Pablo Picasso once said, “There is where it all began… There is where I understood how far I could go.“ He was describing the beautiful city of Barcelona.
What I’m wearing:
Sirinda Black Bardot Frill Crop Top • Missguided // Joni Skinny Jeans • Topshop Moto // Chocker • Ebay // Leather Bag • Topshop Moscow Exclusive // Black & Gold Sandals • H&M
What to pack:
– PLENTY of SPF.
– A good camera.
– Spanish / English translator (although downloading an app might be much easier – SpanishPhraz has been very handy and it’s free from the App Store)
– Kimonos, dungarees, sunnies and bikinis might as well be all that you will need. Oh, and comfy shoes of course!
What to explore:
– Museums and art galleries. I highly recommend MACBA Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona.
– Authentic Spanish / Catalan tapas at Quimet i Quimet.
– Local neighbourhoods. Gràcia has been officially voted as the best neighbourhood in the city.
– Barceloneta. Taking an evening stroll down the central coast line is just a big yes!
– The traditional Spanish night. Flamenco & Knight Battle at the Castell Medieval ‘Comte de Valltordera’ in the village of Tordera (45 mins from Barcelona)
– The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc ‘Font màgica de Montjuïc‘ is a must-watch. Poble Espanyol Spanish Village is also located just round the corner, so if you get there early enough, it’s definitely worth exploring.
