Just close your eyes and let’s pretend we’re dancing in the street in Barcelona.
Barcelona was by far my favorite part of this trip. London was good, Paris was all right, but Barcelona took my breath a way. Well, the four days that I was there, anyway. Would I “accidentally” lose my passport there and never return if I had the chance?
Arriving to Barcelona was so easy. I hopped on a flight from Paris to BCN, took a little nap and woke up to the coast of the Barceloneta Beach. Finding somewhere to check in my luggage until 6 when my Airbnb host was returning from work was another story. Regardless, I found a place to turn in my Away luggage and went straight to La Rambla for brunch.
MERCAT DE LA BOQUERIA, LA RAMBLA
La Boqueria was my I made it place. This was where I said to myself, “Well, it wouldn’t be absolutely terrible if I ‘accidentally’ lost my passport in Barcelona.” The hustle and bustle of the tourists filling the market what chaotic, but it was something we don’t really have back home. I was taking it all in.
From fresh seafood and fruit to the DIY charcuterie board right in front of your face, La Boqueria has it all. There are even restaurants to enjoy tapas! They may be slightly pricey, though.
PLAÇA DE GAUDÍ
Feat. v cute Spanish man and my reflection (hi).
La Sagrada Familia
La Sagrada Familia clearly speaks for itself. Gaudí was a genius when he designed this magnificent cathedral, which of course is still under construction, but its estimated completion will be in 2023 (yeah.. right).
PLATJA DE LA BARCELONETA
One of my favorite parts of this trip was being able to go to the beach whenever and just relax with some tunes on my friend’s JBL speaker. We don’t have beaches in Vegas so I couldn’t help but spend two half-days at La Platja. I even went to the extent of grabbing snacks from La Boqueria on La Rambla and bringing them in my tote to the beach. I definitely recommend plenty of cervezas and tapas while you sitting on the beach!
Is this an ad for Estrella? No, but it should be…
JARDINS DE MARIA CALLAS
If you’re into some pretty bougie tapas, El Nacional is the place to be! It’s looks like a quiet hole in the wall, but at night this place is alive! The building used to be a factory, but it is now converted into multiple tiny restaurants of all kinds centering the bar in the middle.

ARC DE TRIOMF
Barcelona is so full of love and life. There is music everywhere and the people are so incredibly friendly. Although my trip here was short, I am looking forward to the day I can return to dance in the street in Barcelona.
Until next time,
