TRAVEL | Barcelona - Day One

27 Aug 2014

I went to Barcelona last year and loved it. Absolutely fell in love with the city. My sisters wanted to go on holiday and we couldn't agree on a destination - I thought Barcelona might be a suitable holiday for us. Apologies - this post is picture heavy.

Rundown of the day. 

  • Flew from Gatwick Airport to Barcelona - El Prat airport.
  • Dropped our bags at the hotel, freshened up and headed straight out.
  • Took the train to Parc Montjuic - you will see the most beautiful botanical garden just 5 mins walk from the metro station (pics below).
  • Got on the cable car and enjoyed the beautiful scenic view of Barcelona.
  • The cable car took us from Parc Montjuic to Barceloneta beachfront - walked on the beachfront. Took a break and enjoyed the scenery whilst eating some crepes and waffles.
  • Walked from Barceloneta beach to the Barcelona Port and browsed Maremagnum centre, grabbed some dinner at Udon (the pork dumplings were soooooo good).
  • Walked from the Port to La Rambla - extremely tired with aching backs and sore feet - jumped on the metro back to the hotel. 
Stay tuned for our activities on Day Two!
