Good morning guys! The two last days I have been doing a lot of tourists stuff with my parents here in Barcelona. It has been a lot of fun and I’m so glad that I went to these places, because these places is so beautiful I have no words! I’m a little nerd when it comes to old history in Europe I have to admit, haha! I love old architecture, it’s just something so unique about it!
Palau de la musica catalan
Palau de la musica is a concert hall in Barcelona designed by the architect Lluis Domènech i Montaner between 1904 and 1908. If you go to Barcelona you should visit this place. The whole building is so beautiful, with a lot of details. They still use this hall to have concerts, and it has been many of the biggest artists in history that has performed on this stage.
The Park Güell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill. This parc is so cozy and beautiful! It is a very green parc with some really cool architecture. Also you get a beutiful view over the city. Even if you don’t want to pay to enter, the area around the parc is so nice. The perfect place to just go for a walk, listening to birds and enjoying the view. Love this parc!
We also took a city tour bus. It was really nice. I do recommend you to take one tour too if you come here. I always like to take one of these city tour by bus when I visit big cities. It gives me a good overview of the city I feel. On this trip we did see some miraculous buildings.
I hope you all are had a great week, and yes, finally it’s Friday! Enjoy!
Hi guys! I hope you all are doing well. This night my head just wouldn’t fall asleep at all. The last time I took a look at the watch it was 5 am!! Anyways, I did get up 8.30 am to spend as much time as I could with my parents, who arrived yesterday. I’m so happy they are here so that I can get one week of quality time with them, yay! Only thing is that I have to go to work in the hospital at 15.00.. But we did had a great morning together. It started with a delicious breakfast at their Hotel. After that I showed them La Rambla, the big tourist street here in Barcelona, and we went all the way down to the beach. The weather has been absolutely perfect today. The sun is shining and I have been feeling energized (even with so few hours of sleep)! Before I had to go to work we went for a lunch at one of my favorite restaurants, Enkel. I had this delicious Buddha bowl and a detox green juice. That’s what I call a perfect lunch.
Well, now it’s 22.45 pm, and I will try to get some sleep (finger crossed). Have a good night.
As I mentioned on my last post, my boyfriend was on his way to visit me. I decided to not use any time blogging during his stay, just enjoying the moments and focusing on quality time with him. It has been one amazing week. During the week we stayed at a hotel in Barcelona. I had to go to work at the afternoon, but we tried to get as much as we could out of the mornings. We went shopping, eat at some great restaurants and just enjoyed the city.
For the weekend we decided to go to a little place one hour from Barcelona, called Costa Brava. It’s a beautiful cozy little place. it was so nice to get out of the city for a bit. Less people and more quiet. The beach was really nice, just very wavy, haha. I got thrown off a big wave and ended up loosing my sunglasses that I have had for many years. Would have been fun to have photo of that, but I don’t. Sorry! But we enjoyed it a lot.
The only thing I didn’t like so much about Costa Brava, was that is was more or less the same menu at all the restaurants. We couldn’t find anything else other than pasta, pizza, paella and some meat.
But all in all it has been an amazing week, I’m really grateful that I got to spend this time with the person I love during my stay in Barcelona.
I hope you all are fine. I wish you a super start on your new week!
Hey guys! 🙂
Hope you all had a great weekend with a lots of fun! My weekend has been pretty good. My best friend are flying back tonight, so her last weekend has been spent mostly at the beach.
We have also been enjoying some amazing food, as the Acai bowl at the Surfhouse, that is a restaurant next to the beach. I have been there two times now, and it’s really good! If you ever go to Barcelona, you should give it a try.
We haven’t just been lazy, we have also been at the gym Saturday morning. That is the best way to start the day if you ask me. Something with the energy you get after a great session, don’t you agree?
Right now we are soon going out to have our last dinner together, and Ingvild’s brother that happened to be in Barcelona the same time is joining too.
Even tough Ingvild is leaving tonight doesn’t mean I gonna be left with no visitors. Tomorrow my love is coming to spend one week with me. I’m so excited for that, I miss him way too much!
One thing I love when living in bigger cities like Barcelona, is that it is always something new to see or do. Yesterday it wasn’t super shiny, so my friend Ingvild and I decided to switch out the beach for a park. Parc de la Ciutadella is a idyllic and very green oasis. It has a cozy little lake in the middle were you can rent a little rowing boat if you like. Full of birds singing in the trees. Basically it’s the perfect place to go for a walk, a run, to enjoy a picnic or just sit down and relax as we did. For the occasion I used my new flower dress that I found at HM last week. I find this dress to be a perfect dress for fall because of the color of it, and it’s also a dress that can easily be dressed up or down.
Find the dress here.
After a while we discovered that it was a food festival going on at one part of the park. Of course we had to check that out, it’s food and we are for sure big foodies, haha! The area was full of small cute vans that sold all type of food. We went for a vegetarian burger, that by the way tasted amazing! This food festival was a part of the La Merce festival that is the biggest festival here in Barcelona. These days people have been dancing in the streets, playing music and celebrating. It’s crazy but fun.
Have a beautiful day people.
At the 20th of September, I turned 29 years old. Can’t believe that next year I’m leaving the twenties and enter the thirties! But honestly I don’t stress about my age, is just a number, right? If you ask me, age is all about your mindset.
I started my birthday at school and the rest of the day my best friend plan out for us. We went to a restaurant next to the beach, with the most beautiful view! We had a tasty vegetarian fig and feat cheese salad and of course some vino. The evening was well spent at the beach with some bubbles, before we ended the night at a Vegan friendly restaurant. Here in Barcelona it’s so easy to live plant based, the options is endless. I will make a vegan guide for you guys from Barcelona.
Have a great weekend people!
Hola from Barcelona!
I can’t believe this city, it’s simply amazing. Some days ago my best friend from Norway came to visit me, so we have had great time turisting in the city. If only I could describe Barcelona with two words, it would be alive & cultural. It basically have all you want and need!
Yesterday we met two friends for lunch at the Surfhouse restaurant. Wow, the best Acai bowl I’ve ever had. Great place if your vegan or vegetarian or just want to stay healthy (PS: its’s located next to the beach, so you also get a great view). Later my friend and I took a walk at the promonade, enjoyed a glass of wine next to the beach and absorbed the vitamin D from the sun. That’s what I call a great day.
Wish I could share the sun with all you back home in Norway that has probarbly forgot what the sun felt like!
