Barcelona Day 1 // Strolling around the city 

  
Our day started at 3:30am which is beyond early, so we had to ofcourse do the Starbucks run. 

We had landed in Barcelona by 9:30am local time so it was a very quick flight, but there was loads of turbulence which wasn’t fun. When we arrived we got a taxi from the airport which was only € 30 straight to our hotel. This was my second time in Barcelona so I had already picked out the hotel I wanted to stay in this time. Hotel Lloret Ramblas is right on the Ramblas and is the prime location for everything! There are so many taxis and shops and eating places. We dropped our bags and headed out for the day to get our bearings and have a wander around. 

  We went to a litre restaurant next to our hotel which was empty, the man told us he had no breakfast menus but recommend the pancakes. We were so shocked when they arrived, this is without a doubt the best pancakes I have ever had!  

   

   Walking down the Ramblas we found the Bouqeria Market and I picked up some macaroons. Everything in this marker is pretty cool, from fish to marzipan to sweets to smoothies.  

  We walked down the Ramlas and ended up at the Port and the Shopping centre and had a look around there. By this time my feet were killing (wearing heeled boots was not a good idea). 

  

  Then we strolled down the palm tree avenue which was so lovely and took loads of photo. On the way back to the hotel we stopped of at the market again to get some chocolate covered strawberries for €2.  

   We then took a little detour into Hard Rock Cafe and had a drink. I had the blue drink which is my favourite drink of all time. We then went back to the hotel and got showered and dressed for dinner. We went back to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner, and had a lovely dinner!  

  We did the typical tourist thing and didn’t check whether the Magic Fountain was working, so when we got there we found out it wasn’t. But as we walked up to the top where the beautiful building is a lot of people were hanging around. So we waited around until the supposed start time of the fountain show but it never came on. Even when we walked down pass the fountain there were crowds of people, but no water in the fountain.  

  Our final stop of the night was this shopping centre down the road from the Fountain where we got ice cream and found a Lush so I could have a bath.
