September 2013. Vienna. 5 am.

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.

After an early breakfast , we hopped on our sightseeing bus and chose our route for the day. Firstly we drove by the La Pedrera and decided that we wanted to take a closer look. When we arrived we already saw the long line in front of the house. However, we still wanted to go in/up. After climbing up the 10293743 stairs, we were amazed by the great view over Barcelona. Take a look.

Not very far from La Pedrera we found cute litte cafés and restaurants. Our lunch at “Le pain quotidien was lovely.

Feeling vitalized again, our journey went on. Of course, we wanted to see the Park Güell. The architecture of this park is amazing. So colourful. Certainly, it is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Barcelona. There were so many people. Got a little bit exhausting while taking pictures but we tried our best. :)

In the evening, we decided to drive to the harbour again and have some diner. We had little ordination problems, so it was hard for us to find something that wasn’t too fancy and expensive. In the end we ate 
in a little restaurant by the main “shopping street”(if you can call it that) wasn’t the best, but it was ok.


Last day, so we wanted to make the most of it. We went to the PICASSO Museum, and guys..the line was 1000 times longer than in front of the Pedrera. We literally stand there for 2 hours. I’m the most impatient person, so maybe you can imagine how hard it was for me. After 2 hours, we finally made it inside the museum and strolled through the rooms and explored all the pictures.

we also visited la boqueria

I enjoyed our trip to Barcelona very much. We've had so much fun and we saw so many places of the city and I loved it. Have YOU ever been to this wonderful city? If yes, what did you love the most?  I would immediately go there again if I had the chance. <3
