      Last Day in Barcelona - Colonia Guell

      September 10, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 18 °C

      Enjoyed the best breakfast at Santa Caterina of cortado, tomato bread and proscuitto tortilla.
      Unfortunately it was our last day and also raining but nevertheless we went out into the suburbs to Gaudi’s crypt/ church. Certainly a lesser known Gaudi site but the information centre was excellent and it was certainly worth seeing. The town was a Guell owned textile town where the workers were housed also. All the buildings were built in red exposed brick with architectural interest added with contrasting directions and placement of the bricks.
      The crypt/church itself in true Gaudi tradition was not finished but included many of the design features he was known for - contrasting direction of bricks, diffent angles and rock, mosaics, sloping mis-aligned columns and stained glass.
      Had lunch back at Restaurant d’Andrew - red peppers stuffed with bacalau mornay, steak and mash, chocolate pudding and the worst wine wine I have ever encountered that tasted like perfume.
      Bought empanadas for the airport and left early given warning of a an ongoing airport security strike. Things got worse from here as I got through by 7pm but flights were delayed due to the bad weather. This meant a 1:15am departure (10:30 scheduled), a complimentary visit to the VIP lounge coutesy of 28degrees and arrival at my airport hotel at Fiumicino at 3:30am.

    • Day 18


      September 15, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

      So I didn't think Barcelona would be this big! It makes me think of a Spanish New York with more historical and artsy buildings. I am here only for 2 days and that will be enough! I've decided to give in to the tourist bus and hop on! Lucie - you were right - this is a great idea to visit a city in so little time. I actually loved it lol.

      I've decided to leave for Nice, France, tomorrow. I will explore the Cote d'azur and make my way up to Paris for the 25th to meet my mama 😍😍😍👌👌👌. Spain - it's been great! Time to speak French. 😊😊😊

      P.s. Barcelona is sooooo expensive !!! I found this cute little airbnb to stay in this girls apartment - she is quite nice. I think I've seen her once since I've been here. The room is big and quiet. Even though the apartment is not amazing and quite old, it's right in center town so it avoids me having to take the metro to get everywhere.

      P.p.s. I went shopping for new clothes - my camino clothes were not cutting it here! Fashion capital of Spain where everyone is litteraly perfect 24-7.

      Diagonal Mar Centro Comercial

      February 19, 2014 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

      Barcelona ohne Shopping? Kann man machen. Es schont den Geldbeutel, macht aber keinen Spaß und ist für uns Frauen wahrscheinlich kaum vorstellbar. Richtig so Ladies.
      Mein Tipp für alle, die auf ein tolles Shoppingerlebnis im Urlaub nicht verzichten wollen, aber für die es auch nicht Prada, Gucci oder Dior im Zentrum sein müssen, finden im #DiagonalMarCentroComercial sicher das Passende für sich. Nur 2 Metrostationen von Poblenou entfernt befindet sich das Einkaufszentrum mit Meerblick. Übrigens für wer meinem Tipp folgt und seine Unterkunft unweit des Passeig de García i Faria hat, kann auch einen wunderschönen Strandspaziergang zum Einkaufscenter machen, um das Angenehme mit dem Nützlichen zu verbinden.Read more
