Highs & Lows
There are a lot of thing to do
The weather was cold
My family and I went on a trip to Barcelona and it went great!. We flew at the end of April but the weather was really cold, not windy, but cold so we decided to go to the place we rented in AirBnb. The apartment was ubicated In a little township called “El Prat De Llobregat” and It was just beautiful. Since It was too cold, the owner of the apartment let us use the heating, and I was really impressed because the heating system made the entire floor warm, they even had a towel warmer, and apparently that was something really common In the whole town!. However we wanted to get to know everything from Barcelona, so we started our day early to visit some places and then we went back to our apartment so we could get some sleep. Our apartment was actually really close to the metro station, and “El prat de Llobregat” itself was just 3 stations away from Barcelona’s downtown. Now talking about Barcelona itself, we visited all the touristic places like the Stadium, the Museums, “La sagrada Familia”, etc, and if I learnt something about Barcelona, is that the whole city it’s a work of art! So if you want to take a bus tour through the City, that is a great idea.
In terms of food, I didn't get the chance to try a typical dish, but as a funny fact, there were a lot of bakeries, everywhere you go you’ll see a bakery or a coffee house, so there’s always a nice place to grab a bite.
Everyday we had different plans so our stay in Barcelona was fun and entertained, and although the weather was really cold, I will always remember our trip to Barcelona as one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
That's a really good question, because I really enjoyed the trip, maybe I would have stayed a little longer
Anything go wrong during the trip?
No, everything was just the way we planned and I think even better
What tips would you give a friend?
Take a walk trough the city, don't use the metro and the renfe that much, the city is beautiful so it worth it
The beach was really cold, but off course you can take some summer clothes if you want to, it depends on when you're travelling
Yes, Barcelona is much more than just the Sagrada Familia and the museums, It has it own charm.
