Time flies when you are having fun, isn’t that what they say? Well I can not believe it has been a year since my trip to Spain where my mom and I explored Barcelona, Monserrat, Madrid, and Toledo and today, one year later, I am sharing one of my favorite parts of the Spanish seaside mecca. In case you missed it earlier this week I have already shared my favorite shots from the Temple de Debod yesterday or you can check out my entire travel series from Spain here and here. But now to my evening on La Rambla and the Barcelona Waterfront.
When I plan trips I love to stay in the heart of the city and in Barcelona we really lucked out, staying just off La Rambla. I had heard about this famous street for years and was surprised to find that it is less than a mile long but that 1.2 kilometers is jam packed on both sides with shops, restaurants, and busy Spanish life, especially as it is a pedestrian street. It heads downhill and dead=ends into the Christopher Columbus Monument, the Plaça de Catalunya, and the Barcelona waterfront which is vibrant any time of day, even on this overcast Tuesday evening.
And then this is from Snapchat but I couldn’t not included it here! Love you Mom!
This particular evening after our stroll we worked up quite an appetite and had every intension of checking out a new restaurant but ended up going back to La Alcoba de Azul for dinner which you can read all about here where I called it the best tostas in Barcelona. If you are the city, I definitely recommend checking out the La Rambla and the Barcelona Waterfront.
Have you ever been to Barcelona?
