Barcelona, I love you!!

After five brilliant days in Barcelona with the boyfriend we arrived home on Sunday. The weather was great while we were there maybe a bit too warm at times. I'm not going to complain though as it was a much better change from the doom and gloom of Dublin.

We squeezed in visiting famous tourist attractions as well as doing a spot of shopping (coming up in a separate post). Our hotel, Ciutat del Prat was beautiful, it was a short metro ride away from Passeig de Gracia (major avenue and shopping area) and La Rambla. I went to Sagrada Familia and Casa Batllo, two of Gaudi's designs. The architecture of the buildings are amazing and like nothing I've ever seen before. I could see why everyone loves this City.

I had such an amazing time in Barcelona. I would go back in a heartbeat and it's a place I'd recommend to anyone to visit. I found the people so friendly and helpful. Your almost guaranteed fabulous weather too. I only wore makeup once when I was over there as it was so humid. At night, I hardly came home with makeup on my face anyway.

The only downside of my holiday was getting tonnes of insect bite. I didn't notice how bad they were until I got home. After sitting in pain for a day, I ventured down to the doctor only to be told that I had an reaction to the bites! Boo!! Now I'm on a few different antibiotics so hopefully I'm on the mend.

Here are a few photos of my holiday....
