As you guys may have seen I was away for a couple of months, but I’m back with a amazing post.
I went for the month of July to The Netherlands. During my vacation I decided to take a weekend trip to Spain, Barcelona. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. Barcelona was beautiful and the architecture was breathless.
Arriving at the airport I took a taxi to my hotel. Which was Hotel Catalonia Park Güell. The hotel was near the Park Güell. We arrived late in the evening at the hotel. So we decided to take a walk to see what was around the area we were staying. I have to say the people there are so friendly. They were open to help us out to get to the centre of Barcelona, which meant we had to took the subway. Thank God we spoke Spanish. In Barcelonia most people talk Catalan, which is a bit more dificult if you are not familiar with the language.
Experiencing the subway was scary yet awesome. We decided to jump off at the centre so we could experience the shopping and entertainment street, La Ramblas.
Saturday was a long day. We went to La Sagrada Familia in the morning. We stood for at least 4 5minutes in the line to get tickets. When we finally got to the booth we had to buy tickets for 13.30. We had almost two and a half hours to spend so we decided to rent a bike and go explore the city. That’s how we discover The Arc de Triumf and the Parc de Ciutadella.
After two hours of biking we went back to finally get our chance to see La Sagrada Familia. It was breathtaking. To see the details, to feel it. It’s something I want everyone to experience.
After we walked thru this church and the museum, we took the metro back to our neigbourhood and walked to Park Güell. That was a super long walk. Kind of a workout to be honest. The whole park in itself is huge! And the part where you have to actually entree fee is just 1/4 th of the park. In the evening we wanted to take the night tour but we didn’t arrive in time to actually catch the bus. So we decided to go out for dinner and a night walk on the boulevard. A nice way to close out the evening and actually our weekend.
Sunday was our last day in Barcelona and we wanted to just walk for the last time on La Ramblas. So we took the subway and went there and took a cab to the airport. The experience at the airport wasn’t the best but I have to say. Those 2 days in Spain was the best. I saw so much that I decided I will be going back next year.
