Yep, I went to Barcelona a month ago and it was a really great experience!
A defo place to visit if you're into travelling. :D
First up! Breakfast and Outfit of the day!
We took a flight from Liverpool to Barcelona and from Barcelona back to Birmingham .
Waiting for the train to Liverpool !
And off we go !!!!
People who went - yingping, weijing, kelvin, pongpong and mua ! haha
Their shopping centre called Arena.
We stayed in a low budget hostel, it was alright though for a hygiene freak like me. haha
Its called Pillow One Hostel
You can click and look at the website. Really a not bad place for a budget trip ^_^
First stop, Font Màgica !!!
Which is the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc
A very nice place :)
Here's a short video for the fountain performance!
After the Magic Fountain we went for Spanish Dinner !!
Their famous dish is called the Tapas, which is these small small dishes.
They only eat rice once in a while with big families.
hahahah. It was a must-do thing to experience their night pub!
Too bad it was too late to experience their night club because their night clubs only start at 12am.
At least we had fun ourselves! :D
Muy Bien, Amigos, me gusta.!
and this is how our beds look like. hahha
So called 'provided breakfast'
Day 2, La Sagrada Familia
Its a project of Antoni Gaudí
And has been going on for 100+ years, and still counting .
You have to pay an entrance fee of how much i forgot. hahha
But its not expensive. A must-go in Barcelona.
It is known as the largest cathedral in the world.
Very artistic, the designs are based on the theme 'nature'
Which uses the ideas of trees and animals .
Spanish chocolate! hahah Kinder Sorpresa!
Look what I got ! Patrick Star!
After that, Casa Batlló
Also project of Gaudi's
You'd have to pay to visit the house. We didn't go in.
Aaahhhh, good food in Spain.
Seafood , not as great as asian seafood, but definitely a thirst quencher in western countries.
We had seafood everyday in Spain.
Our cholesterol all went up I'm sure.
Famous dish in Spain, called the Paella
Which is seafood fried rice.
It is said to be 99% sunny on websites so it is a must to bring shades !!!!
We enjoyed the food and also got to experience the beach in Spain!
Ice cream after the beach!!!
Right, ignore my noob face ok .
And also, everything will be written in like 3 languages, Spanish, Portuguese(I suppose) and also English.
Had late breakfast outside just to join the cultural dance !
This cultural dance is called La Sardana
People will gather in front of the La Seu Cathedral every Sunday around noon in Plaza Plà de la Seu
Short Videos to show the dance! its really easy!
the band playing music for the dance.
Super huge Vending Machine.
Old people playing ball games.
Day 3 - 流星花园
Famous project of Gaudi too!
and also the place where Meteor Garden 2 was shot.
Stall sellers also like chou kit type, RUNS LIKE HELL WHEN THE POLICE COMES.
Be careful when you're buying, you won't wan to purchase halfway and the stall starts to run.
So, basically my advice is to make up your mind what you wanna buy and make the purchase fast.
hahaha. Just in case they run away .
Look how sunny it is !!!!
Something very eye-catching . hahaha
We also went to visit the Spanish Village Barcelona
But the shops inside were closed around the time we went , which was evening.
You'd have to pay entrance fee too.
So do not go in after 6 or you'll just go into the village for nothing. NOONE WILL BE INSIDE. NOTHING TO SEE AT ALL
see what I mean ?
outside of our hostel.
A very cute store which sells candy.
DO NOT GET FOOLED BY THE NICE APPEARANCES OF THE CANDIES.
CHOOSE WISELY. RECOMMEND MARSH MELLOWS AND JELLY BEANS.
Very nice colours of boards! Too bad I didn't have the luggage capacity to buy!!!
tourist attraction too - La Boqueria Market
Didnt get to go in but beware.
A lot of thieves and pick pockets there, and also generally in Spain. haha
We got into contact with 2 pick pockets during the journey there. haha
Luckily nothing got stolen.
and black paella
do not get fooled.
It could be the worst candy you can ever have in your life. hahha a
Overall it was a really nice trip and I enjoyed it.
It is a place I would hope to re-visit again
Despite the pickpockets around.
I hope to learn a few spanish vulgar so I can scold them if I see any of them . hahahah a
Any volunteers teaching ? XD
I think the next post will be
Eastern Europe Trip!
hahahahaha Excited and getting bankrupt at the same time
Till then, ciaoz!
