Trip Report Barcelona, I'm here and I love it!!

Jump to last reply

I was going to do a trip report as we go along but the ipad has totally frustrated me to death. I cant do spell check, it doesnt capitalize or do apostrophes so please bear with all the mistakes

People always ask "will I like Barcelona if I like Paris"....For me the answer has been yes! This is one fabulous place. It is truly a beautiful place, the people are so friendly, the food is wonderful and the shopping is incredible.

I'm going to tell u a little of our trip as it goes along and will fill in when im back home

We arrived last thurs, klm from san francisco through amsterdam. We arrived about 430 in the afternoon at our apartment rented through habitat barcelona. The company was great to deal with, the price was very reasonable,u get what u pay for! We are on Rambla Catalanya at about Diagonal, great location for shopping and eating. The apartment is not to my liking but ill post about that when im home.

We unpack, use an app on my iphone called "around me" and locate a grocery store two blocks away. Its small but we only need breakfast things...we are unpacked, have set up the kitchen and need to find food soon. Its only about 7pm but we only have about an hour left in us until we crash for 15 hours.

We choose Cerveceria Catalana which is a block away. In our jet lag stupor we try to sit at the bar but cant find two seats together and we dont think we can ask someone to move over one stool. Then we see someone leaving the seafood bar and there r two seats but this man with a newspaper waves us away..ok we are tired and dull, we take a table which turns out to be a blessing! We get a menu, we can figure it out cuz it has english translations and the waiters couldnt be nicer. I get a glass of house white wine cuz they only have half bottles of cava(my preferance), my DH a coke lite and we start with fried artichokes,delish!, grilled prawns with garlic and olive oil,calamari roman style, which turns out to be big breaded fried rings of calamari, the waiter suggestes we get the "special" potatoes brava which has the addition of two soft eggs on top,when all mixed together it was heaven, and the tinyest bagette sandwich with bacon and roquefort. Total bill with another wine. 31€. We fall into a very happy coma!
