Barcelona Travel Blog› entry 1 of 1 › view all entries
Ok, well basically the decision to go to Barcelona was made simply because i was bored at work one day and found some cheap flights on ryan air from Shannon to Girona....worked out at about €55 euros return which was brilliant ! ... flights were booked for nov 14th-nov18th...didnt book the accomodation until about a week before and came to about €200 each for the 2 of us. All in all pretty cheap for a city break !
Flight to Girona was one of the ones at like half 7 in the morning so we were at the airport at 5 pretty much comotose as had been up packing till about 3 that mornin (My attempts at travelling light were in vain!) .
That day we decided to look around the local area and of course all the surrounding shops too ! OMG the sephora there is AMAZING...i could literally have spent hours in there looking at all the makeup and hair stuff! If only i had the money to buy it all !! Didnt get up to much else that day except for wander around a few of the shops before heading back to the apt and deciding on our plans for the next few days !
Got up quite late that day (at about 1 or so i think !).
One really cool place we found was this tiny little chocolate shop just off the ramblas which literally had me drooling like a puppy thru the window ! we were given some free samples and OMG, total yum ! Also went to La Boqeuira ( the big food market on the ramblas) totally amazing! I loved all the sweet stalls ! so colourful and pretty !! Definitely recommend going to this marketplace !
That night we met up with some friends in an irish bar on Placa Uriquiona(somethin like that).
Got up early with pretty sick heads on us and headed to see the Gaudi church place...was good to see in a sense but not really my idea of fun ! later that day we had planned on going to the imax theatre for a laugh but when we got down there we discovered a whole other shopping centre so needless to say we kinda got distracted !
Our last full day in Barcelona and seeing as our finances were pretty much gone we decided a bit of sightseeing was probably our best bet.
That nite we went to the city hall place again and had loads of drunk conversations with loads of randomers.
One thing i would say though at nite, especially when uve had a few is to keep hold of your bag, money etc ! when we were walking home that night the ramblas was a bit dodge with a lot of prostitutes out and im pretty sure one tried to pickpocket me (pockets were empty so ws ok but still !)
LAST DAY !
Last day we had to be outta the apt by noon.
All in all our trip to Barca was Great ! bought some really great clothes ( including a dress form morgan which i LOVE) . Definitely wud go back there again !:)
