Beautiful Barcelona

I am a massive fan of the weekend away as it allows you to see the beauty of another country without using up too much annual leave.

And this Spring I booked a little trip to Barcelona as I have a friend who now runs his business from there, and I wanted to visit him.

I went to Barcelona for the first time when I was fifteen on a school trip with my textiles and sewing class; a trip designed to make us think about the composition for our final pieces, how we would make the patterns move and what we would design when it came to the exams.

We visited all the Gaudi works and watched the flow and colour to see if it gave us inspiration, and the class came home and produced some of the most beautiful textile pieces ever. It was a huge success.

So going back was something that I really wanted to do, and I wasnt disappointed.

I got there on the thursday and my friend had to work so I amused myself with doing the touristy thing and pottering around all the sites.

The Sagrada Familia is one of my favourite places, and so I poodled about there a bit by myself before meeting my friend and going to spend the evening in some bars, dining on fantastic little tapas and dancing the night away.

All in all it was a fantastic trip made all the better for seeing my friend, but a place that I would strongly recommend going.

  2. Love Barcelona! I’ve been there twice myself! My favorite breakfast is right by the Arch at this tiny cafe that served little croissants with ham and cheese, I have never had one quite as good!

  3. Barcelona is a beautiful city :) I can’t believe you managed to get a photo of the lizard thing in the Gaudi park without tourists all around it – when I went there a few years ago it was absolutely swamped with people!

  11. Barcelona is one of my favourite cities in Europe. Ever tried the sailing lessons off Port Olympic? Only 30 euros for 2 hours and you get taught how to sail plus free champagne for passing basic skills! I was very tanned by the end of it and smiling throughout the day! :)
