At the beginning of our summer, Matt and I went on our first holiday to Spain. We spent 5 days in Salou and then 4 days in Barcelona. It was amazing, it was the best first holiday we could have had and I’m so looking forward to another trip away with my handsome. Barcelona is a busy, busy place. It’s bloomin’ huge! but regardless of the size, it’s a beautiful place and is full of history, stories, and imagination. It has the most gorgeous little streets and the people are so polite and welcoming. It really is a truly captivating place. The best thing about Barcelona was definitely the fountains, they’re on every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening and are fabulous. Sagrada Familia was fantastic and represents so much history of the city and Park Guell was amazing, in such a stunning location and is a beautiful area to relax and embrace the Spanish culture.
The food is to die for as well, we fell in love with this little restaurant in Cap Salou, called Smugglers. They do the best pulled-pork nachos and my mouth waters every time I think about them. We actually spent a fair bit of time in Port Aventura Theme Park and Water Park, they were the highlight of our trip for me. I love theme parks and water rides and lazy rivers are just the best things when you’re in the sun all day. If you ever get to visit, my favourite ride was Shambala. You should check it out, it’s so smooth and fun to ride and the views are even nicer.
