TOP 5 favs about { B A R C E L O N A }

Top 5 favorite things about Barcelona:

1. { C O F F E E } - seriously the best coffee of my life! Thick and frothy. I learned how to order what I want pretty fast and could not stop drinking it. Café con leche, por favor! 

Absolutely delish!

2. { A R C H I T E C T U R E } - by far the prettiest city I have seen! All the areas of the city are so full of history and unique architecture. Very detailed and unusual buildings fill every corner of the city. Gaudi was a very famous architect that had a huge influence on the architecture with a distinct style. His work is seen all through the city and was influence by nature, featuring curved stone, mosaic tile, and color. It is nothing like you have seen before.

La Sagrada Familia - Gaudi's probably most fabous project. This Basilica has been under construction for over a hunder years and is due to be completed by 2026.

3. { T A P A S } - exactly my kind of eating! I love sampling various dishes and making a meal out of it. Everything was delicious! Loved the bread with tomato (Pan Con Tomato)...I know sounds so simple and it is so good. They toast the bread, and then rub it with olive oil, garlic, and tomato...amaze!

Spanish tomato bread...yum!

roasted veggies

smoked salmon

burrata cheese, ham croquettes, and patatas bravas

4. { C A V A } - flows at all hours of the day and night! I have seen people sipping it in the early morning at the cafes, as they read the paper...fabulous! I drank nothing but coffee and cava...gotta love vacation.

5. { B A K E R I E S } - where do I start? Most amazing pastries and desserts. I think I had a croissant almost every day. Also, loved the mini sandwiches. It was great to be able to get several things at once!

this bakery was right around the corner where I was staying. I was a regular during duration of my stay

breaks for one...guiltless joy!

Of course there is also great shopping, insane amount of museums, and sights to see. From reading this post, you are now sure that I really like to eat and drink. That is pretty accurate and I am very ok with that :)

Have a fabulous weekend...xo
