Thursdays are all about memories. So I am throwing it right back to when I visited the beautiful city of Barcelona in 2012. I always wanted to explore Spain, so when I had the opportunity to visit Barcelona, I was super thrilled. Barcelona is such a beautiful city with so much history and a rich culture. It is definitely a city I would like to visit again with the kids in tow this time.
Visiting Spain was a dream come true. It was on my bucket list for years so making it happen was so cool. The trip happened pre kids and pre blogging, so I never really blogged about the trip. Which is why you are reading this travel blog post now.
The trip to Barcelona happened in my young and free days. I was determined to see as much of the world as I could see before starting a family and it happened. I did get to see quite a few cities. Now that the twins are older, I have slowly gotten back into travelling and I can’t wait to see some more cities.
I have a few cities I plan on seeing in the next couple of months. Some Spanish locations are high on my travel list and I am looking forward to ticking them all off as done. I am yet to visit any of the Spanish islands so they are definitely on my travel bucket list. One island I need to visit is Tenerife. It is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands and I have heard amazing things about the Island. I have been looking online for Cheap Tenerife Holidays 2018/2019 and I have found some very good deals. Hoping to make that happen one day.
My Visit to Barcelona
Back to my visit to Barcelona many moons ago. We stayed at NH Hotel Cornellá for 3 nights. It was a lovely hotel with good customer service. I remember it was right in front of a Chinese restaurant that came in very handy.
The trip was fun. We visited a lot of tourist attractions – Barcelona Stadium, Seafood Market, Shopping malls and more. We hopped on the Red Bus Tour, which took us all over the city with running commentary. It was a lovely bus ride and we had a good time exploring the beautiful city and soaking in the culture. We even got on their own version of London Eye.
Have you visited Barcelona? What did you think of the city?
