A little while ago, I got an email from Holiday Gems asking me if I'd like to participate in a Blogger challenge, the price being a trip to Barcelona for 2, for 3 nights. The challenge is to create the perfect getaway, visiting small hidden places, discovering Barcelona in its less touristy way and so on! Since I have been to Barcelona only a couple of months ago and I loved it, I couldn't say no, so here's my entry!
As there are so many things to do, I decided to just write down anything that came to my mind that I would like to do while in the city. And by the way - this holiday is around the month of November, so that it's weather appropriate! (And yes, I've done some of those things in July already) When it comes to the person that I'd take with me on the trip, I'd take my friend Sarah with me, my faithful photographer for the blog and long-time friend!
Go to the MACBA museum - when I went there in summer, I really liked it, but unfortunately, half the exhibitions were closed due to renovations. This is quite a touristy thing to do but it's still on my must-do list! Going to the museum is also the perfect thing to do on a rainy day!
Last but not least: Eat Paella! - I never was a big fan of the Spanish rice dish, until I tried some real Paella in Barcelona! There's a variation for everyone, be it vegetarian, chicken or seafood Paella.
So these are the things that I would do on a 4 day trip to Barcelona. Of course, there are hundreds of more things that you could do, but I chose the ones that interest me the most! I didn't include any clubs, as the best way to find nice ones is to look for them when you're actually in the city, but I think I'd have enough to do during the day with these ideas!
