Barcelona, a four days trip in the heart of Catalunya

Hi Kiwis,

like i previously talked in the post of our autumn-break vacation  we did a one-week trip to Spain visiting the east coast. A tour of 460 km through the rough arid lands of south Europe, from maritime pines to palms and orange trees. It doesn’t seems a lot distance but on so less kilometers the landscape changed drastically.
The main reasons we choosed Spain was two. First of all we wanted to have a vacation in a warm place. Anyway but we didn’t want to have a touristic travel like mostly part do flying to Palma de Mallorca. Second of all, i am currently learning spanish so i wanted to practice the language.

Our tour started in Düsseldorf Weeze, we took a direct Ryanair flight (yes, because cheap is better!) to Girona Airport. We landed very late in the evening having a climate shock, a difference of around 16 degrees was unexpected! Exactly there in front was the bus station where to take our bus for Girona center.

I don’t have many things to tell about Girona because we just stayed one day but we visited anyway mostly part of it. This was the first travel I did not alone, my boyfriend was there and this was the first real travel-vacation for him. On this trip he mostly of the time followed my steps. I mean exactly run between one spot to the other, profiting 100% of the time we have in a place for discover as much as we can. My idea of vacation is not really what mostly part of people wish. My idea is far away from relax, lay on the beach 24 h on a day. I need action, to be active, to move, to do things all the time.

By the way on our first morning in Spain we walked through the streets of Girona, through the small boroughs of stones. It was a great sensation feel on the skin the sun after such a long time. I loved the walls of yellow shades and see the sun rise up protagonist of the spanish seasons.

barcelona

We are fan of Game of Thrones so it was not possible to leave Girona without before visit the Cathedral. So in this case i can better say a short walk through the streets of Braavos!

barcelona

Something i loved the most of Girona was to walk along the river Onyar looking the colorful houses and the people walk relaxed over the curved bridges. The sun shine against the water ripples and light up our eyes. I can’t hide it, hear the spanish people talk loud and screams warmly and friendly on the roads it have make me feel suddenly at home! I was also really surprised to find in the bed the double sheet! Every country in Europe have just one thick blanket, in Italy and Spain we use to have a thin sheet and a thick blanket. This was for me finally the week where i had the chance to sleep like a queen! 🙂

barcelona

Our travel anyway goes the day after further in direction Barcelona. We took a regional train that in less than an hour brought us to one of the biggest cities in Spain. As already told in the previeously post, we didn’t book any ticket before cause we wanted to be more free. These tickets we bought it to the train station of Girona half an hour before take our train!

barcelona

Welcome to Barcelona – BCN!

I even don’t know from where should i start so much things are to tell!
Our Barcelona time started on a sunday afternoon. We choosed to directly after have bring our backpacks to the hotel to plunge in the adventure. We booked a Hotel in Barcelona Sans, out of all touristic areas. The first thing we did was to take the underground in Plaça de Sants in direction Sagrada Familia.

barcelona

As already mentioned, we didn’t bought any Barcelona Card because we thought for our plans was not economically worthy. We thought to take a 72 hours “Hola BCN Card” and surprisingly was enough for see all what we wished!  I must avoid it, after spending some days in the city i can confirm that the undeground connections are great done! The underground system is well organized and easy to understand. You can find many indicative panels everywhere so no chance can’t mistake the direction you wanna take.

barcelona

We wished for our first evening to have a great dinner, so like a coherent people I didn’t pick any restaurant in the pdf list i created. 😀 I just took the decision letting me inspire from Tripadvisor, kinda have no clue where to go. We had really luck that day because we had dinner on a chic and lovely restaurant called “La Tere“. I find the waiters was really kind, friendly and really careful, I had felt like cuddled for a while. I don’t need to say anything else, the photos talks from itselves! The eating was simply divine! You can see here below the photo of a marinated tuna fish in sesam seeds.

barcelona

barcelona

There i took also my first (and last because then i was nearly drunk!) Sangria. I must say it, the flavour was not comparable to any other Sangria you can taste in any touristic places. You could taste the real fresh fruit juice in it, and a real good quality wine. La Tere is a fine quality restaurant, a little bit expensive but if you wanna have an amazing alternative dinner this is the perfect place!

The day after we took a real long walking tour! We walked in the morning on La Rambla, we reached a huge monument where was full of people! In that moment I felt to be in the wrong place at the wrong time! By the way, we walked further until reaching the port of Barcelona. We sitted there and spended couple hours relaxing and looking the seagulls fly (Steven follow us everywhere!).

barcelona

We profited of the place where we was to make a short visit to La Bouqueria market. I must be sincerely, this is also another too much touristic place, extremely full of people and there you couldn’t find things really particular and thypical. At the end I was even not much deceived about it because I expected me that. barcelona

We wanted to profite on the way back for stop us us to Chök, an amazing store of chocolate delicacies. We had a real moment of pleasure, it was not too much sweet, but it was an explosion of flavours. I am sure you are not stunned if I say you that we goes there twice in few days!!! 😀

barcelona

I don’t wanna reveal much more about it at the moment, but one whole day we spend it in San Boi de Llobregat. Yes, there I did something I wanted to do since many years. This is something that have change me in a sort of way. By the way don’t worry, i will talk about it in an extra post when the right time will come. 😀

I can just say that doing that I started the same evening to don’t feel good at all! The day after while going to Parc Güell I just started to faint every ten minutes. I didn’t stand on my feets and i didn’t know where i was. Seriously, I don’t remember me how i am return to the hotel (at the totally opposite side of Barcelona).

Result? 38,5 C° Fever and huge belly pain. This made me so sick, that i layed two days in bed without going out.

barcelona

We tried after this illness to profite of the last day in Barcelona for see all the things we had skip. We took a long nice walk and reach the Barrio Gotico, an amazing part of Barcelona (maybe the best). You have there the chance to plunge two centuries in the past and be for few minutes in another world.

barcelona

barcelona

We moved then again in direction La Rambla and we visited the Casa Battló. When we was there the first time we didn’t recognize where it was so much people standed in front! I just stayed there stunned by the amazing windows of this Gaudí masterpiece. It was just more stunning than in the books I ever studied!

barcelona

So my sweet kiwis, normally i wanted to tell much more in details but i realize is not possible. I wanna close the post in a Kiwi style, for who asks if we did itselves. The answer is: YES! We visited the Zoo Barcelona the second day we was there. Before fly to Spain I said to my boyfriend “we will not go to the Zoo because it tooks too much time! We will not get it and that this is not in the plan i did.” Clearly it was a bad joke! I brought him there without tell him, making him an unexpected surprise! When we was there in front he was happy like a kid at christmas while unpacking gifts, it was super cute to see his sparkling eyes! 🙂

We give so an happy ending of the Girona-Barcelona post, here it is come now out also the post about our last destination in Spain, Valencia, the ochre dream town.

Stay tuned, stay kiwi!
