24 hours in Barcelona, it’s too short
Hello Frappées !
I come back to you with a short Barcelona getaway. After an inaugural cruise on the Harmony of the Seas, the biggest sealiner in the world (find out more here) we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to stretch our holiday by 24 hours to visit the city. It would have been a shame to only see the harbor, right ? =D I traveled with my pals Julien & Laura & Linda.

We left the boat early to get to the city of Barcelona and from there, we started a race against time to make the most out of those 24 hours. We rented bicycles, since we had no time to figure out public transportation. It allowed us to stop whenever and wherever we felt like it.
Our program :
► The Boqueria market, which is a must-go for foodistas like us.. Perfect for improvising a meal filled with local flavors. If we lived there, I would mostly shop there.
► The flowery Güell Park.. We got there without a reservation and had to wait 4 hours for tickets. Make sure you book online first, especially during national holidays.
► Tasting pastry and wandering along the little streets of Barcelona with their green lush balconies.
►Straying from the main roads and stumbling upon great secret spots.
►Having paëlla with a view on the ocean.
►Chilling at the beach and spending a night of mojitos and laughter at the bar.
►Getting breakfast and easily capturing it in our lovely WaytoStay* appartment.
►Saying farewell to gorgeous Barcelona and dying to come back ♥
