SPAIN: Trip to Sunny Barcelona
Vacay mood on! It was time to give back to myself and book a flight to Sunny Barcelona!
I planned this trip with my Twin sister Tiia Camilla a few months ago to have a one week holiday with her.
As you may know, my life is lots of travels, but this time it felt different to pack my Samsonite cabin luggage full of beachwear and holiday clothes. I already got the mood I'm going off to vacay to chill and enjoy the company with friends and family. We had such a fantastic time in Barcelona. We rented scooters to get the most out from Barcelona's streets and the beauty of the city. We visited the amusement park 'Tibidabo', explored the beaches on the coastline of the town, have amazing cocktails in the best rooftop bars in Barcelona, we accidentally walked in the, once in a year house music rooftop parties at The Gates Diagonal Barcelona hotel. I believe we have a lot more exploring todo Barcelona.
Tapas was the star food in the town; my favourite tapas restaurant is one where we had a seven-course meal, no menu was given, so every dish was a surprise. Which made it even more memorable, it will be a secret which kept us more excitement!
Tiia and I stayed absolutely fantastic hotel/apartment in Barcelona. I can say this was my favourite one so far! They have created the atmosphere so welcomely; the breakfast room was at the same time the place to go to chill, read books and magazines and sip the coffee.
We had a room suite, with an ensuite bathroom, bedroom and living room all together as a studio apartment style. I fell in love with the design of the room. It reminded me of a Nordic apartment, using a lot of wood and other fabrics related to nature. The sheets are 100% Cotton. The apartment was spacious and bright. The apartments can accommodate up to 4 people. It's an ideal alternative for families, extended stays, or guests who want the privacy and greater space for having their apartment.
This boutique hotel spans two levels of an elegant turn of the century building, which located in the centre of Barcelona. The hotel boasts 12 rooms – 9 Double Superior and 3 Junior Suites – surrounding an internal courtyard, typical of the Eixample neighbourhood. They have two kinds of rooms to choose from; Double room and Junior suite.
