Our super early flight from Vienna to Barcelona was good, no circumstances, and no delay. A perfect start. From the airport we took a train into the city. Luckily we arrived at the station, we thought was near to our hotel. All we had was a map. No navigation on our phones. After crossing the same streets for the 100th time and running around in circles we decided to take a taxi. We had luck ,it was relatively cheap. The first impression of our hotel was very good. Everything was modern and clean. The only negative aspect was the view - a wall. Nevertheless, we decided to explore the surroundings and get something to eat. After lunch, we bought our Sightseeing-bus-tickets (it’s called “Hop-on-hop-off”) and our city tour started.
First stop: Placa d’Espanya.
Next, we came to the harbour, where we found the shopping center “maremagnum” and inside: my heaven. We spotted a BEN& JERRY’s ice cream counter. It was amazing. We didn’t go into any shops. Instead, we continued strolling by the harbour and enjoyed the sea, the palm trees and the sun.
