I keep spamming you with summer pictures, don’t I? But I still have a lot of pictures to show you from Barcelona and some of my favourite spots to go to when you’re there! Thank me later.
Philona rooms: We didn’t stay in a hotel but rented an apartment for 5 days. The apartment was perfect and Phil was the best host we could ever wish for. And I fell in love with the balcony and its view. If you’re interested, more info right here.
Loria: Amazing tapas, but not the ordinary ‘chorizo-cheese-bread’ kinda tapas. Think prawns, gnocchi and a cheeseplate with gingerbread with anise. We ate here twice ’cause it was SO good. The interior is also pretty awesome! Roger de Llúria 35, Barcelona
Casa Batlló: One of the many casa’s from mister Gaudi but this one was the prettiest in my opinion. You could go all up to the roof where you had this amazing view over Barcelona. Passeig de Gràcia 43, Barcelona
Barceloneta beach: Probably the most touristic beach in Barcelona but a must visit. I loved wandering the big boulevard, the palmtrees and the relaxed vibe over there.
Eyescream and friends: Choose the flavor you want (I got the cheesecake) and pick your 2 favorite toppings. The (shaved) ice cream looks super cute, but also: delicious! So Eyescream and friends, if you read this, open a shop in Belgium pretty please! Paseo Joan de Borbo 30, Barcelona
Jai-ca: We also had lunch here twice. It’s a typical Spanish tapas bar, noisy when it’s crowded (mainly locals) but delicious. And they really have everything you want to eat. Oh, and try out the Bomba’s, too good! Carrer de Ginebra 13, Barcelona
Parc Guëll: A bit too touristic but definitely a must see with its colourful mosaics. And again: an amazing view over the city. Things like this always leave me speechless.
Bobby Gin: If you’re a gin lover like Hannes, this is the perfect place for you (he calls it ‘gin heaven’). They serve all kinds of crazy gin combinations. For example on the menu: gin with fresh basil, tomato, star anise or saffron. Carrer de Francisco Giner 47, Barcelona
Mercat de la Boqueria: What I really like about Barcelona are the big markets. The biggest is the Mercat de la Boqueria but we had a smaller one near our apartment and I might like that one even better. I just loved the atmosphere and the fresh food over there. Rambla 91, Barcelona
& Other Stories: Did a lot of shopping online already but couldn’t wait to visit the store in Barcelona. Not that impressed by the clothes (bought a dress though), but oh my the beauty products! Passeig de Gràcia 8-10, Barcelona
