même photo du magasin avec la mosaïque partout, trop jolie!

    Tu n’aurais pas pris le pack proposé par Voyage Privé, par hasard? Je crois que l’offre pour Barcelone était un hôtel avec piscine sur le toit….. 😉

    En tout cas tu as eu l’air de bien t’amuser.
    Je n’ai qu’une hâte : y retourner, et voir tout ce que je n’ai pas pu voir en 3 jours !!!

    Bisous ma chère

    The Plastiscines are one of my favourite bands!
    Fancy that!

    The remix is wonderful, it reminds me of summer days spent in the salty ocean water, and the hot sand! This winter has been so dark and cold, I’m actually waiting for summer. (Which is a first, since I never usually like summer)

    Sincerely,
    elaine

    Interesting, thanks for that. My son has a terrible aversion to eating raw fruit for some reason, so I make it into smoothies for him and then he can’t get enough of it! I also found some great smoothie recipe here and thought I’d share – lots of other great ideas there.
