Barcelona: My holiday post!

I'm back from Barcelona. I've been a bit AWOL recently because big things have been happening! Firstly I got on a doctorate programme of my dreams; then I had a car crash, and then I went to Barcelona! I thought I'd share some of my holiday and the results of my Barcelona Body challenge with you!

We spent so much time on the beach - I got that French Connection bikini out in the end and loved it (see this post for my holiday clothes list)



Jumping the waves


Posing on the beach to make people back home jealous. 





We also did touristy things, we walked miles from our hotel into town along the beach and back streets every day which was brilliant. We went to Las Ramblas, La Sagrada Familia, the gothic end of town, the zoo!

And obviously we ate and drank a lot! I am now a huge fan of a good sangria, and I tried enough to know which ones are good!


We also tried a proper paella with mussels, clams, enormous prawns/mini lobsters, WHOLE baby octopus, and squid. Being quite squeamish about seafood, I felt really proud of myself for eating all of it (and the sangria helped)




For anyone considering going to Barcelona, I totally recommend it. We had the most brilliant (and quite romantic) time and could have stayed much longer than 5 days. Now I'm back I'm feeling the post holiday depression badly, but now the countdown to my birthday and next holiday to Bruges is on for July!

  2. Glad you had a good time! I'm thinking about booking a trip to Barca in a couple of weeks, is there quite a bit of variety food-wise? I'm a fussy vegetarian and bread is usually what I live off on holiday! xx
