29th June 2016 I’d been waiting for this day for such a long time, put in so many hours waitressing and bar work with two jobs and saved all my money ready for this perfect experience and taste of Interailing.
Setting off with my partner my best friend I was so ready to explore the world with him by my side the excitement bursting out of me. Pure joy and happiness written all over my face catching our flight together to step off that plane into the beautiful Spanish sunshine. Every little inch of this journey I had planned so smoothly hours of searching for beautiful accommodation with my man.
Barcelona a city full of life and busy colour. We arrived at Hotel Lleó around the corner from the bustling rambles. The room was outstanding gigantic comfy king size bed. Huge bathroom with an amazing large shower which we made the most of.
We lay on the top floor soaking in the sun drinking little cans of estrella. Perfect start to the trip dipping in that roof top pool I felt ontop of the world.
Walking down the rambles we stopped for tapas tiny little burgers and nibbles not great for our gutsy appities but fun. A man was serenading people with his violin and came Over to play for us it was quite amusingly awkward
We sunbathed on the busy beach listening to the little men shout pina colada, mojito my friend 😂. We took a long walk down the beach which went on for miles with lots of people having fun.
We had a tour around camp nou stadium jack was in his element.
We took a cable car to the top of the mountain the views were stunning but we were quite surprised to find nothing once we got to the top apart from a big que to come down. My partner complained 😂 but I still enjoyed each moment.
I even watched wales play football in a bar on the beachfront there was a great atmosphere.
one afternoon we walked ages to the train station to secure our spaces to move onto our next destination which was Nice a 9 hours train ride away.
Barcelona zoo was pretty poor I love animals and I found this zoo quite upsetting with the dolphins there to perform.
Leaving the city seeing so much being so busy and ready to explore we dragged our little cases a long way to the train station me with my multi coloured straw hat and my squishy cushion under the other.
