...Seriously, 4 days in Barcelona just isn't enough. i could have stayed for weeks.
I spent a lot of time wandering through la ramblas just taking in the sights, sounds, smells of it all. there are great little shops, fab cafes and pubs lots of people watching and no shortage of entertainment.
My hostel was great, I stayed at "Kabul". The rooms were clean, and well maintained, the common area was lively, the beer was cheap and two free meals a day were servered - breakfast and dinner. Can't complain about that!! The location was fabulous, just steps away from La Ramblas.
The first day i was there, i wandered around the maze of streets surrounding La Ramblas - there is so much to take it.
Day two was sunny and warm so i decided to take advantage of the weather and head to the beach. with a long boardwarlk-type area to stroll down and lots of people around, it was a great way to spend the afternoon. The only negative point was the folk wandering up and down the beach selling cold drinks or offering massages. Don't get me wrong, it's great that they do that and i hope they make a living, but it seemed that there were more than necessary for the amount of people on the beach at the beginning of october.
Day three i decided to see camp nou! It was top of my list for barcelona and with the weather being not so great i figured that was as good a time as any to take it in.
My last day in Barcelona I knew what i had to do - i had to go to Montjuic.
It seems like that is my motto of the trip: I only wish i had more time.
I will be back Barcelona!!
