Barça and the Moccha...

As promised some pics from my trip to Barcelona. We stayed at Fashion House, a lovely B&B on Carrer Bruc. In a beautiful building with original high ceilings and a lovely private terrace, where weather permitted, breakfast is served. The rooms were basic, but very clean and neat. Downside is, during the week there 's an afternoon gymnastics class on floor above, so an afternoon siesta is out of the question.

I've been to Barcelona quite a few times before, but this was the BF's first time so we visited all the usual tourist spots.

A "must see" in Barcelona is La Boqueria. I really like it. It's basically a market with lots fresh foods, meats, fish, fruit etc. The only "down side" is that it's just off the very touristy Rambla area, but since we were doing a bit of sight seeing anyways... we went to La Boqueria. We strolled around for a bit, the BF taking photo's of all the food stalls...

... and I eating all the food. :-) btw, this falafel really lived up to it's name. It was sooooo good!

Here's the BF being very artistic with his reflection...

... and me, making a new friend. (Can you spot the Chloé Tamaris?)

This wasn't the usual shopping trip I do with my girlfriends. The BF and I basically went to get away together for a bit and get some r&r. Which we did get for the most part, with the exception for a very unsuccessful morning excursion to the Disney Store. I was on the hunt for the "Fairest of them all" necklace, which they did not have. :-( We walked for what felt like the full length of the Avenida Diagonal to get to the store, only to find out that they didn't carry the jewellery line, just toys and other useless knick-knacks. The very word Diagonal still sends the BF into howls of sheer terror. Hahaha... We did however end that day well; from the Disney Store we took a taxi (we couldn't walk another step) straight to the beach, where we sipped rosé and ate tapas till sundown. Let's just say: all's well that ends well. We really enjoyed ourselves on this trip.
