Barcelona happened to be a warm welcome after the biting cold of Prague. The city was alive with smells of food, milling tourists and chatty locals.
The Sagrada Familia was the most remarkable sight for me. You know how usually buildings and their facades look better on the outside? And how we are just contented with a photo posing outside showing we’ve “been there done that”? This was not the case. The interior was just mesmerising and I definitely urge everyone to visit inside when in Barcelona.
Parc Güell was highly anticipated by us all, however it fell short and I’ll explain why – it just looked better in photos! That was the only reason. It made me wonder how many times each of us has fallen victim to what is real and what we see online. But still, I was happy to have been there 🙂
Our favourite eateries were:
La Boqueira food market
Heaps to choose from, starting with seafood, fruits, vegetables, candies and so on. For the man and I, we were enamoured by the jamon vendors. It was like being in a wonderland!
A big hit with us was Casa de Tapes Cañota ( introduced by my food-obsessed friend Joo Li, small in size but mighty in appetite). The menu is adorable, a booklet filled with delicious delights and entertaining illustrations.
