Barça baby yeah!!!

In about 2 weeks I leave for 5 days glorious days of Barcelona!!! I LOVE Barcelona the shopping, the food, the people, the shopping, the beach, the shopping ;-) I just love the energy of the city. I always feel so relaxed when I'm there. I am definitely looking forward to this trip!!

Top 3 favorite places in Barça?

1. MI SA KO: Misako is a store that sells bags. And though the prices go up a bit each year (inflation I suppose), because they are not leather bags they are still VERY affordable. Last August I paid €28 euro's for this fabulous baby.

I always go to the store on what I think is Carrer Pi. So if you're not snobby about bags having to be designer, genuine leather or just plain expensive, be sure to pay them a visit when you're in town.

2. BAR LOBO: Ultra ultra ultra trendy restaurant/bar in the Raval district. Thankfully the food lives up to all the flashiness. One of my best friends said: "Best food ever outside of my mother's cooking." My friend in indonesian, this girl knows her food. Unfortunately they don't have their own website, just a page on the Grupo Tragaluz site, but Google them for more info, they're on what seems like every single Barcelona Hotspot list. They're situated on Carrer Pinto Fortuny close to the Ramblas. But be careful in the Ramblas/Raval area at night!

3. HOTEL AMISTER: I stayed at this hotel the first time I went to Barcelona in 2006 and just fell in love. Design interior, friendly staff, great value for money! They are situated on Av. Roma on the corner with Carrer Viladomat. It's a bit out the busy tourist area's like the Ramblas and Placa Real and about 15mins walk to the Passeig de Gracia.

For tapas, can't go to Barcelona and not have tapas, I prefer Barceloneta to the Ramblas/ Pl. Real area (not so good food and 'tourist' prices). Check out the many restaurants and bars on the Pg. Joan de Borbó. But steer clear of "El Rey de la Gamba" Brrrrr I get chills just thinking about the dirty glasses, cuttlery and finger nails of our waiter. Needless to say, we did not stay for a meal!

But anyway, Weeheeee! Barça baby yeah!! :-p
