Barcelona Picture Diary!

This post is so over-due it's embarrassing! So a couple weeks ago I mosied on over to Barthelonaaaaaa! It was a pretty intense seven days that literally changed my whole life but that'll be another post *pre-meditated click bait* ;) Yes, it was a great seven days of carefree living with several helpings of sangria and seafood!
Before travelling I had it all planned out that I'll be eating out everyday and visiting not-so touristy galleries and being that lame but really not lame "I want the real experience" gal. But I feel, unless you know a local (which I didn't) or lived there (which I don't) you can't do that. (If you have well done)

  Anyways, as I was saying - I wanted to see 1 years worth of Barcelona in 7 days (lol) and planned on writing this amazing 10 things you must do in Barcelona post... buuuuuut because all I did was touristing & off-sonar, I can't and I won't. Instead, you're going to get a photo diary! I took way too many so I'm posting a selected few.

We were so lucky to have a rooftop pool, as expected we spent majority of our time sunbathing, drinking sangria and swimming. If you're travelling in a large group of friends I highly recommend Apartmentos Aura Park, there's a lidl right round the corner that stocks €1 sangria that is initially disgusting but grow on you.

The cathedral looked phenomenal, unfortunately so was the queue & we didn't book tickets lol. If you want to see the inside, be sure to pre-book your tickets! I'm not that butt-hurt about not seeing the inside because I've promised myself I'll see it once its complete. So if I'm still alive, Sagrada Familia, I'll see you in 2026.

So all the pictures I took of the church were ruined by the construction work going on around it but I managed to take a mum style selfie that wasn't half bad! Tbh my fabulous sunglasses are contributing a lot to this picture!

Sadly, my post has come to an end! Luckily I will be visiting Barcelona again in October, I wont promise a must do blog post but I'm hoping to do some food reviews because apart from the views, the best thing about Barcelona is most definitely the food. 

Thank you for reading my post & see you soon!
