It’s time. The moment you’ve all been waiting for, or at least I was in the destination line up….BARCELONA!!! I think that this was the place I was most excited to visit. I had been here before on another cruise but that was about six years ago and we only really got to see the football stadium (yay…) and a little bit of las ramblas, los rambles, whatever it’s called.
As with Valencia, Royal Caribbean put on their own transport to get you from the boat to the port entrance but don’t get it! The port themselves have their own bus and it’s half the price of the other bus (€3 return, €2 single), plus they’re really frequent.
We decided on getting the open top bus around the city as it’s a great way to see everything in a relatively short amount of time. My main wish for the day was to see the Gaudi park and to do that we had to get two different coloured bus routes which was a bit of a pain but it did mean that we got to see different areas of the city like the gothic area where the stunning church is and the olympic area which was also pretty cool.
Park Guell was absolutely my favourite bit as the sun came out and everything was so beautiful and there were cute little parrots and arggg!!!! If you’re in Barcelona I’d definitely recommend going to a any of the little bars and cafes off Las Ramblas (and there are plenty to choose from) because they are much cheaper than off the actual strip but are so cute! I had such an amazingly delicious cheesecake and churros, oh the churros. I also had my very first Kiko experience in these backstreets which was amazing and I may have gotten more excited than I should have…oops. To finish I’ll leave you with all of these pictures, have fun scrolling!
