It rained in Barcelona when I was there two months ago and it was a bit windy. By a bit, I mean my sunglasses would not stay on my face. One of my favorite memories of Barcelona is getting a breakfast at a little cafe (a croissant). On our beach day though, I convinced my dad and my sister to eat a healthy breakfast.
At a spot called Brunch and Cake. My cousin went there with her friends and I really wanted to try it out! It was so yummy! You can check out their menu right here. I had the blueberry yogurt granola bowl.
We visited Park Guell, where there is a gorgeous view overlooking the city, and let me tell you, even in the rain, Barcelona was still beautiful!
We kept to our hop on hop off bus pretty much all day that day, stopping at a few more shops along the way. The sun did come out to play on Saturday, the last full day that we were visiting, allowing us to warm up by the beach. It was a bit weird to wear my jacket to the beach, but there was nothing keeping me from the sea.
Vendors sell these tapestries all over the beach, and while they might be a little annoying you can definitely bargain a good price for them! I am in love with mine! The beach was so lovely, the only bad thing was the vendors trying to sell you mojitos, tapestries, henna tattoos and massages. every five minutes. We eventually moved away from the busy part of the beach where there weren’t any.
Before heading back to the hotel, we also stopped at La Pampa Steakhouse along one of the streets near the beach. The waiter was really nice and the food was amazing. It’s making me hungry just thinking about it!
While my time in Barcelona was amazing, I really hope that someday I get the chance to come back again, maybe in the summertime when It’s a bit warmer.
