A hidden courtyard behind Barcelona Cathedral
The Magic Fountain Light Show
The champagneria is a magical place where Cava, the Spanish version of champagne, is served for only 2 euro a glass and tapas are no more than 3 euro each. I HIGHLY recommend stopping by this gem of a place!
I was also lucky enough to go to my Spanish friend Iris' hometown, Blanes, to meet her family and do some sight seeing. It was absolutely STUNNING!
Barcelona is an absolutely beautiful city, and it would be a shame for anyone who is visiting Europe to miss it. The winding lanes and pretty plazas transported me to the fairytale lands I used to create in my mind as a child. It was so surreal getting to see a place that I've always dreamed of going to.
The only negative experience I had while there was being robbed. One night after going dancing the girls and I went on the beach to enjoy the pretty views. I set my hand bag down beside my feet on top of my shoes and looked away for a minute. The next thing I knew, it was gone. Luckily I had only taken out a clutch so I didn't loose my passport or my whole wallet. My advice to you? Don't put your handbag/personal belongings down for anything. That goes for everywhere you're traveling, but just be especially careful in Barcelona! Happy Travels :)
