Three whole days in Barcelona, Spain
My friend Lisa and I chose to stay at the hotel Room Mate Gerard. Our room has a beautiful balcony, I actually can’t imagine a lovelier place to stay.
After dropping our bags off at the hotel we took full advantage of our time in Barcelona and started exploring straight away.
We stumbled upon a lovely Vietnamese restaurant ‘La Vietnamita’ during our day time wanderings and headed there for a great dinner that evening. I would say this is a must visit when in Barcelona.
Leaving our hotel in search of a delicious breakfast we weren’t disappointed with our find. At Café Petit Pot on Plaça d’Urquinaona, 4, I enjoyed perhaps one of the best breakfasts I have ever had in my life.
The Colombian patacones (yummy fried plantain or green bananas) were particularly delicious. After trying them for the first time, I now want them for breakfast everyday. Quite some claim to fame for Café Petit Pot.
After a wonderful first day, we headed off to Carrer de rec 26 and went back to a beautiful flower stall, Almond Flower Bar, which we first visited on Sunday.
The super sweet sales guy who remembered us from Sunday gave me this beautiful bouquet of flowers upon our return.
Now is that customer service or what?
Whereas every traveller in Barcelona knows the legendary Parc Güell by Gaudí, there are also other amazing parks in the city. We made it our mission to seek these out. We headed to Labyrinth Park in Horta, Northern part of Barcelona.
The beautiful park is not so well known among the tourists but it is definitely worth a visit. Even though the location is a bit further away, it is easy to get there by metro. Just get on the L3 line and get off at Mundet stop. It’s about a 5 minute walk from the metro station to the park.
The park itself is stunning and full of mazes, as its labyrinth name suggests. You can spend hours here getting lost amongst the bushes.
