Hi! Welcome to my barcelona diary, i’ll wright about what i did the 4th day of my trip, and a little of the days following.
Today we got a chance to visit Casa Mila, another one of Gaudi’s creations. This tour was very different from the other house, and although i preffered the other one more, this house was yet again really beautiful!
After Casa Mila we went to have lunch at Flax & Kale, such a nice hotspot! Definetely a recommendation! Flax & Kale sell’s juices from Teresas juicery, (which very much reminded me of the pressed juicery ones. (you see them everywhere on tumblr) which i bought in America last year. And also gluten free, organic and vegeterian (they do have fish) food. Really nice!
After lunch we wondered around the narrow streets behind La Ramblas, and gave a visit to Casa Guell, my dad just wanted to stop by to take a photo, but when we saw there was no line ( wich is truly rare, be prepared, haha). we decided, why not give this place a visit aswel. Casa Guell is yet again designed by Gaudi, so we kinda had a Gaudi tour 2.0 today. Lot’s of architecture! All the houses are very different, and it was nice to see this one, beautiful again. though i wouldn’t necceserly recommened it, since this house was my least favourite of all the Gaudi stuff i’ve seen these past days.
We went to have a drink on the Placa Reial i really love this place, the houses and palmtrees are so lovely, i can sit here for ages! It’s practically surrounded by restaurants, so where you go doesn’t make a huge difference, especially not if you, like us, just come to sit and have a drink. We had one at ‘Ocaña’ since this place looked the most appealing to me. I liked the bold letters.
We had dinner at Bar Lobo, i found this place on pinterest, and had planned it for a lunchspot for the next day, but on friday we would be going to Montserrat, and we weren’t sure if we would make it. So we just had dinner here! It isn’t a very local dinner place, since it closes at 10pm, but they had some amazing tapas! The second best i had so far (Bar del pla, day 1 was my fave). I can recommend you the tuna with quacomole, fried eggplants with honey and the fried asperges. Really special and really good!
That was all for my official last day in the city barcelona itself, at day 5 we rent a car and drove to Montesserat, spend the day hiking and looking around.
The following days, (i went 9days) we drove through cities and villages close to Barcelona, for exemple we went to Andorra (tax free shopping) and Vic (really lovely city) but in general just exploring the surroundings. Here you’ll have a few photo’s about these last days.
( best ice cream ever, dark chocolate orange, can we have dark chocolate in holland aswell, please?)
I didn’t wanted to get into detail to much, since I am a little behind time schedule and cause I am currently in Curaçao, i’ll wright about this soon aswell! I hope you enjoyed this little serie, or maybe got a bit of inspiration out of it.
Thanks for reading, and i’ll get back to you soon!
