|Every year for my birthday I go somewhere to celebrate it – this year it was Barcelona with Patri. In short: it started terribly but overall it was great.The reason it started terribly was due to the fact that we woke up at 4 am to make our 7am flight with Easyjet that turned out to be 3 hours late! It informed all passengers it was delayed – but not by how long. After 3 hours, and a missed breakfast in barcelona, it arrived. Never easy jet again!
On the airplane Patri gave me my birthday gift – it was a box with three numbered envelopes. Had to be open in order. I opened the first one and it was a reservation to a hotel – it was a really nice hotel because the design inside was wicked, the location was perfect and breakfast was heavenly. It is recommended – and the price is not too bad – it is called 987.
The 3rd and final envelope was the best I must say – baring in mind nr 1 and 2 was already amazing. It was a dinner at the restaurant Manairo which recently got a Michelin Star.
Rest of the trip in Barcelona involved some shopping, sightseeing, getting lost, going outside Barcelona to a place called Sitges which was very nice. Due to the volcano in Iceland we got “stuck” another 4 days but Patri’s cousin was a star and didn’t mind that we stayed at her place – thank you Sonia!!. On top of that – eating Tapas on a daily basis, drinking wine and checking out Barcelona was not too bad. 🙂 I had been to Barcelona when I was 17 but now I truly got to experience it and I really liked the city – more clean and organised than I thought (especially if you compare to Paris). My biggest impact of this trip was all the lovely food – I luuuuuuv Tapas!
This last photo I HAD to show – we went to a restaurant and asked for the menu in Spanish and English. Now….check out the prices on the different menus…….
and this is what you can buy on one of the major markets…….
