I have booked this flight in December, and it is the
Christmas gift I did to my self and my husband.
I have always wanted to visit Barcelona, and I believe that this is the perfect timing.
The reason is that I have taken up some SPANISH
Lessons, and I am almost finishing the Elementary stage.
I am excited, and anxious to visit Barcelona, and see what I can do with my Spanish !!
Our hotel is centrally located and it is just in front of a Metro Stop
Statue, and LA RAMBLAS avenue is another 5 minute walk as well.
What I want to see besides tasting a dish of PAELIA, is to watch a FLAMENGO SHOW. After a good search on the internet (as always) we booked at CORDOBES, which is supposed to be one of the best shows.
I believe that it is better to eat something outside and just go there for the show. This is what we did because I saw people having dinner in a rush. I was up there in the dining room - which is a small open space indoors, and I saw people eating, but in a few minutes the show would start!! The inside decoration is great, and is a family run business. The dancers and singers are relatives.
We left with a morning flight on Sunday, and returned on Thursday late in the afternoon. It is plenty of time to see the most famous spots, do some shopping and taste TAPAS, and PAELIA.
Tthe weather was good and we enjoyed pleasant strolls. We did the sightseeing tour, - we had tickets for 2 days - and then we could move around on foot to the different spots we wanted to visit.
The photos I have taken which are many, are from the Centre, the Port, the Castle and the Teleferic, Barrio gotico, the OLYMPIC stadium, Poble Espanyol , and many other interesting spots.
I am looking forward for the next trip coming soon to Madrid and Toledo.
