Here in the first part of the actually very short “Barcelona Diary” which contains of only two parts (Yes, only two parts, I seriously needed some real holidays and dragging a camera set weighing about 5 kilos or even more around for hours doesn’t feel that much like holiday). So let’s start with the first little story… these post is about the adventures we experienced in the wonderful city of barcelona while the next post will be more about the hotel itself… but you will see detailed early enough.

So these pictures were taken during our first day after our arrival at our fab hotel. As our stay was only planed for five days there was not much time to explore a big city with a whole heap of sights which Barcelona truly has, so while walking straight in direction to the city center, I spotted one of these typical touristic sightseeing buses. I must admit that I always wondered while people are discovering cities in such a touristic way rather then by theirselves. But for some reason I had the spontaneous idea to hop on one of these buses. At the end I must say it was the best what could happen to us, in only one day we have seen all the places of interest which I or my boyfriend wanted to see during our trip. It’s seriously the perfect way if you don’t have a lot of time but still want to see a lot of things.

As mentioned, I was to lazy to capture everything in photos, but in this post you will find pictures of two sights which I can only recommend to visit while in Barcelona: Sagrada Famiglia (Church of Holy Family) and Parc Güell. Both are created by the well known and very talented architect Antoni Gaudi. In the whole city of Barcelona you can spot his outstanding architecture. One of them is the most beautiful and somehow impressive (not as impressive as the Sagrada of course) buildings he brough into being is the Casa Batllóunfortunately I didn’t took any photos as I simply had the wrong lens with me. But you can google it if interested.

So see you in a few days for the second part of our adventure.
