So arriving from Italy on my cruise at around 730pm Wednesday evening I jumped a cab to the address Tiffany had provided for our hotel. I arrived to find the Santa Marta pub, not the Santa Marta hotel. Some quick but expensive googling and I found the correct address for the hotel which was about a 15min walk away. I found the hotel, had a clean up (2 days in the same clothes wasn't the fun bit of the cruise) and we headed down to the beach front to find something to eat and have a few quiet drinks. Most dangerous saying in history is a few quiet drinks but I'll get to that. We had a feed (funnily enough at the Santa Marta pub I had accidentally gone to earlier) and some local sangria
Needless to say we slept in a little on Thursday morning but managed to surface before lunch to a beautiful day in Barcelona. After an unsuccessful shopping to La Rambla we headed back for the waterfront for a cold drink and some shade to escape the Barcelona heat. We found a great place right on the beach where we enjoyed a beer, and another few and before you knew it we had had dinner there and spent near on 5 hours talking shit and taking in the breathtaking views of the barcelona beach. Not a particularly productive day but a fantastic holiday day if you ask me. An early night ahead of Sonar was also achieved whether by accident or not.
Friday came and again wasn't the earliest start however with the night we had ahead we needed to rest up
My day today has been very mundane with a few photos taken and some laundry done. Tiff flew home to London this morning and I am getting prepared for my more culture experience starting a 4 day, 3 night tour of Catalonia on Tuesday morning.
Barcelona delivered everything I wanted and more, even if I am left feeling slightly beaten and bruised. A beautiful, colourful and crazy place :) would never leave it off a Spanish itinerary.
Couldn't get the videos to work on here so will post them on Facebook.
I thought this one was appropriate seeing tiff was with me in Barcelona :p
