Hopefully you’ve read my previous post, but if not – here’s the link to catch up: Barcelona Day One.
We started day two by going to the La Boqueria Market, which was as busy as expected. There were so many different places offering meat, seafood, fresh juices, and sweet treats. I like to call it a parade of colours and flavours.
Then we decided to try and find Casa Batllo, which led us to the modern part of the city and if I have to be completely honest with you – it actually stole my heart!
I mean the old bit of Barcelona with the narrow streets and little cafes was incredibly pretty, but there was something really magical in the air of those huge boulevards. The thing that impressed me the most was probably how green and peaceful everything was (except from the constant parakeet squeaking, but I didn’t mind that even the slightest).
It was really interesting for me to see how people there commute – which is often by motorcycles and not cars, which definitely explains the lack of traffic and noise.
Our final task for the day was to wander around Badalona (as if we had already explored everything in Barcelona :D). Badalona is a neighborhood by the sea, which was again very peaceful (although I found it very interesting to observe the contrast between all the quiet places and the passionate nature of the Spanish people).
That day for me was one of those when I didn’t feel quite right and hence the lack of good stories and photos.
But I’ll use this post as a reminder to follow me on Instagram because I’m posting some really cool photos there as well! Thank you again for hanging around with me till the end!
